One family began receiving our Baby Shower Gifts last month, but after their daughter got sick, they visited a spirit-doctor who told them that their daughter was sick because they were receiving funds from Christians. They withdrew from the program immediately and returned their first stipend. Pray that they would escape from Satan's grip of fear, and that they would know the perfect Love, the one who casts out all fear!
Praise the Lord! He is making Himself known at one of our sites in China. Please pray for the following people who have recently come to Christ:
1) Guan and her mother Zhao, who find themselves spiritually weak and hope that God can strengthen their faith;
2) Hong and her wife Wei, who want God to open their minds so that they can understand His words; and
3) A Tibetan mother who decided to follow Jesus, but is rejected by her husband because of this decision.
Two mothers in the Baby Shower Program have been facing difficulties delivering their babies. One of them fell sick and had a fever during delivery, which made her husband and parents very worried. Please pray that God will bring peace and healing to this whole family. Another pregnant mother planned to deliver her baby at a local hospital, but got rejected because she had already given birth to two baby girls. Now, the mother has to find a hospital in another town that can help deliver her baby. Please pray that God would provide such a hospital to this mother.

What an answer to prayer, as it was clearly the Holy Spirit moving in their hearts to keep the baby and to cancel the abortion appointment.

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
