CHINA:House Church Leaders Released From Labor Camp

On January 8, four house church leaders were released from a labor camp in Hubei province, China. According to China Aid Association, the Hubei Provincial Re-education Through Labor Administration Committee decided to repeal a decision by the Re-education Through Labor Administration Committee, to keep the leaders in prison. Four male and five female church leaders were arrested on August 6, 2007, when they were found having a Sunday worship service. They were accused of the "crime of engaging in organizing and making use of evil cult organization to undermine the enforcement of state laws." Three female leaders are still being held.Praise God for the release of the four house churches.Pray for the families and leaders who are still in prison. Ask God to give them courage during this difficult time, and for their lives to be a testimony to their persecutors.
