UPDATE: Chen Le, a 17-year-old high school student who was expelled from school because of his Christian faith, was invited on Oct. 29 to return to school, according to a report from the China Aid Association.
On Oc. 28, the Party Secretary of the High School Division and several other party members and instructors from the Huashan Middle School visited Chen Le at his home and politely invited him to return to his studies. The Party Secretary was reportedly deeply concerned by international pressure caused by the expulsion.
Chen Le was expelled from his high school on Oct. 20 after refusing to denounce his faith and after signing a document confirming he was a Christian. Praise God for Chen Le’s courage and for this positive outcome. Pray that God will protect and encourage him as he continues to stand for Christ.
