Authorities Offer Cash Rewards for Information on Christian Activity

[234] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Christians in Guangzhou.

One Chinese city is now offering to pay for information on anyone involved in “illegal religious activities.” Authorities in Guangzhou have offered rewards equaling as much as $1,500 to those reporting the activities. The largest rewards are paid for information leading to the arrest of foreign religious leaders, while smaller amounts will be paid for tips leading to the closure of a foreign religious group. One Christian told the China Aid Association that the announcement prompted his group to stop distributing Christian leaflets in public. Pray for Christians in Guangzhou as the government continues its crackdown on religious institutions that do not submit to the Communist Party.
