An update of the church demolition from yesterday, the police arrived on site at 3am and by 3:30am the building was completely torn down. There were people sleeping in the church that were forcibly removed before the destruction. Those that were outside protesting (including some of the christian leaders we had met the previous day) were taken into custody awaiting release and/or trial.
The church was on a block were all other buildings had been removed in preparation for a large sewer line to be placed and the church was the last building standing. As soon as the demolition happened, the city dug the hole and placed the pipe and will be connecting it over the next few days.
Please lift them up as they search for a new location to meet as well for those in custody and also for the government.
