Friends, as the 2020 World Watch List—the ranking of the top 50 countries where Christians are persecuted most for their faith—has been released, we see that China moved up four spots to number 23.

Tap the “watch video” link below to hear a personal account of a Chinese Christian whose house church was raided and shut down by the government.
