Christian Couple Detained for Sharing Their Faith

[203] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Liang and Li.

Pastor Liang Ziliang and several other church members in Heshan, Guangdong, were distributing Christian brochures and carrying anti-abortion banners in a local park when police began to photograph them. That night, Liang and his wife, Li Yinxiu, were called to the police station and detained on arrival. Following their arrest, police searched their home without a warrant. Their family later received two criminal detention notices accusing Liang and Li of violating Article 80 of China’s criminal law and organizing and supporting illegal gatherings. They are currently being held at the Heshan Municipal Detention Center. Members of the couple’s house church are very concerned about their arrests. Pray that Liang and Li will grow stronger in faith and feel God’s presence in jail. Pray that they will be released soon and be able to continue sharing the gospel and God’s love for the unborn. Pray that their house church members will remain committed to the gospel despite their anxiety.
