On Friday we had the blessing to share with you that the Chinese who were taken into custody on April 10th earlier this month, were released. We shared this report from CBN News.
Unfortunately, over the weekend Fox News reported that at least two pastors were detained. This is just a reminder that we all need to keep our Chinese family in Christ in prayers daily. Here's more from Fox News...
BEIJING -- At least two pastors from an underground Beijing church were in police custody and numerous other leaders remained under house arrest Sunday as part of a crackdown on the unregistered Shouwang congregation, a U.S.-based rights group said.
The two pastors were taken from their homes by Beijing Public Security Bureau officers Saturday night, Bob Fu, president of the China Aid Association, a Christian rights group, said in an email.
Fu said all other Shouwang leaders were under house arrest, though he didn't give an exact number. Some church members have lost their homes or jobs amid an official campaign to shut down the church, he said.
