Chinese woman arrested for trying to share the Gospel with Xi Jinping
A Chinese Christian woman was detained for her repeated attempt to share the good news with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan.
The Dalian native was sent back to Liaoning province by the police after her action in Beijing. She was subsequently detained. On Feb. 20, Zhou Jinxia went to Zhongnanhai in Beijing, the central headquarters for the Communist Party of China and the State Council of China, holding up sign asking Xi Jinping to believe in Jesus.
The police in charge arrested her, before Dalian police brought her back to Dalian. She was criminally detained and charged with “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” on the 21st of February. Her family received the notice of her criminal detention from Dalian’s Public Security Bureau’s Xigang Branch on the 1st of March.
According to China Aid, in recent years, Zhou has attempted to share the good news with her Chinese leader for more than 50 times. As early as March 2015, Zhou was detained for ten days for her evangelism activities. In March 2016 and March 2018, she was detained again for the same charge.
