(Shiyan, Hubei—Feb. 4, 2014) The Chinese Christian Faith and Law training camp held its 14th training session on Sunday at Danjiang Fellowship, a house church in China’s central Hubei province, where more than 80 people participated.

Though the training took place in the midst of the Chinese New Year celebration, the group, which consisted of church leaders, staff and members, continued to study.
The group said that such an opportunity to study law and religion is rare. They said they felt they should use the holiday to receive the training, for which they were grateful. The group also said they are determined to apply the common sense laws they have learned to the churches they serve.

The church, which was founded in the 1980s, has been harassed many times. Many church members have been taken into custody, had their homes searched and their money and property confiscated.
