Pray for Zhang Xiuhong, Imprisoned for Church Work

[210] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Zhang.

Zhang Xiuhong, a volunteer accountant for the Living Stone Church (or Huoshi) in China, was recently sentenced to five years in prison because of her work with the church. She was arrested in July 2015 on charges of operating an illegal business, but her trial didn’t conclude until February 2017. Zhang’s husband, Chen Zukai, is now caring for their two children as well as for his 80-year-old mother. Chinese authorities have repeatedly targeted the Living Stone Church in recent years, freezing its assets, expelling church members from the property and arresting one of the church’s founders. Pray that Zhang will be granted an early release and that she will have opportunities to share the gospel with other prisoners and guards.
