A Christian family from Early Rain Church in China that fled to safety in Taiwan is speaking out for the first time about the terrifying crackdown against Christians in the communist nation.

According to a striking report from the Associated Press, 49-year-old Liao Qiang and his 23-year-old daughter said they were living under 24/7 surveillance after their church was deemed not to be sanctioned by the government.

From the AP report:

Liao and Ren's account is the first detailing what has happened since the detentions began at the Early Rain Covenant Church. It shows the determination of the Chinese government—and the lengths it has gone—to eradicate a congregation that has long been a thorn in its side.

Early Rain made headlines thanks to pastor Wang Yi, who defiantly remained steadfast in his faith despite being detained last year. Yi particularly annoyed the communist powers that be by doing things such as holding annual prayer services to remind people about Tiennamen Square, despite the governments best efforts to effectively remove that event from existence.
