Chen Guancheng, Sold Down the River??? Prayers Please

Chen Guancheng the blind human rights activist who witnessed publicly to the policy of forced abortions and sterilisations in China, has been "released" into hospital by the USA, Mr Guancheng escaped from being under house arrest for a year or so and fled to the US embassy last week. Speculation is rife that Mr Guancheng's wife was tied to a chair and beaten by guards to force him to agree to return home. He had previously been prepared to stay in China, but now the family wish to leave the country. Prayers are urgently needed for their well-being.
It is worth remembering his courage and endurance: A friend who helped him to escape said "He injured his leg when he landed and it took him 20 hours to make his way around eight roadblocks. He told me he fell over at least 200 times, before he got picked up on Monday and driven to Beijing."
