More Than 100 Christians Expelled from China

More than 100 Christians Expelled – -China Aid Association-
Between April and June 2007, more than 100 foreign Christians accused of being involved in illegal religious activities were expelled from China. It is believed the campaign, called Typhoon No. 5, is part of the Chinese government's efforts to prevent foreign Christians from engaging in mission activities before the Beijing Olympics in 2008. China Aid Association (CAA) reports, "This is the largest expulsion of foreign missionaries since 1954 when the Chinese Communist government expelled all foreign religious workers after taking power in 1949. At least five different mission agencies and sources within the Chinese government report that in February, the government launched a massive expulsion campaign against foreign Christians." Pray for believers in China.

Wow...I had'nt heard this. It's strange, because when I looked into the Westin Hotel in China, they stated a Christian church was in the area. I wonder what they are calling illegal religious activities?
