Nangang Church destroyed one year ago 
About a year ago on January 11th, 2023, Communist officials forcibly destroyed Nangang Church during the night as police confronted, harassed, beat, and arrested Christians! Officials destroyed the church to take the 8-acre property to construct commercial buildings.

Please keep praying for this church and if the Lord leads, partner with them so they can keep renting space for worship and Sunday School without a permanent building.

Pray for all Nangang Church members and for their persecutors. 

Deacon Jia released from detention 
This week, ChinaAid reported on the release of Deacon Jia Xuewei from a 15-day administrative detention on December 22nd, 2023. Deacon Jia was detained for renting a hotel conference room for a church service. 

Pray for Deacon Jia, his family, church, and his persecutors.   

Schools ban Christmas across China 
This week, ChinaAid reported on the vast efforts among schools within China to ban Christmas celebrations in December 2023. Officials banned Christmas card sales, Christmas decorations, and other related items, as detailed in our article about the crackdown.

Pray for all Chinese Christians and their persecutors.
