Early Rain Pastor Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison as Harassment Continues

More than a year after police arrested 100 believers and shut down their church, the members of Early Rain Covenant Church continue to face harassment and threats. In late December, Senior Pastor Wang Yi was sentenced to nine years in prison, while his wife and child remain under house arrest. Elder Qin Defu, another Early Rain leader, is serving a four-year prison sentence, and authorities took four adopted children away from church members Pei Wenju and Jing Jianan and placed the children in other homes. Continue to pray for members of Early Rain Covenant Church, especially those in prison.
