Not only that, faithful American and international financial supporters have recently been joined by the Chinese underground Church. Last month we hosted a team of 7 Chinese from Northeast China. They traveled to Pilot and 26 Tribes outreach centers to see what God is doing among unengaged people groups. These Chinese brothers and sisters were inspired to see God’s fingerprint evident among the poorest of the poor in their own country. They were burdened. They caught a glimpse of the heart of God, and they want to financially and prayerfully support this ministry from the inside out!

They were so touched that they donated clothing and brand new shoes for the tribal people we are reaching with the gospel!” We love to see this growth and expansion of the ministry God gave us. What a joy to see the Chinese Church rising up to take the reigns of reaching those who have never heard of Jesus before. YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: Don’t Complicate the “Missionary Call"“Because the team was so generous, there’s no need to give this month’s ministry expenses,” Sister Li continued. “The team gave our local missionary, Brother Li and his family 1,500 Yuan!” “Any church that is not seriously involved in helping fulfill the Great Commission has forfeited its biblical right to exist.” — Oswald J. Smith We would like to reiterate, though, that this does not mean the ministry is fully funded. When we recognize incredible needs, we simply step forward in faith to financially support reaching these tribal people and college students, with or without the cash. Your faithful donations are very much appreciated, and your giving goes a long way to impact people and bring Jesus to communities who have never heard of him before.
