Dear Donna  

Rallies Scheduled This Week in Washington, D.C. Spotlighting the Massive Human Rights Abuses by North Korea 

Kim Tae Jin spoke of being left naked in a freezing prison cell and forced to sit on quicklime in the rain, resulting in severe burns to her skin. While she was in prison, she said, a fellow inmate known only as Park formed a small “fellowship” of seven Christians. Prison guards eventually caught Park, beat him severely and asked him, “Who told you about the existence of God?”  “Do we have to be told about the existence of the sun to know that it’s there?” Park replied. “We learn its existence by feeling its warmth.”    

Father we thank You for the example of these believers who are willing to take risks in order to help others, and for preserving their lives so that they can continue to do Your work. We ask today for Your divine protection over these faithful servants. Help them to rejoice as they remember the reward that awaits them in heaven.

North Korea Freedom Week (April 27 May 2) is devoted to raising awareness of the plight of North Koreans and the massive human rights and religious rights abuses by the government. This will be the largest-ever U.S. gathering of North Korean defectors and rights activists.  Please refer to the Open Doors website for additional information including a prayer guide for each day.

We pray for all of the events surrounding North Korea Freedom Week and for the refugees who will be speaking on Capitol Hill. We pray that many will learn about the atrocities occurring in North Korea, and that once aware, they will not stand idle, but instead join the cause to free our North Korean brethren. Help us to remember that Your freedom releases us from earthly chains, and that victory lies completely in Your mighty hand. "By faith the walls of Jericho fell,” (Hebrews 11:30).

DAY 85: Gao Zhisheng's Wife Pleads for U.S. Congress to Intervene and Delivers First Installment of Petition

Bob Fu and Geng He present the first installment of the petition to Senator Dorgan"My name is Geng He and I am the wife of political prisoner and lawyer Gao Zhisheng, who is currently being persecuted in mainland China. On March 11 this year, I arrived in the United States with my son and daughter for political asylum. ... We are safe now, but my husband's situation has become more perilous...

"In the past, whenever I was worried about my husband because of his challenges against tyranny, he would often console me by saying...that if one day he would be persecuted because of his ideals and sense of justice, the people in the world who believe in justice would stand by him and support him. I know that he would still harbor this light and hope in his heart while enduring various torments in prison!"

-- Geng He's open letter to the U.S. Congress asking for Congress to intervene on behalf of her husband Gao Zhisheng. Read full letter.

Tens of thousands have brought reality to Gao's hope, by standing with him and crying out for his release and for justice on his behalf. Around the world, those who believe in truth and freedom have prayed, signed the petition, shared it with family and friends and e-mailed Chinese government officials calling for his release.

Because of your efforts, last week, Geng He, together with ChinaAid president Bob Fu, presented the first installment of more than 50,000 signatures from www.FreeGao.com to the co-chairman of the Congressional - Executive Commission on China, U.S. Senator Bryon Dorgan. Simultaneously, ChinaAid delivered the petition to the Chinese Embassy. On Monday, April 27, ChinaAid delivered the petition to office of the Secretary of State. View photos of the petition deliveries.

In addition, Senator Dorgan spoke about Gao's case from the Senate floor, calling the Chinese government to account for Gao's treatment. He also urged the Senate to petition the Chinese government for Gao's immediate release. Other leading senators stood up immediately following Senator Dorgan's speech to express their support for additional actions on behalf of Gao. Read Senator Dorgan's speech.

These tangible demonstrations of concern for Gao from around the world are reverberating through the Communist Party. Contacts inside China say that the wall of silence around Gao Zhisheng's captivity has begun to crack, and have asked ChinaAid to convey their plea for an increase of pressure for Gao's release.

Thank you for your continued partnership in this campaign to free Gao Zhisheng. Your prayers, sending e-mails to Chinese government officials, and forwarding this campaign to family and friends are invaluable to this movement. To quote Gao, "the increased level of confidence of the Chinese Communist Party in treating people with increased cold-blooded brutality and cruelty is the direct result of our silence." Thank you for speaking out during this critical hour in the life of Gao Zhisheng.
