Christian Leaders Imprisoned in China

BosNewsLife is reporting that two prominent house church leaders are still being detained after police raided their worship service on 20 December.

The 71-year-old Tian, affectionately known by locals as “Uncle Jin” for his missionary work, was escorted by authorities from Jiuquan Detention Center to the Fangcheng County Public Security Bureau of Henan, his head shaved and donning prison garb, witnesses said. Su’s whereabouts were not immediately clear Wednesday, January 9.

Retired and unmarried, Tian “has devoted the past 20 years of his life to full-time missionary work in China,” since becoming a Christian in 1977, CAA told BosNewsLife. “He founded the management team of Daqing Church [in] Heilongjiang province and in July of 1994 was elected as one of seven leaders of the Fangcheng house church in his home county.”
