Yunnan authorities attempt to stop house church service; pastor summoned regarding 20-plus university students in attendance

(Pu’er, Yunnan–May 31, 2015) Officers from the religious affairs bureau, public security bureau and United Front Work department in China’s southwestern Yunnan province attempted to stop a church service at Meng’En House Church today.

Despite authorities efforts, the church’s pastor, Zhu Hewen, continued to lead the worship service until all sermons and prayers concluded.  Zhu was ordered to report to the Pu’er Religious Affairs Bureau tomorrow regarding the 20-plus university students in attendance at the worship service. Zhu will be forced to submit the students’ names because authorities forbid them to believe in God, China Aid’s source said.

China Aid reports on cases like these in order to expose the abuses encountered by Christians and adherents of other religions at the hands of government officials.
