(Worthy News) - House churches across China continue to be harassed by the government during their activities. On August 11, a house church in Yunnan province was raided by the authorities during service. Churchgoers’ cell phones were confiscated and names of members recorded, before they were asked to sign a statement promising that they would never come to this church again.
A Christian who was present told China Aid that there were around 100 people in attendance when she joined the service. Not long after the service was over, dozens of people suddenly raided the church, claiming to be government staff who were implementing the law. They asked that no one leaves and their cell phones had to be turned off, before the officials took them away. [ Source: Int'l Christian Concern (Read More...) ]
