China continues to persecute Christians in unregistered churches.  One example occurred early on a Sunday morning in September when 400 police raided the Linfeng Church in Shanxi province.  More than 30 believers were injured, and the local emergency room was ordered not to treat them.  All Bibles and cell phones were confiscated. 

 

Christian bookstore owner, Shi Weihan, continues to suffer physically while serving a three-year prison term for Christ’s sake.   Yet God is using persecution to grow His Church in China!  Pray that many more will come to Christ from the testimonies of these suffering believers.
