Deputy Chairman of Chinese House Church Alliance Disappears After Release from Detention

China Aid Association
(Suqian City, Jiangsu – June 15, 2011) ChinaAid has just learned that the deputy chairman of the Chinese House Church Alliance, Pastor Shi Enhao, has disappeared into police custody after being released from a 12-day administrative detention sentence.
Pastor Shi was taken by police in Suqian city, in coastal Jiangsu province, on May 31 and was administratively detained at the Suqian city detention center for 12 days. He was released on June 12, but before he was even allowed to return home, police immediately took him away to an unknown location.
Please see our June 2 report:

According to a report by the U.S. government-funded Radio Free Asia, Pastor Shi was previously apprehended on March 4 by Suqian city Domestic Security Protection officers and Religious Affairs Bureau officials who rushed to the city of Nanyang where he was preaching, took him back to Suqian city and held him in the Suqian detention center, where he was beaten.
The Radio Free Asia report in Chinese is here:
ChinaAid strongly condemns the prolonged and continuous persecution of Pastor Shi by the Suqian city authorities. The support shown by the Beijing authorities of the persecution of Shouwang Church without doubt will lead to similar persecution of house churches all over China by local governments, and such persecution will become increasingly unrestrained.
ChinaAid founder and president Pastor Bob Fu calls on China’s churches and Christians to be unified and to stand firm in the midst of the winds and waves of this year’s persecution. Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith, trust in God’s word and the truth of the Holy Spirit to hold fast to your faith.
Hebrews 10:32-36 in the Bible teaches us:
32: Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering.
33: Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated.
34: You sympathized with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.
35: So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36: You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
