Dear Friends in Christ,
Please read the short communique concerning our persecuted brethren in China. these dear and steadfast saints are only a small group in a nation that is attempting to wipe out our faith across their nation. Please pray for these and all our Chinese brethren who face tribulation we do not yet know- Brother Mike
Mar. 28, 2019 | ChinaHouse Church Members Face Ongoing Persecution
Beleaguered members of the Early Rain Covenant Church have continued to experience persecution since their church was closed and more than 100 members arrested in December 2018. While most of those arrested have been released, several key leaders remain in prison, including Pastor Wang Yi. And now the persecution has expanded to church members’ workplaces and homes. Xu Miaozhuang, wife of one of the church’s imprisoned elders, was evicted from her home in February along with her four children. Another church member, Pan Fei, was fired from his job and forced to sign a resignation form. On the letter of resignation, Fei wrote, “For believing in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God and Savior of mankind, my employment with Yonghui Superstore has been terminated.” Pray for Pastor Wang Yi, Miaozhuang, Fei and the other Early Rain members affected by ongoing persecution.
