Ad Feedback

CWN.org  - In China, police targeted Christians in several provinces this Christmas season.

The China Aid Association reported that police in Henan province arrested nine women during a nativity play on Christmas Eve.

In Xinjiang autonomous province, police closed a house church meeting and threatened to arrest the pastor.

This week, CAA released pictures of two Christian men who have been imprisoned in Xinjiang province for telling others about Jesus and distributing Christian literature.

Before his arrest, Christian Wusiman Yiming explained why he risked his freedom.

"I have this feeling within me, as if I needed to pay my debt to God. Because God loves me so much," he said. "But how do I respond? I do not tell my friends that I am a Christian, but I simply try to show them Jesus' love."

Both men are part of an ethnic minority called Uighurs, most of whom are Muslim.

Christian World News spoke with Bob Fu of the China Aid Association about the challenges faced by these Christians.
