China's Closing Door

Feb 10, 2020

Today, I'm giving you a real opportunity to help those suffering in China. In addition to the coronavirus, Chinese believers are also suffering from the greatest spike of religious persecution in their history.

Innocent people are being arrested, jailed, dehumanized, tortured, and killed in China right now because of their faith. But YOU can help change this!

How? Our nation is about to go into Phase II of trade negotiations with China. If we walk into these negotiations asking for religious freedom as a part of our negotiations, we could provide POWERFUL RELIEF for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

There are heartbreaking stories of prisoners being denied food, only allowed one trip to the bathroom per day, being beaten, and even submerged into human waste. And all that was happening BEFORE the recent escalation of persecution by the Communist Party.

This abuse has gripped the hearts of our team! We are working on Capitol Hill to spread our "Religious Freedom for China" petition to those responsible for setting up these trade negotiations. But we desperately need more voices coming together to make a powerful statement to these negotiators. This is a very important deadline. Negotiations start in just a few days.

This is it. If we miss this opportunity, months or even years could pass before we have another chance this powerful to stand up for those who are being persecuted today. You can choose one or both of the following ways to make your voice heard. - Mat

In addition, I want to let you know that my staff on Capitol Hill is in dynamic private meetings alerting fellow organizations to this important crossroads for China. We are asking for a strong, unified front of conservative organizations to come beside us to urge our politicians to stand up for religious freedom, not just here in America, but around the world!

Today we are preparing the necessary resources and a letter to quickly circulate among our allies in D.C. Our goal is to have an outpouring of groups that come together to demand justice, peace, and freedom for believers in China!

Your partnership and friendship with Liberty Counsel Action enables us to maintain full-time staff on Capitol Hill, including a lawyer who is daily building relationships so that when your petition and faxes arrive in D.C., we have created a path for your voice to have its greatest impact.

Please pray about becoming a monthly financial partner with us so that we can continue to show up and win these battles. Or give a one-time gift today to help us fight for the freedom of our Chinese brothers and sisters in Christ.

I just wanted to highlight one of the critical reasons we set up our faxing system for you. The U.S. House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee will both be highly involved in these trade negotiations.

In just a few clicks, you can reach all 67 people with a strategic fax. This will touch every single person who is on the front lines of these upcoming negotiations. Together we can push for the rights of the Chinese to worship the Lord and share his goodness with others.

I urge you to pray for those in prison in China today, for their faithfulness to God, for their families, and for their future. If you want to give aid directly to those suffering in China, visit our affiliated organization, Liberty Relief International, to help those in critical need.

And I want to say a sincere "Thank you!" for your concern for those who feel forgotten by the rest of the world.

Shining our light into darkness,

Mat Staver, Chairman
Liberty Counsel Action

P.S. We only have a few days left to send an urgent message to the U.S. Trade Representative's office to use our leverage in trade negotiations to advocate for religious freedom in China.

We cannot sit on the sidelines any longer. Help make a difference by sending your faxdonating, and forwarding this message to like-minded friends who care about believers worldwide. Thank you for your prayers.
