Story number 1 for 18 Dec 2000

By December 18, 2000

Headlining today’s news, mission and relief agencies are still reacting to last week’s destruction of churches in southeastern China. According to reports the government destroyed as many as 450 unauthorized religious buildings. International Aid’s Milton Amayun is concerned. “A lot of people have already gone underground or are missing. There’s also a lot of damaged property. This kind of intimidation might cause people who are not very strong in their faith to renounce their Christianity.” So far, though, it’s done the opposite. I-A, an evangelical relief and development agency, supports all types of work there. Amayun explains. “We support tentmakers in many parts of China. We have been supporting the work of evangelists and pastors. We are supporting missionaries.”
