(Jiangsu - Feb. 24) At 2 p.m. on Feb 24, a house church gathering in Liu Jinliang’s home in the town of Xihe, Huaian city, was raided by officials of the Domestic Security Protection Squad (DSPS) and the Three Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM) committee. Brother Liu and the other Christians were harassed and threatened in the raid, which lasted over two hours.

The officials leading the raid included Pan (head of the Huaian city DSPS), Chen Yuejin (head of the Chuzhou district DSPS), and Zhang Guoqiang (vice chairman of Chuzhou district’s TSPM committee). One of Chen’s lower-rank officials named He was also involved in the raid.
ChinaAid urge the Chinese government to put a stop to these attacks against the religious freedom of its citizens. We encourage concerned individuals worldwide to pray for both the Christians and the officials involved in this raid.
