Church members worshipping in Jeju 

Imagine if your church decided to pack up and move to a totally different country!  

After facing immense perseuction and harassment from the Chinese Communist Party, 28 adults and 32 children from Shenzhen Reformed Holy Church embarked on a modern-day Mayflower expedition and arrived in Jeju, South Korea to live.

All they wanted was look forward to a place where worship and praise can be freely admired!”

But there's a heavy price to pay for Christians able to escape President Xi Jinping's China. 

I’m sure you can imagine there would be immensely harsh repercussions against these brave Christians if they were forcebly repatriated to China. 

“This is a modern ‘Mayflower’ exodus story. The emergent exile of the whole congregation of the Shenzhen Shengdao Presbyterian Church shows religious persecution has been rapidly deteriorating in Communist China,” said Dr. Rev. Bob Fu, a close friend of the church. “We know the church members, including 32 children, have been facing constant threats from China and the absolute unreasonable rejection of asylum protection applications by the South Korean government. We appeal to the Biden Administration to immediately work with allies in Asia to ensure the congregation’s safety from repatriation and to resettle these credibly persecuted church members into the US as refugees.”

Your gift helps Shenzhen Reformed Holy Church congregants pay for their legal fees, helps with basic living expenses in Jeju, and will also go towards resettlement costs if they are accepted in the United States as refugees.
