Chinese student expelled from school for his Christian faith
November 10, 2009
(christiansunite.com) - Chen Le, a second-year high school student, was officially expelled from Huashan Middle School on October 20 after he signed a document confirming his Christian faith.
The official notice of expulsion stated, "was found by Bazhou Public Security Agency and other related agencies to have engaged in Christian gatherings. His school was notified that it should educate the student and persuade him to mend his ways. However'Ä¶this student persists in his belief that he should not renounce his Christian belief. He can't promise that he will not believe in Christianity or attend Christian activities."
Due to the expulsion, Chen Le is now barred from taking the mandatory college entrance exam, disallowing him to pursue further education. Chen Le has responded saying, "I would rather be forced out of school, than deny my faith."
Thank God for the bold faith of Chen Le. Ask God to open a door for him so he may continue in his education. You can stand in solidarity with Chen Le by posting a prayer for him on our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall at www.persecution.net/prayerwall.
