(Christian Headlines) Forty officials in China’s Taiyuan city raided a house church and detained the worshippers and the pastor, The Christian Post reports.
The man and pastor whose home was raided, An Yankui, told International Christian Concern that this is the second time his home was raided in the last one and a half months.
Five women were detained in addition to the pastor. Further, the officials confiscated the church robes and other books. However, the officials did not detain the pastor’s wife, as they had five children.
The five women were released around midnight but An Yankui is still being detained for an additional 15 days.
