      CHINA: Executed for Distributing Bibles
      Brought to you by The Voice of the Martyrs
       
      When 34-year old Jiang Zongxiu went to her neighboring market
      last June in Guizhou Province, China. Along with her mother-in-law,
      Jiang went through the marketplace, taking opportunities to
      hand out Bibles and Christian literature and telling people
      about Jesus. Only this day they had an encounter with the
      Chinese police.
       
      The two Christian women were handcuffed together and brought
      to the police station. They were interrogated throughout the
      evening of the 17th. The next morning they were sentenced by
      the Public Security Bureau (PSB) to 15 days incarceration for
      "suspected spreading of rumor and disturbing the social order."

      Security Bureau (PSB) to 15 days incarceration for "suspected
      spreading of rumor and disturbing the social order."
       
      Jiang and her mother-in-law knew the risk of spreading
      Christian literature in communist China. Both had been
      active in their church for more than 10 years and dared to
      go forth. Even when they were arrested, interrogated and
      sentenced to serve 15 days, they were willing to accept the
      consequences of their actions—all from a government that
      claims to have "freedom of religion."
       
      But it was not enough for the PSB to arrest and beat
      these two Christian women for the crime of passing our
      Christian literature. In the afternoon of June 18th, Mrs.
      Jiang Zongziu was pronounced dead by the PSB office of
      Tongzi County. They claimed she died of "natural causes."
      The fact is she was beaten to death.
       
      The Voice of the Martyrs has received video testimony
      from the surviving family, photos of Jiang body showing
      her bruised body, and a copy of the actual arrest document.
      All of this had to be smuggled out of China as the
      authorities continue to attempt to hide their systematic
      persecution of Christians. An international campaign is
      now under way on behalf of the surviving family.
       
      Much of the world would like you to believe Christians are
      no longer persecuted. Sister Jiang’s family would disagree.
