Neal is a second generation missionary to Beijing, China, where he lives and serves with his wife Beth, and their 3 daughters,
Lois, Abigail, and Naomi.
This past year, the Rays experienced some very real trials. There were raids on the church, and the congregation had to go into hiding. At present, they still need to move locations each week, but the Lord has kept them safe and as a result, the gospel is still being preached.
As a family, the Rays themselves also had to go into hiding. Things have settled for now and the Lord has kept them safe! They lost their home in the process, but they were able to stay with various members of their congregation until a new home outside of the city could be procured.
