On August 7, Shuguang Church in Baoji, China's western Shaanxi held a memorial service for Pastor Li Jian, who died at the age of 38.

Elder Yi Lianmei gave the eulogy for Pastor Li. She shared details about Pastor Li’s brief life, focusing on the work he did for the Lord and his ministry at the Shuguang Church and in his brothers’ churches for the past 18 years.

She recounted touching stories of Pastor Li, who struggled with the illness that hospitalized him from October last year until he returned to his Heavenly Family and rested in the Lord on March 11, 2020. At the end of the eulogy, Elder Yi Lianmei reported the good news that Pastor Li had been recommended for ordination by the church in February before his death. This had not been made public because of the current pandemic and his early death. Despite this, Elder Yi Lianmei said: "Please allow me to say, Pastor Li rest in peace!"

Sister Huang, Pastor Li’s wife, and his relatives also shared at the memorial, recalling his life of faith and how loved the Lord and took good care of his family.
