(Beijing—April 13, 2019) An American pastor serving a life sentence in China is begging his family to secure his release.
David Lin, a Chinese American pastor, was placed under house arrest in China in 2006, when he tried to gain government permission to run a ministry within China. He was subsequently jailed, and authorities then served him a fraud charge in 2009, convicted him, and gave him a life sentence.
For 12 years, Lin was allowed a Bible, and he even started a ministry within the prison. However, his Bible was sent to the United States in December 2018, and, a few months afterward, Lin phoned his family and requested assistance in getting out of the prison.
Lin’s health is deteriorating. To sign a petition for his release, please visit FreePastorLin.com, from which the information in this report that regards Lin was gathered.
