It's actually an e-mail message I received, recently. So , here it is (I copied/pasted it):
In a disturbing move, Pastor John Cao's wrongful conviction has been upheld.
Without even holding a hearing, an appeals court in China recently upheld the wrongful conviction and sentence of 7 years in prison for the Christian Pastor. Pastor Cao had been arrested and convicted while conducting humanitarian work and ministering to the people of China and Burma (Myanmar).
Even though it was a public announcement, the Court did not allow any of Pastor Cao's students and friends or or even U.S. Consulate staff to sit in the courtroom. Now Pastor Cao has been transferred to an unknown prison.
We've been aggressively fighting to bring Pastor Cao home to his wife Jamie and their two sons. In less than a week, we will, again, be submitting legal documents to the U.N. Human Rights Council urging action to secure the release of Pastor Cao.
Please pray for Pastor Cao and his family. He's suffered nearly two and a half years of wrongful imprisonment for his faith. At the ACLJ, with your help, we'll continue working to bring Pastor Cao home safely to Jamie and their sons here in America.

What has been done to Pastor Cao, has been truly wicked.
Now, he's been treated even worse. Not just because he hasn't been released to return home to his family. But also because Pastor Cao has been transferred to an unknown prison... as was stated in the e-mail message.
After all, even if he wasn't released, his family could have taken a trip to see him. But, now... that would be impossible. :'( So sad.
More being done to heartbreak his family... and him.
Wickedness is NOT good.
Thinking about that, made me think of Proverbs 10:2, "Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.".
Amen! Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.
I paise God for letting us know that all who are doing this wickedness, will profit nothing.
Plus, I praise God that righteousness delivers people from death.
Could Pastor Cao die?
Hopefully not yet, here on earth. However, if his life on earth ends, he won't fully die.
Because Pastor Cao is a Christian who has gained salvation and everlasting life, because he trusts in/believes upon our Lord Jesus Christ.
Even so, please click on the link to sign the petition... if you live in USA. By doing that, Pastor Cao may be released.
Also, please join me in prayer that Pastor Cao will quickly be released and available to go home to his family.
If you do pray, I thank you... and I believe God will bless you.
Thank You, Lord!
