Please pray for the Weihan family

Shi Weihan is a Christian bookstore owner and house church leader who has been in prison since March for printing and distributing Bibles and other Christian literature. Since he is under “administrative detention,” he could be held up to three years without any charges being filed against him.

In August, we reported in The Persecution and Prayer Alert that Weihan’s health was deteriorating due to poor prison conditions and the lack of medication for his diabetes (click here for more). However, according to a recent report from China Aid Association, Weihan’s health appears to be improving and he is now receiving his medication. Friends of Weihan report that he continues to introduce fellow prisoners to Jesus.

We are thankful to God for granting Weihan renewed health. Let us continue to pray for him as he remains in detention. Pray also for Weihan’s wife as she now has to care for their two daughters and carry on the work of the house church on her own. Ask God to protect this family as they continue to face pressure from authorities.
