Two Pastors Arrested During Seminary Class

[166] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Two Arrested Pastors.

Chinese officials in eastern Jiangsu province interrupted a seminary class on May 28 and arrested two pastors without showing a warrant. Police and agents from the local religious affairs bureau also threatened to arrest the teacher and more than 20 students, who later went to the police station demanding to know why the pastors were arrested. The two pastors were released later that day. Pray that these pastors will continue to minister to their congregations and share the gospel in their communities. Pray that their house churches will grow despite persecution from government officials. And pray that many will be drawn to Christ after hearing the gospel and experiencing the love of the body of Christ.
