China 18 member's lawyer reports dissident is in good health, spirits

(Guangzhou, Guangdong—Oct. 1, 2015) China 18 member Tang Jingling met with his lawyer on Friday and reported that his health is even better than before he was detained and that he is in good spirits.

Lawyer Ge Yongxi told China Aid that Tang exercises and reads daily, which keeps his physical and mental health in good shape.

However, the Guangzhou detention center Tang is held in will not allow Tang’s wife to send him a Bible. Instead, Tang asked his lawyer to read a passage from the Bible and Streams in the Desert by L.B. Cowman. “You will find Mr. Tang is a devout Christian filled with the Holy Spirit,” Ge said. He also compared Tang to the apostle Paul, who once said “I will not be shaken.”

Ge said the two also discussed events that had happened domestically and abroad. While Tang made light of how the Chinese Communists “put chains on him,” he was very concerned about other Chinese citizens who are experiencing persecution, Ge said.

“He asked me to convey his greetings to everyone and his hope that we can survive the most difficult and darkest moments and greet the dawn together,” Ge said. “Finally, Mr. Tang wished everyone a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival: ‘May your life be as bright as the full moon!’”
