CCD Monthly                                                                  June 2022


Greetings! We are China Christian Daily, the first comprehensive English Christian news website about the church in China. Thank you for your sincere love, prayer for and contributions to the Chinese church.

Every year June 26 is the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. This month we focus on the status quo and stories of gospel-centered drug rehabilitation institutions in China. More than 30 Christian-based drug rehabilitation organizations have been established in Greater China. Different from general drug rehabilitation centers, they treat drug addiction as a spiritual issue that the root cause of drug addiction is treated through the Christian faith. Their daily program is dominated by religious activities, and their treatment outcome is better than traditional rehabilitation centers. Meanwhile, overseas Chinese pastors also found similar institutions in southeastern Asia. 

You can also read trending news as well as articles about a story of an American teacher who humbly served his students in China, a Christian scholar on the Russian-Ukrainian war, and testimonies.
