Hand-copied Bible texts from China given to Bushes



Thursday, November 10, 2011

Bush Institute: "Bob" Xiqiu Fu, president and founder of China Aid Association and former house church leader who was imprisoned in 1996, presented Bible texts to Laura and George Bush.
More than a decade ago, prisoners in a Chinese labor camp who were charged with illegal religious gathering began to copy by hand the text of a smuggled Bible. The copied Bibles were read by Christians in the camp for more than a year before being smuggled out of the camp. The books came to the United States and were given to the China Aid Association on behalf of the house church movement in China.

The association recently presented former President George W. Bush with some of the hand-copied pages for the George W. Bush Institute’s Freedom Collection. The Chinese prisoners’ stories, along with others who have led or participated in freedom movements around the world, will be part of the collection and displayed on the collection’s website, which is set to launch in early 2012.
