When one of our field workers, Grace*, told us about Stacy*, we thought it was a "normal" case of a crisis pregnancy in China. Stacy and her husband already had one child, and they recently discovered she was pregnant again. Although they are Christian, they felt they couldn't keep this child, and Stacy confided in our field worker that she was scheduled to get an abortion on 10/30.
The Chinese government is reportedly conducting a mass forced sterilization campaign in the city of Huizhou, Guangdong province. Guangdong province is perhaps better known in the West as Canton province, the home of the Cantonese people and dim sum food. According to reports that All Girls Allowed has not yet been able to verify, women who have already given birth to a child are being forced to either insert an IUD (intra-uterine device) or have a tubal ligation surgery. Please pray that there would be more reliable reports that surface, and that the world would call
Next week, we hope to unveil the new face of our Chinese website, which will be in sync with the new design of our English website. Much work has gone into making the transition, and we hope to do much greater and more concerted promotion of our work among Chinese-speaking communities as a result.
Next week, we will officially launch Chailing.net to the English-speaking world. On this website, visitors can download a free copy of the Chinese version of Chai Ling's memoir, A Heart for Freedom. It is our hope and prayer that many would share this link and book with their Chinese friends, and that the good news of Jesus would go forth as a result! Join us as we ask the Lord to make his name great and to spread the seeds of his kingdom in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and among the rest of the Chinese diaspora through this book.
Recently in a time of prayer, fasting and worship, one All Girls Allowed staff member saw a vision of a hand with a hammer nailing large spikes into the ground as part of a railroad track. Although the work was arduous, challenging and slow, once the track was completely laid down, the train was able to travel on it at tremendous speeds across tremendous distances! The Lord revealed that this was All Girls Allowed's work--to lay down the foundational railroad track in order that others who come later would move much more quickly across the same swath of land. The train can
Recently, All Girls Allowed has learned of two different cases of Chinese women seeking political asylum as they flee the repressive One-Child Policy. Please pray that the Lord would grant them favor as they run from this draconian policy that often leaves them no choice but to leave their country, for those who are blessed enough to be able to leave. However, the application for political asylum is a long and lonely road, as it also represents being cut off from one's homeland and loved ones. Please pray for these two mothers who are seeking political asylum and their fam
