Dear Pastors, Partners & Praying Friends,
What if I told you that a one-time love offering from you would help us return to China and continue to plant churches, would you consider giving?
The People’s Republic of China plays a crucial role in our world today and their influence is felt around the globe. China is still the largest country on earth. Its population boasts of 1.4 billion souls. The majority have yet to hear a clear presentation of the gospel. And with a death rate that reaches in the millions every year, there is a desperate need for the gospel there. My question is, “What are you doing about it?” China is in need of church-planting missionaries.
God has called my family and I to plant churches in mainland China. Over the past 8 years we have learned Mandarin Chinese, became familiar with the Chinese culture and gained ministry, church planting and pastor training experience. We are currently on furlough and are planning to return with a plan to establish more local Baptist Churches. Lord willing, we will be working on the foundation that we have already established in China.
With the changing political climate of China and the constant threat of persecution, we never know when the door of opportunity will be shut unto us. Our desire is to reach the Chinese people while the opportunity to do so is still available. Lord willing, we are heading back to China this fall and will plant more churches. In preparing for this church plant, we are raising funds for all the cost in starting a new church, as well as, funds for our reentry, such as funds for plane tickets, at least three months rent, and the cost of visas before we return. We are thankful for our partners who support us on a monthly basis and our praying friends, but now we are asking for you to consider a one-time love offering of any amount ($100, $250, $500, $1,000, etc.) to help us reach these needs.
- Church Planting Fund: $10,000
- Building Rent for one year = $7,000
- Utilities, Furniture, Materials, Misc. = $3,000
- Reentry Setup Fund: $20,000
- Plane Tickets for our family of seven = $6,000
- Housings Cost for three months rent plus deposit = $4,000
- Visas and Passport Renewal = $2,000
- Furniture and Appliances = $8,000
Washer $1,000; Refrigerator $800; Air conditioners $1,200; Deep freezer $500; Hot water heater $500; Living Room furniture $1,500; Bedroom furniture $1,000; Kids’ beds $1,500.
The one-time love offering will help us return to China and continue the work the Lord has given us to do. Will you be willing to give a one-time love offering of however much the Lord leads towards our church planting and reentry setup funds? Your one-time gift of will help us, Lord willing, return to China and continue to evangelize the lost, establish many more local baptist churches and equip and train national leaders. Of course, a gift of any amount is greatly appreciated. I pray that you will prayerfully consider partnering with us to see the need of this new church plant and the cost of our reentry funded. Will you be an extra blessing to this ministry with a one-time love offering?
We know that we couldn’t do anything without the help of God’s people. All gifts and love offerings of any amount can be given online, ChinaMinistry.org, or sent to Vision Baptist Missions, PO Box 442, Alpharetta, GA 30009 with a note in the memo. Thank you for giving, praying, serving, and being a part of our “China Ministry” team. We are especially fond of you! Let us continue pressing forward and keep fighting the good fight. May we strive every day to know Jesus, to be happy in the Him, and to make Him known!
In His Joyful Service,
