Pastor Zhang update.

Update below on Zhang.

July 4th 2017

We’ve received reports that Pastor Zhang Shaojie, the leader of Nanle Country Christian Church, is currently enduring severe torture. His daughter, Esther, has reported that he is ‘barely alive’, and suffering both physically and mentally from the cruel treatment he’s experiencing, which includes sleep deprivation and starvation – because he recently tried again to appeal against his sentence. His daughter, Esther, said officials told Zhang they would not process his appeal unless he pleaded guilty. The leader of Nanle County Church has served almost four years of a 12-year sentence for ‘fraud’, a sentence that began in 2014.  CSW.
