On July 12, 2019, a demolition crew hired by local authorities surrounded a house church in Zhengzhou, Henan province, at 11:30 p.m. During a scuffle with the work crew, a Christian man who was at the house church with his wife was severely beaten, suffering three severed tendons in his wrist. He was later taken to a hospital unconscious. Church members were able to rescue only a few pieces of furniture before the church was demolished. Pray that members of this house church will remain strong, and pray for the recovery of the man who was injured.
