Two churches in Shanxi and Liaoning each baptized 30 seekers on December 5, the second Sunday in Advent. 

Since August, Yaodu District Church in Linfen, Shanxi, implemented the measure of a “double suspension”, which refers to suspending the opening of places of worship and of collective religious gatherings altogether. In the thanksgiving service on December 5 for the reopening of the church, Rev. Geng Fuqiin preached a sermon titled Come on, Give Thanks to God, followed by baptisms for 30 seekers and a communion service, according to Linfen TSPM.

On the same day, 30 catechumens were also baptized in Lvhua Street Church in Anshan, Liaoning.

In the morning, Rev. Yuanming, president of Anshan CC, dressed in a holy robe, gave a sermon with the title Be Baptized into Jesus Christ. After a communion service, she baptized 26 seekers. In the evening, a second communion service was held, with a baptism conducted for four people.
