Spouses of Imprisoned Church Members Arrested

[211] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Early Rain Covenant Church Members.

The crackdown on the Chengdu-based Early Rain Covenant Church continues. In February, relatives of imprisoned church members gathered in front of the German consulate in Chengdu, seeking diplomatic aid. The three wives and one husband of currently imprisoned church members smiled and raised their Bibles, hoping German diplomats would help them obtain information on their imprisoned spouses. Instead, police arrested the four, along with a baby. The Christians were detained for several days before being released. No information has been released on the church members who have been in prison since Dec. 9, 2018. Pray for the wisdom of Early Rain church members during this time.
