The Korean pastor surnamed Hu was right in the midst of his sermon at 2 p.m. on Dec. 23 to the Zhenguang (True Light) House Church, in the Xiangshan (Fragrant Hills) New Housing Development, in Shanghai's Pudong New Area, when the officials from the Public Security Bureau, Religious Affairs Bureau and local police station grabbed him and took him into custody and dispersed the meeting.

Hu was held for two hours and not released until 4 p.m.  He was told he would be expelled from China.

ChinaAid calls on Christians worldwide to pray for Brother Hu.
