UPDATE: 7:07 PM Saturday, May 19, 2012 – “Breaking News CNN Alert: Human rights activist Chen Guangcheng, a month after escaping house arrest in China, arrived Saturday evening in the United States after a flight from Beijing. Chen traveled with his wife and two children. He will participate in a fellowship at New York University.
Watchwoman: Thank you each and every Christian pro-lifer who wrote Obama to keep the pressure on the Red Chinese government to release Chen Guangcheng and his family and allow them to be freed to fly to the USA today! Dear Christian reader, righteous, pro-life activism succeeds! Please, let this be an inspiration to any who might be losing heart. We can win this battle, if we all just get together and put the pressure on the powers that be. There is no power on earth greater than the Church of Jesus Christ. God said this when Jesus told Peter: [Matthew 16:18 KJV] And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. – - – (Jesus is the rock referred to in Matthew 16:18 and Satan will never prevail against Jesus Christ, because He is God and Jesus Christ defeated Satan and his power over man when He hung upon that cross and resurrected three days later! Hallelujah! To God be the glory!) Never give up working for Jesus and His Righteousness. We win! Read the Book of Revelation! Amen! It is the only Book of the Bible that promises a blessing for reading it. [Revelation 1:3 KJV] Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. – - – Now, enjoy the Good News of Jesus Christ and the good news about Chen Guangcheng below. ▬ Donna Calvin

May 19, 2012
Blind dissident Chen Guangcheng and his immediate family have left China on a flight to the United States. They are expected to arrive in Newark, N.J., Saturday evening.
Their departure caps off three weeks of roller coaster diplomacy that reached the very highest levels of Chinese government and the White House.
The human rights activist is best known for his fight against forced abortions and sterilisations under the One Child Policy.
He served a four year prison sentence for what are widely believed to have been trumped up charges before being placed under a brutal, extra-judicial house arrest in his hometown province of Shandong.
Several media outlets, as well as human rights supporters in the U.S., cited late May as a potential departure date if all rules for passport applications were strictly adhered to.
But on Saturday, social media reports surfaced that said Chen had left the hospital. By midday, Chen spoke to the AFP and the Associated Press to say he was at the airport with his family and while he had no details, he believed they would be leaving that day.
State Dept Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland confirmed that Chen and his family left China so he can pursue studies at an American university.
“We are looking forward to his arrival in the United States later today. We also express our appreciation for the manner in which we were able to resolve this matter and to support Mr. Chen’s desire to study in the U.S. and pursue his goals,” Nuland said.
His departure is in some ways bittersweet. His supporters by and large agree the only way he will be truly safe is outside China.
But for Chen, and dissidents before him, leaving is a compromise; he may be safer but he is also farther away from his cause.
Daring Escape Attempt On April 22, Chen made a daring and highly risky escape with the assistance of his wife.
After several days in hiding, after a car chase and near arrest by Beijing authorities, he sought refuge at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing on Friday, April 27.
There’s a lot more to read and it’s very important and captivating, but because of copyright rules, I couldn’t put more here so please, read the rest of the story…
FROM: ONE MILLION MOMS AND DADS…Chen Guangcheng is the leading activist in China against the forced abortions, coercive sterilizations and infanticides that result from the one child policy there. Chen recently escaped house arrest and is now in an American Embassy in Beijing.
According to OneNewsNow, Chen and his family had been harassed and kept under house arrest since the summer of 2005, except for a four-year period when Chen was jailed for exposing the horrendous forced abortion policies of China.
After Chen’s release in September 2010, the family was again placed under house arrest, their movements severely restricted, with even 6-year-old daughter Kesi subjected to searches when she came home from school. Chen and his wife were beaten several times.
Congressman Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican and head of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus and has chaired hearings on Chen’s bogus imprisonment and the extensive forced abortion and sterilization campaign he exposed. He has written a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on his website, calling for diplomatic involvement in Chen’s safety.
We need your help to urge President Obama to do everything in his power to provide asylum for Chen or other diplomatic immunity that will ensure he is safe from harm. Should he be illegally detained by Chinese officials, he could again be falsely imprisoned or put to death for exposing the brutal forced abortion campaigns taking place in China.
ACTIVISM WORKS!!! — KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!! — GOD WILL HAVE CROWNS IN HEAVEN FOR YOUR GOOD WORKS!!!
* [James 2:18 KJV] Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
* [James 2:20 KJV] But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
* [James 2:26 KJV] For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
* [Romans 2:6 KJV] Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
* [Revelation 22:12 KJV] And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
