China (MNN) — Despite the persecution, Christianity has increased in China over the years. It is slowly rising to be one of the world’s most Christian nations. A lot of the thanks go to missionaries and mission organizations, including Bibles for China.
Bibles for China has come alongside local churches in China to distribute Bibles for almost five years now. They’ve been able to pass out tens of thousands of Bibles. This last December alone, the ministry helped in the delivery of 10,000 Bibles.
But it’s not the amount of Bibles being passed out they’re excited about: it’s the number of lives being changed.
“Constantly, we hear [the people] say to us, ‘This Bible will touch a generation for Christ because it will be shared with family and their families,'” says Bibles for China’s Wendell Rovenstine.
“We feel sowing God’s Word in the interior part of China opens up a great opportunity for God to move.”
Though Bibles for China is primarily a distribution organization, they want to help the Good News spread from the inside out by giving training to local pastors.
On an upcoming mission trip, they’re planning to stay “one day longer with a pastor that is prepared and equipped. We have power point presentations that they work from. The pastor is spending a day of just giving leadership principles from God’s Word.”
Bibles for China know there is a strong desire to learn more about the Word among believers in the community. They hope training indigenous pastors will help the Gospel spread and more thoroughly answer their questions
In addition, the ministry is equipping the pastor with a leadership training Bible that can be shared with the congregation.
Bibles for China is visiting two distribution areas on the upcoming trip and could use your prayer that God will use them to make an incredible impact.
“He’s provided. We just thank Him and thank our partners that are going to Bibles for China’s website and accepting the leadership of the Lord to do what He calls them to do.”
Bibles for China is partnered with 28 ministry organizations from different countries. Together, they’re raising funds to buy Bibles in China’s primary language, Mandarin.
