Chinese brother Pastor Hu Shigen

Please pray for our Chinese brother Pastor Hu Shigen who has just been given a seven-year jail sentence for ‘subversion’. He was arrested in July 2015 as part of a wider crackdown in which 300 human rights lawyers and activists, their colleagues and relatives were arrested, interrogated or ‘disappeared’. One lawyer, Li Heping, who’s also a Christian, has not been seen since; another, Wang Yu, has been released on a bail following a televised ‘confession’ last week in which she blamed ‘foreign forces’ for influencing her firm’s work. More than 20 others remain in detention: pray for their release. (Sources: Christian Solidarity Worldwide, The Guardian newspaper)
