Please pray for 13-year-old Ying from our Orphan Care Program. Her mother left her when she was ten after her parents divorced. Ying now lives with her father, grandparents, and aunt (who has epilepsy). Ying's father, who used to work as a driver to provide for the family, had a car accident in June 2013. He is about to have his second surgery, but the family is unable to afford its cost. The family has already been spending 7 to 8 thousand yuan ($1100 - 1300) per month on medicine alone. As a result, they are shouldering a debt of more than 30 thousand yuan ($4800). Ying's family now relies on her grandfather to make a living by picking up odd jobs here and there. Every day, he leaves home at 2:00 am and works for more than 10 hours, recieving merely 70-80 ($11-13) yuan in return. Whenever our field workers visit Ying, her grandmother is in tears because of the family's desperate situation.

 

Mother Accepts Christ, Still Battling Idolatry

Mrs. Li is a mother who enrolled in the Baby Shower Program this March and she is expected to give birth this August. Our workers have spent a lot of time sharing the Gospel with her and praying for her. After our workers' second visit, Mrs. Li was willing to accept Christ Jesus as her Savior! She wanted to go to church the following day, but was she couldn't because she was having pain in her foot. Now that she has entered late-stage pregnancy, it is difficult for her to leave her house. There is a statue of an idol in her house that she once worshiped in the hope of receiving good health, and this may be a stronghold over her house. Please pray that the Lord would give her the determination to destroy this idol physically and spiritually so that her house and mind can be completely cleansed. 

 

Field Workers Organizing Sharing Session for Baby Shower Families

A couple who works for All Girls Allowed in China is organizing a sharing session early next month for some of the families who have graduated from the Baby Shower Program. Around five families have decided to participate and the couple has also invited another worker of ours to come and share her testimony. The topics of the event will revolve around sexual purity and the harmful effects of abortion.

 

This is a wonderful opportunity to share the Choose Life Message with these families and invite Jesus to open their hearts and minds to Him. Please pray that the Lord would prepare the hearts of our field workers and the participating families and that He would watch over the security of the event venue.

We recently recieved news that one of our brothers in China went to the hospital with a severe stomach ache and learned that he has kidney stones. The stones are very painful, and while the hospital gave him painkillers that have helped a little bit, he is seeking a larger hospital that can give him more complete care.

 

Please pray that God would heal our brother and give him rest and refreshment.

Sister Wu was struggling with her pregnancy because the wound from her previous c-section had not properly healed and her baby was causing the wound to hurt. Doctors were not sure that Sister Wu could carry her baby full term because of this, but a few days ago she delivered a healthy baby boy via c-section. Both the mother and child are doing well and Sister Wu says "thank you for your prayers!"

Couple Expecting Twins, Persuaded by Doctor to Keep Them

Mr. and Mrs. Xia live with their 2-year-old daughter in a remote rural village in China. When Mrs. Xia found out that she was pregnant with a second child, she went to the hospital with her husband to schedule an appointment for an abortion. The doctor who saw them is a follower of Christ. Before Mrs. Xia made her appointment, the doctor had learned about the Baby Shower Program from our workers and had already secretly persuaded several couples not to have abortions. Some of these couples are now enrolled in the Baby Shower Program. After the appointment, the doctor caught up with Mr. and Mrs. Xia outside the hospital and advised them to keep the child. She gave the couple one of our worker's phone numbers.

 

"When we heard the news and came to Mrs. Xia's village, she was already 9 months pregnant." said one of our field workers. "She said she is living under enormous pressure. She is pregnant with twins, and already knows that one of them is a girl."

 

Our field workers told this family that they are followers of Christ and that they want to help them, but Mr. and Mrs. Xia seemed not to care. Having three children will place this family in danger of punishment from the government. Please pray for this family and their twin unborn babies. Pray that Mr. and Mrs. Xia would accept Christ and find joy and peace in the midst of this hard time. Also pray that their household will be protected from government officials seeking to bring them harm.
