The Far East and the Middle East forge new relationships

By August 13, 2010

China (OM/MNN) — Operation Mobilization (OM) says there's a growing bond between
Israel and China. The connection between the Far East and the Middle East is
not so unlikely as you might think.

OM Israel's Field Leader recently returned from a trip to mainland China.
Many pastors there trace the roots of their churches to Hudson Taylor and his
small band of workers in the late 19th Century. Now the Chinese Church is
longing to bring the Gospel to the world and back to Jerusalem.

The Field Leader says, "This past week we have had the privilege of hosting two
groups from Hong Kong and getting them involved in practical outreach: prayer
walking, postbox tracting, drama, dance and even painting a wall mural on the
community centre of a Bedouin town.

"Our team has formed a link with a Bedouin young man who has a vision to
develop after-school enrichment programmes for his community. Two girls on the
team ran a short English program last year. And last week a group from Hong
Kong painted a mural of the Good Samaritan on the wall of the centre, sharing
the story with the children in drama and dance."

Please pray that God will bless and guide this growing relationship and
vision of the Chinese Church.
