Harassment continues for Early Rain Church members

It’s been more than a year since several pastors and about 100 members of Early Rain Church were first arrested and the church shut down.

Since then, Senior Pastor Wang Yi was sentenced to 9 years jail, his wife and child put under house arrest and Elder Qin De Fu sentenced to 4 years imprisonment.

However, the harassment and threats continue for other members of the church. Four adopted children of church members, Pei Wenju & Jing Jianan were forcefully removed & placed in other homes instead.

Lord we pray for strength and courage for these precious brothers and sisters, that they will be able to withstand the intense persecution and still remain strong in their faith in Christ.

Mother of five told to stop going to church or leave the house

Mrs. Khoun came to faith in Christ last year but her husband opposes her Christian faith. He started harassing and beating her and recently gave her an ultimatum to either stop going to church or leave the house. She chose to keep her faith and left her home, taking two of their five children with her. Her husband is now fighting to get the children back.

Pray for Mrs Khoun’s husband. Pray that God will remove his heart of stone and give him a heart of flesh that will embrace Christ and receive salvation. Pray that Mrs Khoun will not have to be separated from her children.

Valued Christian employee loses job because he refuses to leave his Christian faith

Asif was a valued supervisor in a garment factory who used to lead his co-workers in prayer before work each morning. The factory owner tried to stop the prayers and even brought in a religious leader of another faith to try and persuade Asif to abandon his Christian faith.

Asif refused to give in even when the factory owner threatened to fire him. He was eventually fired and is currently in hiding after receiving death threats.

Pray for the safety of Asif and his family. Pray that he will be able to find another job soon and all his needs will be provided for. Pray also that whenever Asif shares the gospel, many will receive salvation.

New Believer persecuted over rumours of Christians being paid to convert

Aarav became a Christian after he was healed from a long time illness when a local Pastor prayed for him. A group of about 50 extremists disrupted a meeting between Aarav and the pastor and the pastor’s family at Aarav’s home. The matter was subsequently resolved but the local news media reported false allegations of Christians being paid to convert. As a result of those rumors, Aarav and his family have been evicted from their home and Aarav’s long-time client decided to stop doing business with him.

Lord we pray that the truth of the matter will surface and vindicate Aarav and his family.

We pray that for every client he loses, God will provide two more new clients and that all the needs of Aarav and his family, financial, emotional, spiritual, social, will be met.

Father, we pray that Aarav will continue to grow spiritually with the support of other believers around him.
