Authorities in China’s Fujian province destroyed more than a dozen Christian homes on 11 June.
At around 9am, more than 100 officials from various government departments arrived at the homes of Xingguang Church members. They moved furniture from the homes into the hallway. They yelled, “What are you recording!” at a person filming the incident and took the person’s phone away.
The authorities then proceeded to destroy property. In all, more than 12 homes were ruined, all had served as worship places for the church.
Wang Xiaofei, the wife of Xingguang Church’s pastor, asked for prayer from her friends on the social media platform WeChat.
This is the second wave of persecution against Christians from Xingguang Church since the outbreak of the coronavirus. On 3 May, more than 100 law enforcement personnel raided a worship service held by Xingguang Church and beat Christians and onlookers, injuring some. They also seized some Christians.
