HENAN — On May 5, sixteen major house church leaders from different provinces were detained while meeting for prayer and Bible study.They were held at a detention center in Luoyang city. ChinaAid urged the international community to call on the authorities to release the pastors, including Pastor Li Fuxing from Shandong and Pastor Zhang “Peter” Bide. Because of international pressure, on May 21 all the house church leaders were released!
ChinaAid thanks those who called and voiced their concern over the plight of the imprisoned house church leaders of Henan. We rejoice at their release, and encourage Christians worldwide to continue to pray for continued light and victory in the battle for religious rights in China.
