Last week we asked you to take the time to write Yang Xuan and I am very happy to tell you that 21 more letters were written to Yang!!! Praise the Lord for your faithfulness to act!! A big thank you to all of you who did write! Thank you, thank you, thank YOU! The week before we had 115 letters written and this past week 21 letters were written in support of our brother, and even though that number is down from the week before, we are still thankful that more letters were written to our brother in China. The Lord will bless you, as you have blessed him.
This week we would like to ask you to write Zhang Huamei who has been in prison for 636 days.
On Nov. 25, 2009, Zhang Huamei and four other Linfen-Fushan church leaders from Shanxi Province were sentenced to criminal detention for two to seven years, according to China Aid Association. The five church leaders were accused of "gathering people to disturb the public order," because they organized a prayer rally on Sept. 14, the day after 400 military police raided the church's grounds. During the raid, more than 30 believers were seriously wounded and 17 buildings were destroyed.
Please click here to write Zhang a letter of encouragement. Please pray for him and the authorities in China who are involved in the prison system and who are involved in all aspects of Zhang's imprisonment.
Will you also please forward this request to your friends and family so they can join in being a minister to the persecuted church.
