Xinjiang House Church Raided, 8 Arrested

China Aid Association

(XINJIANG – July 13, 2009) On July 3, Beitun House Church in the A’Ler Tai area of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region was raided and 8 Christians were arrested. Two have been released so far. Four believers are still being held in a detention center in an undisclosed location, and two Chinese American missionaries are missing.
Due to the riots that erupted on July 5, in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, ChinaAid has had difficulty contacting believers. Last week, the government cut off all Internet and phone connections to the outside world. ChinaAid issues an urgent request to Christians around the world to pray the violence will cease in Xinjiang, and that the love of Jesus Christ will bring peace and reconciliation between the Han Chinese and Uygurs.
Contact government authorities to express your concern for the four believers from Beitun House Church and the two missing Chinese American missionaries.
