I have been following the persecution by the Chinese state of the Beijing Shouwang Church ever since I discovered that I know a brother from this congregation. Please pray for them. For the facts of the case, read this report: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/11/15/ap/asia/main5654121.shtml. It was very telling that there are concerns that President Obama might be completely silent on this matter of religious freedom when he visits with Chinese leaders. Not good.
