Released Jan. 25, 2008
On December 22, 2006, Pastor Wang Weiliang and seven other church leaders were sentenced from one year to three and one-half years in prison by the People‘s Court of Xiaoshan District, China. Four are in prison, four received suspended sentences. In prison, the men are forced to make clothing and shoes for export and prohibited from praying openly or reading the Bible. These leaders were arrested after thousands of PSB officers bulldozed their church building on July 29, 2006.
Christians in China face numerous challenges, but the church is strengthened in the midst of persecution by believers like you. VOM is actively expanding help to underground Bible schools preparing leaders to spread the gospel in China.
