Dai Zhichao and his family.
On the morning of Nov. 1, government authorities detained Dai Zhichao along with his wife and their two sons.
Dai, a practicing preacher of Early Rain Covenant Church and the leader of a small group, was about to take his family to another province for a vacation. Continuously persecuted over the past year, Dai has been summoned, detained and beaten multiple times by authorities in an effort to prevent him from participating in any activities related to the Early Rain Covenant Church. Authorities have also monitored him, locked his home and shut off his electricity. His family planned the vacation as a way to break up the constant harassment. Pray for Dai, his wife and their two boys to have peace as they continue to endure persecution. Pray for them to remain joyful in the Lord and for them to find the peace that only Jesus Christ can provide.
