Gaining Vision in the Valleys

Gaining Vision in the Valleys

Chinese believers go outside their comfort zone to learn more about the UPGs surrounding them Deep in Western China, there are many places that are known as “zero regions.” This simply means that there is no known engagement with the Gospel in these places, with entire minority groups with their own cultures, languages, and beliefs in which no one knows anything about Jesus. On a long holiday weekend, my team and I invited a handful of local Chinese believers to travel with us out to one of these valley villages and spend time learning about and praying for the people there. Though we all had some reservations about the trip, we trusted God that He had great things planned. Most of our friends came into the trip with some nerves. They had never been to a place where they (Han Chinese) were the minority. Within China, there are many different people groups. The Chinese government only recognizes 56 of them, when in reality there are over 500. These people groups have different belief systems, languages, and cultures. In China, there is oppression and prejudice towards minority people groups. Our friends who are Han Chinese (the majority people group) often have been taught their whole lives that the minority groups are dirty and dangerous people. It takes a lot for them to unlearn these beliefs. Therefore, it took a lot of bravery to even say yes to joining us on this trip. We set out on our journey with very few expectations because we had no clue what the place was going to be like. We prayed on the way...
All to Him I Surrender

All to Him I Surrender

Walk in the shoes of one woman’s journey to the unreached Ruth is a young woman well on her way to giving her life to the purposes of Christ. We are blessed to be a small part of her journey as she continues mobilizing others to embrace unreached peoples and preparing herself to be a missionary to the nations. This is her story. Ruth* Female | 30+ One Way to True Joy Growing up in a Christian home, I was taught the truths of the Bible from a young age. However, I lived two different lives – kind and mild-mannered at church, and strong-willed and self-centred at home. I fought to be the best in everything I did, yet my life felt empty and without purpose. I wanted intimacy with God, but I had not turned my life over to Him in surrender at that point. While studying in Canada in 2005, I attended a weekend church conference outside the city just so that I could have a holiday. That decision turned out to have a dramatic impact on my life. As I heard the pastor recount the gospel, I finally began to understand the depths of His grace. That conference also turned out to be a simultaneous call for me to surrender my life completely to Jesus as Lord, and to join Him in His work to bring His truth and love to people who have little or no access to the gospel. Surrender and Submission Even while the Lord was doing His saving work in me, He was also developing my interest in missions, and I started...

Medical Missions Delivers Life

Pictured above: Kenyatta University medical students passing out sanitary towels for women in an unreached people group within a traditionalist Kenyan town A Kenyan medical student experiences the impact of real-life missions through Ghanaian Christian midwives “I may be a little biased, but I truly believe doctors have one of the greatest opportunities to impact the world in missions.” I first heard Miriam Ndanu share these words with her classmates as she was introducing me as the guest speaker in their weekly Christian Union meeting. Miriam is a medical student at Kenyatta University who realized that God has given her unique gifts and opportunities to be a witness of God’s love and grace to the rest of the world. When we first met Miriam, she didn’t know much about the 10/40 Window or the Biblical basis of missions. Like most Kenyan believers, Miriam saw missions as a Western idea, not something for African believers. Because Miriam held this belief, she did not see herself playing an active role in accomplishing the Great Commission. For her, being a good Christian meant going to church every Sunday while staying away from the things of this world. During her fourth year of medical school, Miriam was able to connect with a few of the CMM field workers in Nairobi, Kenya. It was during that time that God showed her what following Jesus was truly about. Through Scripture, Miriam saw that she was truly blessed by God to be a blessing to others. Verses like Genesis 12:1-3 and 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 gripped her heart. This was a complete paradigm shift in her Christian...
