House Church Receives Large Fine

[204] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Hanzhuang Church.

Shi Xinping, leader of a house church in Zongdian, Henan Province, was fined 50,000 yuan, or about $7,500, by the regional religious affairs committee for organizing illegal activities without reporting them to the department of religious affairs. His church, the Hanzhuang Village house church, received three government notices in one week. The first warned of possible penalties, the second warned of a ban on the church and the third threatened more penalties. Members of the 200-member church, which has been in existence for more than 10 years, had refused to join the state-sanctioned Three-Self Church. A church member said the large fine will be a hardship for the church. Pray that they will deal wisely with authorities.
