CHENGDU, China — Chinese Communist Party officials placed a Chinese minister and his family under house arrest June 4, reportedly because of their faith, according to China Aid.
Wu Wuqing, minister of Early Rain Covenant Church, his wife, Xiong Meifang, and their children have been locked in their condo in Chengdu, and CCP authorities constantly monitor the only passageway.
Christians living nearby have left water and food items at the condo door.
The CCP’s tactics to get the couple to surrender their faith have, in the past, included such actions as shutting off utilities, puncturing car tires and summoning them for interrogations.
China is No. 17 on Open Doors’ 2021 World Watch List of places most difficult to be a Christian.
