Pastor Wang's Attorney Denied Visiting Privileges

[262] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Pastor Wang.

The Early Rain Covenant Church has faced ongoing persecution in the past year, including the arrest of one of its pastors, Wang Yi. While many in the congregation have been arrested and then released the following day, Pastor Wang and 19 others continue to be held in secret jail cells. When Pastor Wang’s attorney, Zhang Peihong, tried to find his client earlier this month, he was told to wait 48 hours for a response from the Chengdu Prison. While waiting, the attorney met with Pastor Wang’s mother in a park and prayed with her before leaving. He was then arrested and detained for six hours on charges of “participating in religious activities in a public space.” Zhang returned to the Chengdu Prison after the prescribed 48 hours but was told that he could not meet with his client. He said that although authorities would not confirm his suspicion, he is confident that Pastor Wang is being held in Chengdu. Continue to pray for Pastor Wang and other members of the Early Rain Covenant Church. It is believed that the 20 church members in criminal detention may soon face formal charges.
