Chinese Authorities sentenced a Christian Preacher to 10 days in administrative detention for “illegal evangelism” yesterday in Hengyang.
The man, Chen Wensheng, was seen sharing his Christian faith on a street in Hengyang, Hunan, before being taken into custody. He also displayed a wooden cross that had “Glory to our Savior” and “Repent and be saved by faith alone” written on it. Chen was doing what he usually does, preaching on the street for passersby. Chen also urged police officers to believe in Jesus.
The cross was confiscated at the police station.
