Christian in Wuhan Warned for Street Evangelism
11/15/2020 China (International Christian Concern) – A Christian in China’s Wuhan received a warning from the local authorities for “sharing the Gospel on the street.”
According to China Aid, Li Feng, 33, received an administrative punishment decision on November 4, since he used a loudspeaker to talk about Christianity on the street on November 2.
The notice from Wuchang District Public Security Bureau reads that Li is receiving this warning, after the authorities reviewed the CCTV footage, heard from witnesses and Li’s plea, and verification.
It is unclear what Li could be punished for if he decides to continue his street evangelism. Most possible scenario is that he could be detained briefly or fined.
Li’s case is not unique. On August 3, a Christian in China’s Hunan province was sentenced by the authorities to 10 days in administrative detention for “illegal evangelism.”
