Persecution Escalates Against Jiangsu’s Suqian House Church, 3 Elders Detained

China Aid Association
(Suqian city, Jiangsu – Aug. 14, 2011) Official persecution against the Suqian house church in coastal Jiangsu province escalated Saturday with the administrative detention of three of the church’s elders, ChinaAid has learned.
The five-day detention sentences for the three elders follows the sentencing last month of the church’s pastor, Pastor Shi Enhao, to a two-year re-education-through-labor sentence. Furthermore, Pastor Shi’s son Shi Yongyang, his daughter Shi Yumei and her husband Zhang Quansheng are all at risk of being detained as well.
Pastor Shi is also the deputy chairman of the Chinese House Church Alliance.
ChinaAid calls on churches everywhere to pray urgently for the Suqian house church. Pray that the persecuted believers will have an intimate experience of God’s comfort and protection, and that the persecutors will gain nothing from their actions. Persecution can only grow and strengthen the church!
