Wife of Early Rain Pastor Freed After Six Months in Jail

[139] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Jiang Rong.

Jiang Rong, the wife of Early Rain Covenant Church Pastor Wang Yi, was released on bail after six months in jail. Jiang Rong and her husband were arrested on Dec. 9, 2018, during a raid on their unregistered church of approximately 800 members. More than 150 church members were arrested that week, and all but a few key leaders and elders were soon released. Jiang was held in a secretive detention center called “residential surveillance at a designated location.” According to China Aid Association, “inmates held in this manner are … often subjected to torture.” Jiang and another Christian affiliated with the church, Li Xiaofeng, were released on bail on June 12, 2019.
