In July 1958, the PRC government took steps to make Wenzhou the nation’s first “religion-free” zone, and 70-year-old Pastor Yang Zuoyin (杨作新) found himself in the center of the controversy. The government required Christians in Wenzhou’s Pingyang County to implement the “Three Offerings and One Withdrawal”, namely give up church buildings, give up Bibles, give up all religious materials, and withdraw from church life.” Pastor Yang played a key role in rallying Christians to continue fellowship during this campaign and the subsequent Cultural Revolution. Wenzhou emerged as the “Jerusalem of China” and is a place known of the zeal of her Christians. Pray for Wenzhou Christians not to forsake their first love for Christ. Revelation 2:4
