FUZHOU, Fujian (China Aid) — A church in the capital of China’s southeastern Fujian province has been harassed relentlessly by authorities over the past few months.
Yongfu Church, located in Fuzhou, has been raided eight times in the past two months. When the church refused to make modifications to their building in order to fit the Communist Party’s agenda, 40-50 city management officers went to a Christian’s home and threatened those there.
He asked how the evil of cracking down on Christianity could be ignored by the central government. His father was taken to the police station, even though he had been through two bypass heart surgeries and a cerebral hemorrhage.
“Our lives and property have both been threatened and jeopardized,” his son said. “ … Please pass the word along and pray for us. I hope this country will get better and better.”
