On February 1, 2020, the Hong Kong Bible Society sent a letter to the China Christian Council & Three-Self Patriotic Movement (CCC&TSPM), according to the latter.
The letter conveyed care and blessings. It reads, "We, as brethren, share in your weal and woe. Knowing the novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan has spread to all the provinces, the directors and co-workers of Hong Kong Bible Society are deeply concerned. We all pray in the Lord that the omniscient God would be merciful to cure all the patients and protect the doctors and nurses in the frontline! May the blood of the glorious and merciful Lord cover this land and bestow his blessings to our Chinese land!"
The letter continues, "Despite the epidemic cases also in Hong Kong, we will continue to keep watch for our family in Wuhan, Hubei Province, and other parts in the mainland. We believe that the Lord who keeps his covenant of love shall have mercy!"
According to its official website, HK Bible Society was established in 1950. In 1955, it formally developed a core function of printing and distribution of Chinese and foreign language Bibles. In 1964, to meet widespread demand, the United Bible Societies invested HK$700,000 in the building of a printing center in Hong Kong. Printing and distribution of Bibles became an important localized responsibility since then.
