It's one of China's few unofficial house churches left church assemblies at operate without state sanctioned because well they arrest you for doing this. Most of China's Protestant house churches operate underground to avoid attracting official attention and control. But this church openly practised it's faith and they posted their sermons online, and they evangelized on the streets. So yeah, they definitely caught the attention of the government. Yeah.

So another words if you want more than one child if you want to children you had to be only one of you has to be an only child. Yeah. Okay. Wow. Is that weird? But you know, hey, that's the model.
