(Suqian City, Jiangsu province – June 2, 2011) Chinese authorities have administratively detained the deputy chairman of the Chinese House Church Alliance, Pastor Shi Enhao, for 12 days, according to church sources.
Pastor Shi and other lay leaders were taken into police custody on May 31 at around 7 p.m. and detained at the Suqian city detention center in coastal Jiangsu province. Twenty-four hours later, the other detainees were released but Pastor Shi and a woman named Chang Meiling were given a 12-day administrative detention sentence.
On June 1, more than 10 people raided and searched Pastor Shi’s home and took away some books and other written materials.
China Aid Association calls on Christians to keep this in this prayer, and expresses its deep concern that church persecution in China is continuing to deteriorate. May the Lord Jesus Christ protect his church and his flock.
