Police Break Up Large Evangelical Meeting, Detain Taiwanese Preacher



Friday, January 14, 2011

China Aid Association
(Cangshan County, China – Jan. 14, 2011) A large evangelical meeting in coastal Shandong province was broken up by police last week and a famous preacher visiting from the island province of Taiwan was detained, ChinaAid has learned.
On the morning of Jan. 6 or 7, more than 1000 people turned out for the evangelical event in Cangshan County that was being held at a church building built by a local Christian named Zhao Lin to hear famed Taiwanese evangelist Lu Daihao. But in the afternoon, local officers of the Public Security Bureau burst into the church and forced an end to the meeting. They detained an unspecified number of believers, including the visiting preacher.
No further details were available.
Pastor Lu had a similar experience in the fall of 2010 when he was providing training to house churches in the Linzi district of Shandong’s city of Zibo. On Sept. 7, he was surrounded by more than 100 local police officers who detained him, but then released him the same day.
