China (MNN) — Theres a variety of unhappy information coming from China as strain on Christians will increase. However need to hear one thing constructive? Bibles for China is reflecting on this yr in ministry and God is transferring.
Wendell Rovenstine, President of Bibles for China says they distributed almost 55,000 copies of Gods Phrase in 15 Chinese language provinces this yr.
Most of Bibles for Chinas work in the present day is thru native Chinese language believers.
Over the past a number of years, I believe most organizations have realized that that may’t be carried out by Westerners or one other nation coming in as foreigners inside China, Rovenstine says. The group members that now we have in China [are] discovering alternatives that we didn’t know or couldn’t uncover ourselves. They’re discovering new provinces we are able to go to if there’s not a foreigner concerned.
The ministry additionally works with Chinese language college students at schools and universities in the USA. We useful resource Bibles to them, they will take them again into the nation, and we imagine very strongly the sowing of God’s Phrase is everlasting [and] makes a distinction.
Bibles for Chinas choices have expanded too. They now distribute every part from normal print Bibles and Gospels of John to Crossway Examine Bibles and Wiersbe Bible Commentaries.
Theyre additionally taking a look at going high-tech. We’re speaking about perhaps growing hubs with these church buildings that we’re listening to and going to, Rovenstine says. They may usher in a hub and be capable of attain downloads that they’d be capable of have in these Bible research teams…inside China.
Rovenstine notes probably the most encouraging elements of ministry is connecting with different organizations who’re simply as obsessed with proclaiming the title of Jesus.
It at all times simply overwhelms me after I understand that the Bible by YouVersion, by Wycliffe, by The Bible Mission, the Bible is being disseminated all around the world.
In the present day, believers from 45 international locations are supporting our Chinese language Christian brothers and sisters by Bibles for China. I’d have stated, ‘That’s inconceivable!’ Rovenstine displays. However from Zambia to Singapore, now we have people which have found us on BiblesforChina.org and have made a contribution to the ministry.
Please pray for Chinese language believers receiving Bibles to share them with others. Ask God to guard church buildings in China as they proclaim the Gospel, and for non secular revival to finally sweep the nation.
