 2/27/2012 China (ChinaAid) More Than Thirty Christians In China Detained and Fined-

Local authorities in far western China raided a house church Bible study group earlier this month and detained more than thirty Christians, four of whom remain in custody, and fined each person 5000 yuan (US$795). The Feb. 16 raid occurred at about 2 p.m. in Wusu, near the city of Kuitun, in the far western region of Xinjiang, as more than 30 house church staff were having a Bible study with some Christians visiting from coastal Shandong province. By Feb. 26, approximately 30 Christians had been released in batches, but each was forced to pay a 5000 yuan fine. Four people remain in detention, and the police have refused to produce any documentation that proper legal procedures had been followed.

Full Story:

Pray that the remaining prisoners are released.
Pray that the Chinese government stops these illegal raids.
Pray that the house church is strengthened through this experience
