The daughter of Chinese pastor, Zhang Shaojie, has been forced to leave China after being threatened.
Her father is currently serving a 12 year prison sentence after being jailed earlier this month in an alleged dispute with authorities about land.
Activits from a Christian rights group helped Zhang Huixin, her husband and son to flee China and seek reuge in the United States after threats were made against them and the pastor's elderly parents were harrased.
Charity China Aid helped the family leave without detection from communist officials.
Founder Bob Fu said they had been given permission to stay in America for one year before deciding whether to apply for asylum.
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
