In 2009, Beijing Attorney Jiang Tianyong's wife was led to accept Christ as her Savior before taking communion.
(The picture of Jiang Tianyong and his wife Jin Bianling was taken in 2009 after Jin became a Christian.)
(Beijing– April 19, 2011) Jiang Tianyong, one of several prominent Christian human rights lawyers who were kidnapped on February 19 and have been missing for two months, finally returned home at 6 p.m. Beijing time on April 19, 2011. Bob Fu, president of ChinaAid, has learned from Jiang Tianyong’s wife Jin Bianling, that the lawyer lost much weight but is in good spirits. It seems very probable that, during a period of being detained by the National Security forces, he suffered much physically.

Read Jin Bianling’s letter of appeal for her husband, which ChinaAid posted the day before his release:

ChinaAid encourages concerned individuals to pray for Jiang Tianyong’s physical and mental recovery, and to continue to remember the other missing Christian human rights lawyers and other human rights defenders.
