Falun Gong practitioners were invited by the Vision Team of University Christian Church in San Diego to inform the members about the torture and abuses used to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. They focused extra attention on the crime of live organ harvesting committed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It is hoped that those in attendance will inform churches in their districts and nationwide about this crime, and that ultimately the case will be submitted to the World Council of Churches (WCC) so as to help stop the persecution.

Jack Johnston is member of the board of University Christian Church. He once saw an exhibit held by practitioners in Balboa Park exposing the CCP's persecution and harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. He had a conversation with the practitioners. Mr. Johnston was shocked after learning about the situation, and immediately signed the petition to be presented to President Bush and the US Congress asking for a Congressional Hearing to investigate. He took several brochures saying that he would discuss the incident with other members of the church council. He said that the church would stand forward to oppose social injustice and crimes against humanity.
Shortly afterward, two practitioners were invited to make a presentation to the church council on May 16th. The council members wanted to learn more about Falun Dafa and the cause of the persecution. They also inquired about links to truth-clarifying materials, articles and websites, so that they could obtain more information and spread to other church organisations.
A practitioner explained to the church council that she had begun to practise Falun Gong two years ago. Only a few months later, her health was greatly improved. She said that Falun Gong is a good practice benefiting both mind and body. This practitioner was born in post-war Germany. The brutality of the Nazis in Germany made her have a deep sense of mission, to speak out against the crimes that the CCP has committed against Falun Gong practitioners.
The members of the council were shocked at the brutality of the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners. They had invited the practitioners to make a ten-minute speech, but it turned out to a 30-minute speech. They sincerely thanked the practitioners and expressed that they will do their utmost to help put an end to this evil.
