Banned From Attending Mom's Funeral
About a month ago, Elder Hao was permitted to video call his mother. She said "I believe in Him!" when asked about her belief in God, leading Elder Hao to remark “If you believe, we should not be afraid. We will have peace and joy from God. Our flesh may perish, but we will return to our home in heaven.”
Please keep Elder Hao and his colleague Elder Wu Jian in your prayers along with all those who keep persecuting these leaders and the church.

Calls For Sanctions Against CCP Officials
The Xinjiang Police Files were released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOCMF) in May detailing the atrocities by the Chinese government in Xinjiang concentration camps. After an anonymous source leaked the details, Dr. Adrian Zenz at VOCMF verified their authenticity. Findings included over 2,000 photos of detainees, over 300,000 personal records, and instructions for guards of the concentration camps. Many of the inmates shown in the photos and records were as old as 74 and as young as 14.
Please keep everyone unjustly jailed in concentration camps across Xinjiang in your prayers, along with the CCP officials and guards in charge of each camp.
