(Xiamen, Fujian—June 10, 2020) Authorities in China’s Fujian province destroyed more than a dozen Christian homes on June 11 Beijing Standard Time.

At around 9:00 a.m., more than 100 officials from various government departments arrived at the homes of Xingguang Church members. They moved furniture from the homes into the hallway. They yelled, “What are you recording!” at a person filming the incident and took the person’s phone away.

The authorities then proceeded to destroy property, as portrayed in the video below. In all, more than 12 homes were ruined, and all had served as worship places for the church. 

Wang Xiaofei, the wife of Xingguang Church’s pastor, asked for prayer from her friends on the social media platform WeChat. 
This is the second wave of massive persecution against Christians from Xingguang Church following the outbreak of the coronavirus. On May 3, more than 100 law enforcement personnel raided a worship service held by Xingguang Church and beat Christians and onlookers, injuring some. They also seized some Christians.
