Officials Target Xingguang Church in Fujian

[186] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Xingguang church members.

On June 11, authorities in China’s Fujian province destroyed more than a dozen Christian homes that had been used as worship spaces by members of the Xingguang Church. At 9 a.m., more than 100 officials from various government departments arrived at the Christians’ homes, dragged furniture from the homes into the hallways and proceeded to destroy the furniture while preventing the Christians from using cellphones to take video of the destruction. The church was initially shut down in a May 3 raid in which police entered a residence by force and beat church members. During that raid, neighbors took video of police officers shouting at and beating the Christians. Please pray for members of the Xingguang Church and for all Chinese Christians.
