Dear brothers and sisters:
Peace in the Lord! On this past Sunday, we held the eleventh outdoor worship service of 2013. It was a cloudy day with haze. As far as we know, including two sisters who were taken to be detained at a hotel separately on Friday and Saturday, at least nineteen believers were taken away from locations near the platform or from home. Some of them were released soon after they were taken away, and the rest of them were detained at three police stations, including Zhongguancun Street police station. They all got released around noon on Sunday.
We have held outdoor service for nearly two years now. Although we don’t know how much longer this journey will take, we believe that what we have experienced in this journey with the permission of God is not in vain. “Peace be to the brothers,[a] and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible.” (Ephesians 6:23-24)
