Pastor Yang Xibo and his wife, Wang Xiaofei, have been fined $55,100 USD for pastoring the Xunsiding Church. Xunsiding is a small house church of dedicated believers located in the port city of Xiamen.
Yang and and his wife took the extraordinary step and announced on social media that they would not pay the fines and were willing to endure the persecution that China had ready for them. Yang notes that he has no house or property for the government to seize, and is ready to lay down in his life in sacrifice.
The following papers were issued by the authorities in Xiamen regarding Pastor Yang and his wife and were found on Facebook.
