During this time, Christians of ERCC who live nearby visited Minister Wu’s home one after another, dropping off water, vegetables, fruits, and food for them in front of their door. For a few days, CCP agents monitoring Minister Wu’s condo unlocked the chain and let visiting Brothers and Sisters from the Church enter in. But then again, starting on July 08, CCP authorities refused to permit anyone to visit Minister Wu. When one Sister of the church traveled with her children to Minister Wu’s home, officers kept them away from the chained fire door. When questioned, monitors reported that their superior issued a new order—they now prohibited anyone from visiting Minister Wu or entering his condo. Later, as CCP officials barred another Sister and her children from entering Minister Wu’s condo, she visited with him and his wife over the chain shackling the door.
Ms. Xiong told Church Brothers and Sisters, “Our Heavenly Father locked the door, and He will unlock it when the time comes. We will pray for the police and CCP authorities every day. May the Lord gain their souls.”
CCP officials have continually persecuted Minister Wu and his family because they insist on serving the Church. As police have aimed to pressure Minister Wu and his wife into surrendering their faith, they used various approaches including shutting off their water, electricity, and gas. At one point, they also punctured Minister Wu’s car tires. They have frequently summoned him to their station for interrogations. Currently, as government officials attempt to force Minister Wu out of his rented condo as well as away from Chengdu, they increasingly restrict his and his family’s freedom. This persecution will not likely end until July 1—the 100th anniversary of the CCP.
At 8:10 pm on June 08, Early Rain Covenant Church again published a prayer request:
Brothers and Sisters, please continue to lift Minister Wu and his family in prayer.Pray that the Lord helps Minister Wu and his family stay in the city like a nail in wood.Their gentleness and kindness testify to the grand power of the gospel. Their steadfastness testifies to the justice and holiness of Christ.May the Lord strengthen them and protect them from the Evil One’s harm.
