CHENGDU — A member of China’s Early Rain Covenant Church, who is among the more than 100 congregants who have been detained this month surrounding their participation with an unregistered church, says that the Lord used his time in holding as others in the detention center had great interest in hearing about the gospel.

“[Even though] there were only 11 beds and 31 people living there, everyone there eagerly wanted to hear the gospel,” reads a testimony posted to the Pray for Early Rain Covenant Church Facebook page.

The name of the member was not provided, only the notation that he had been detained for five days.

“Everyone asked me to give them my phone number. Some of them were drug dealers. They said they would contact me as soon as they got out and that they would take their wives to church,” the testimony outlines. “They all called me professor and loved listening to me talk about the gospel. … As long as someone was willing to speak, everyone else loved to listen.”
