Report wisewords September 9, 2019 5:31 AM BST
After many years in prison, he escaped from Zhengzhou Maximum Security prison from which it is reported that nobody had previously escaped.[5] He described how he heard the voice of the Holy Spirit, telling him to simply walk out the heavily guarded prison gate. Despite the risk of being shot to death on the spot, he wrote later that he obeyed the voice, and walked straight through several prison doors that were somehow left open in front of many prison guards, across the prison yard and finally out of the main gate. Brother Yun stated that it was as if he had become invisible to the guards who stared straight through him.[2] Although many expressed doubts that such a thing could happen, some prison guards have lost their jobs for this 'embarrassing mishap.'[2] It is reported that the official investigation by the Chinese Government concluded that Brother Yun received no human help in his escape.[2] These reports have been confirmed by numerous prisoners who occupied the same prison cell as Brother Yun.[citation needed] He remains the only person to have escaped from this notorious maximum security prison.
