Well Known Chinese Preacher Detained for Second Time after Preaching in Park

I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will give him the boldness and the strength to endure this persecution that he is facing.

12/21/2012 China (ChinaAid) - A well-known preacher was detained for the second time this month, along with eight other house church Christians, when they were evangelizing in a park in the southern boomtown of Shenzhen, and the preacher is now being held for 13 days under administrative detention.

Cao Nan, from the Shenzhen house church, was evangelizing and witnessing for Christ in Lychee Park on Dec. 15 when he was taken into custody by a police officer and his assistant on the grounds of engaging in Qigong activities.

Later, more than 20 police officers arrived in two sweeps and hauled seven other Christians to the police station. At the police station, all eight of them cooperated with the police through the booking process. They were not released until 11 p.m. However, Cao was transferred to the city's detention center, where he will be held for 13 days of administrative detention for engaging in Qigong activities. He is due for release on Dec. 28. This is the second time this month that Cao has been detained for evangelizing(Source).
