Beijing Shouwang Church Announcement on December 4th Outdoor Worship Service - Week 35

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

imageDear brothers and sisters:

Peace in the Lord! On December 4, Shouwang had her thirty-fifth Sunday outdoor worship service. In the past week, many believers were detained at home since Saturday. As far as we know, on Sunday morning, at least twenty-two believers were taken away for going to the planned location to join the outdoor service, either at the spot or on their way there. Except three believers who were released on the way, the rest of them were sent to nine local police stations of their respective area. Till midnight, twenty-one believers were released home. The last believer, a sister, who was detained in Xiangheyuan police station of Chaoyang District, was sent home by police around 2:00am in the morning, and then was under the guard of police from Huajiadi police station of her area, and finally got released later.

We have gone through four seasons since we started outdoor worship. A few days ago, Beijing had its first snow, and the temperature drops again. However, many believers still have the passion and the burning heart to worship God no matter under what circumstances. In the last journey of our outdoor worship, we need to pray to our Lord more fervently. May he continue to be “very jealous for” (Zechariah 1:14) his church, and to accomplish his work he started among us, so that we won’t be ashamed because of it. We do not have many outdoor worship services left since we set Christmas as the point for us to end outdoor worship, and we need to continue to look to our Lord and to ask him to open a way for us, so that we can enter the place he gives to us soon. We also pray that he will reveal his will to us, so that we can make the decision on which path the church should take after Christmas according to his will, and that the church can walk under his guidance.

May peace and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the mercy and love of Father God, and the console and guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Advocate, be with each brother and sister of Shouwang Church and all the churches who remember Shouwang Church in prayers, from this time on and forevermore! Amen.
