A UCSD student who cannot read or write chinese starts a partnership with a local church which has grown from 5-75 and preparing to send missionaries to a muslim area. The church is continuing to grow and 2 new leaders have stepped up into full-time ministry.A caucasian foreigner, who cannot speak chinese, operates an orphanage for disabled females. Over the course of two years, these orphanages provide training, care, and emotional healing to girls who have weathered over 18 years of neglect and abuse. It is Christ’s love that has transformed these women from unbelievers to believers and given them a hope and a family that they didn’t once have.
A friendly basketball game turns into a conversation of christmas, church, and God. Fudan university is a collection of some of the brightest minds in China and many of them are seeking answers.Lunch with a college student who is a member of the communist party, a party that persecutes the ekklesia. We discussed the political vs. moral dilemma in work with migrant children and the future landscape of China. It is these conversations that reminds me that providing bread and fish is not the reason we are here, but to point people to the man who can turn 2 loaves to feed thousands. Any charity group, run by the goverment or a religious organization, can provide the same services, but it is the supremacy of the one who provides that we must proclaim. It is the relationship that these people truly need.
