Short-term team lays groundwork for long-term ministry in China.

By October 23, 2006

China (MNN)–A Partners International short-term team of medical workers, pastors, and Gospel workers visited a Miao village in rural Guizhou (GWEE-JOE) Province to lay the groundwork for long-term outreach.

The team provided medical care for villagers and dedicated a new Partners International-funded clinic. Then they got to work.

More than 85 people were treated and given free medicine. Free toothbrushes and toothpaste were distributed. The Gospel team was also ready and they ministered to each of the patients and onlookers as well, sharing Christ and praying for them. The people were receptive to the love of Christ.

In the coming nine months, Partners hopes to raise funds to build five more Christ Faith Hope and Love Medical Clinics in unreached Chinese villages.

Since they began working in China in 1943, Partners International has fine-tuned their approach of partnering with indigenous Christian ministries.

They continue to identify strategic ministries and provide an array of resources that strengthen and grow their work. The result? About 1,000 churches are planted every year. Click here if you want to find out what partnership entails.
