Hundreds of Crosses Removed

In the early morning of July 7th, more than a hundred people arrived at the Aodi Christian Church and Yinchang Christian Church in Wenzhou with cranes and removed crosses from atop the church buildings. Door locks were also broken and some church property was destroyed.

When church members tried to intervene, they were physically assaulted, resulting in several injuries. The elderly among them were not exempt from mistreatment. An elderly man in his 80s was disrespectfully pushed to the ground.

In the state of Anhui, crosses were removed from at least 250 churches during the first four months of 2020 alone. Similar action is being taken against symbols of other religions as well.

The persecution Christians are currently facing in China has been described as the most intense in decades.

Please continue to lift up China’s Christians in your prayers, asking God to minister His grace, healing, spiritual encouragement and renewed hope in the midst of the many restrictions and the resulting harm it has caused to many.

Pray that God will work in the lives of those who are persecuting Christians. Pray that they too will become keenly aware of the Lord’s presence and recognise His sovereignty. Pray that the continued outreach of churches throughout the country will be mightily used to bring multitudes from all walks of life to a saving faith in Christ.
