Persecution Escalates Against ERCC
Police even put a wheel lock on ERCC member Deng Yan on May 20th that had to be unlocked by firefighters. Police also monitored the home of Shu Qiong and refused to let her visit her sick father alone, instead taking her to the hospital in a police car. ERCC is one of the most persecuted house churches in China with Pastor Wang Yi still in jail to this day (please encourage him and write a letter to his prison address)!
Please keep Pastor Wang and family, along with everyone associated with ERCC in your prayers, along with the officials who have persecuted and harassed church members for their faith
CCP Persecution Leaves Christian Couple Homeless
Please keep Chang and Li in your prayers, along with their entire family and the officials who watch over Chang and Li in jail
Massive Xinjiang Leak Confirms Brutal Torture & Abuse
For example, the CCP has long argued camps in western China are voluntary "vocational camps." Photos of detainees in the leaks featured armed guards close by. Even Ovalbek Turdakun, who spent time in a CCP concentration camp and was rescued by ChinaAid in April 2022, verified guards stood behind students with shields and handcuffs during "instruction."
A special website - The Xinjiang Police Files - has been set up to document and categorize thousands of detainee photos, more than 300,000 personal records, and 23,000+ detainee records. Dr. Adrian Zenz from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation led a research team who authenticated and reviewed the information.
Please keep everyone in concentration camps across western China in your prayers, along with the guards and leaders of these camps
Cardinal Joseph Zen Shares Personal Walk Of Faith
Cardinal Zen made a court appearance in late May and pled not guilty to charges made against him. In the middle of the month, Cardinal Zen attended an online program and chose to share his faith and beliefs instead of using the time to respond to allegations against him.
Visit ChinaAid's website to read snippets of his remarks, which focused on a message to younger generations to be upright and understand righteousness.
Please keep Cardinal Zen and all Christians across Hong Kong in your prayers
