Communist officials in China deported 13 families in 2017 who had been living and working in the country as missionaries.
According to The Christian Post, the Communist officials said the missionaries were “illegally” living in the country because of their Christian work.
A Korean missionary who was also deported detailed the 2017 deportation recently in an interview.
He told the International Christian Concern that in 2016 a missionary leader arrived at a Chinese station and was immediately arrested. Later the rest of the mission team of 13 South Korean families was taken into police custody.
Police charged the groups with “being missionaries” and told them they were illegally in the country.
Chinese law says that foreigners may not start religious groups or try to convert people.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
