Guo Yijun Forced Out of Job, Churches Ordered to Stop Meeting
Please pray for the Christians in China who have come under increased persecution from government officials.
11/4//2010 Beijing (China Aid) – Chinese Christian Guo Yijun, an involved member of a house church in Beijing who once worked at a research division in the Ministry of Transportation, was recently summoned to meet with the leaders of his work unit. In the meeting, Guo Yijun learned that they wanted him to quit his job for being invited to attend the Lausanne Congress. He has now resigned from his position.
According to the news sent from Tang Jingling, a laid-off Christian rights defense lawyer, many house churches have been ordered to stop meeting from mid-November to late November during the Asian Games. As a result, many churches have to hold weekly mobile gatherings or hold their worship services in smaller groups.
ChinaAid calls for Christians to pray for strength and encouragement for Guo Yijun and others like him who are facing opposition in the workplace for their faith. We also pray for house church Christians during the Asian Games, and we call on the government officials to stop suppressing their citizens.
