(Wenzhou, Zhejiang—July, 23 2015) Friends and family members of a detained pastor in China’s coastal Zhejiang province visited him in prison last month as his August release date approaches.

Pastor Huang Yizi, of Pingyang County, Wenzhou’s Fengwo Church, was detained on Aug. 3, 2014, following his protest of the forced removal of Pingyang County’s Salvation Church’s cross on July 21, 2014, for “gathering a crowd to disrupt public order.” He was sentenced to one year in prison on March 24, 2015.

Huang’s family members and members of his church and other Pingyang County churches came to the detention center on June 25 to visit him before his release on Aug. 2, 2015. Thirteen were allowed to visit the pastor.

“He is good, writing a lot of poems,” one church member said. “He also has to work. The only trouble is having changed cells many times recently.”
