The Communist Party is becoming more controlling in China and the government has increased citizen surveillance. In an increasing number of cases, Bibles have been confiscated, churches raided, and pastors fined and arrested. Some missionaries have even been kicked out of the country. The growing influence of materialism and consumerism has also been identified as a threat to the Church in China.
Pray: That religious restrictions don’t cause the Church to shrink back but instead grow in numbers and in boldness.
