Pray for Xin Xuemei, Wife of Imprisoned Pastor Huang Quirui

China

Xin Xuemei’s husband, Pastor Huang Quirui, was arrested on June 21, 2014, by Chinese authorities for “illegal business operations” related to his work at a kindergarten run by the Liangren house church. Xin Xuemei says that although life is sometimes hard without her husband, she does “not feel pressed because I really feel the true joy in my heart.” She says her husband, who has six months left in his sentence, remains in good health and asks her to look in on other church members to ensure that they are well. She and her daughter are able to visit him for short periods of time once a month.
