(China)–China tops today’s news as the government reportedly is considering changes in its religious policy. Reports indicate some easing of pressure among unregistered house churches. President of Open Doors U-S-A, Terry Madison, says he’s not getting overly excited about the report. “It may be a little premature to say there are going to be great, dramatic changes. A month, two three, four down the road will tell us certainly whether the changes have really come to pass. I think it’s also premature to know exactly what these changes are. But, we continue to support the house church movement and will do so right through whatever choices they make.” Madison says that hasn’t changed their focus of training church leaders and providing them with material. He says support is needed. “Some have actually joined us as couriers, going through Asia and taking God’s word into China. But, all can pray and all can give toward the need of a Bible.” A gift of 40-dollars can provide Christians with 10 Bibles where God’s word is scarce.
