TAIPEI(ChinaAid)— Liao Qiang and several family members arrived in Taiwan last week after fleeing China.
His attendance at a Sunday church service in Taipei represents the first time Qiang worshiped publicly since authorities shut down Early Rain Covenant Church last December, the Associated Press reports.
Liao and his family hope to reside in Taiwan as they seek asylum in the United States. Questions as to whether or not they will be able to stay in the country long enough to do so remain unanswered, since they only have a 15-day Taiwanese tourist visa. …
Liao says [Chinese] police tried to convince him to denounce the church via written statement.
