(China)–The Baptist Press reports that a Chinese Christian leader who barely escaped execution in January wants his retrial to be conducted in public this time. 46-year old Gong Shengliang, of the South China Church, is scheduled for a second closed-door tribunal. However, lawyers are fighting for a public trial. Chinese believers are begging the Christian world to pray for them since the government appears to be cracking down on especially evangelistic church groups.
