(Chengdu, Sichuan—Sept. 21, 2019) Nearly 10 months after authorities in China’s Sichuan province arrested around 100 members of Early Rain Covenant Church in an overnight sting on Dec. 9, officials still harass members of the church, monitoring them daily.

Today, ChinaAid President and Founder Bob Fu wrote on Facebook, “Multiple CCP [Chinese Communist Party] agents monitor every believer 24/7 and even attempted 2 [sic] sleep at believers’ homes.”

Fu claimed that the government’s intent is to keep the Christians from worshipping together, and he ended his post with a quote from the church’s pastor, Wang Yi, who is currently imprisoned: “CCP may lead everything, but can never lead [the] Church; CCP may kill my body but can never kill my soul; CCP can prosper for a moment but can never exist forever.”

Wang was one of the estimated 100 members of the church who were taken into custody on the night of Dec. 9, and he remains incommunicado in prison.
