WEB Notes: The Chinese people go through a lot to honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Make sure to send a prayer up for them to our Father.
More than 100 Christians have been sent to “re-education” camps in China’s north-western Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in the past few months, World Watch Monitor has learned.
In these camps, also known as “study centres” or “mind-transformation centres”, they are taught how to be loyal to the communist ideology.
Most of those detained are from the Uyghur ethnic minority group and have a Muslim background. In recent years the Uyghurs they have been the prime targets of the government’s “anti-terror” campaign, aimed at cracking down on both separatist groups and militant Islamists. But those who have converted to Christianity have also been caught up in the crackdown.
