Mission: China August 8-18, 2008

My family and I had the wonderful opportunity to travel with a large group of like-minded believers to China during the Beijing Olympics. While we were there, we held prayer meetings, evangelized at the major tourist spots in Bejiing, handed out paper fans with the Gospel message printed on them, worshipped with the persecuted church, and held a vacation Bible school in the rural mountains of Zhen Zhou.

Holding the Bible school was the best part! Children came from all over this very poor village and were so excited to be visited by us. I’m sure it was the first time many of them had ever seen a white American. There were several children here from other parts of China participating in a government program. What an honor to get to work with them as well.

We played with them, sang with them, made crafts with them, and loved on them. We taught them the story of the Good Samaritan and helped them act it out for their parents one evening. We were able to communicate with them well, because one of our team members was a former missionary to China and was fluent in Mandarin. I’ll never forget the day he led the whole group in a salvation prayer, all 50 to 70 of them!

We even had a couple visits from the local police. We were afraid they were going to make us leave, but instead, they ended up playing with some of the toys we brought! They especially liked the jump ropes J

It was very exciting to get to be a part of this team. Many times after short-term mission trips we come home wondering if we really made a difference. I can say without a doubt, that we did!
