In a bold move, the Chinese government has executed the largest expulsion of foreign missionaries in recent memory. In 1954, the Chinese Communist government expelled all foreign religious workers after taking power in 1949. Since then, China has refused to recognize international missionary status. As a result, many missionaries work in education or corporate sectors to stay in China.

Pray for those who work diligently to spread the gospel there.
