The Opportunity is Now
Christians can enter the country and live out their faith through their work. Because of the Communist system in place in China, teachers there must be careful about how they conduct themselves and how they interact with the people. Many use the roots of American holidays to share some aspects of their faith with their students. Other doors are opened by the curiosity of Chinese students about American culture and Christianity in general, and through friendships that naturally develop between teachers and their students. Teachers use these opportunities to invite those who are interested to their apartment to talk more about their questions. Often these conversations become the basis for an ongoing discovery group. These teachers also meet with small groups of fellow Christians in their apartments for worship, fellowship, and study.
One thing that is clear—God has been at work in China for a long time and the number of believers there has been growing in ways that only He can bring about. Our workers in China are seeking to help nurture and equip the family in China, as well as encourage and study with those who are seeking to know God. Of course, God has also used the Chinese people and culture and the Christians there to teach and mold the workers that we send.
If you think this opportunity resonates with your own heart, and if you have a yearning to be a part of something much bigger than yourself, we want to talk with you.
