China (MNN) China continues to respond to tough scrutiny on their religious and humanitarian rights record.
World Bible Translation Center’s John Andersen says they’re taking advantage of the window. “We are distributing 150,000 Easy-To-Read Bibles this year outside of China that will go into China. Those Bibles are being given to tourists and travelers and Communist party leaders who can afford to travel outside of China.”
The Center works with a partner who mobilizes volunteers for distributions in Thailand, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, and Macau. The packets include tracts, a gospel portion, one Jesus Film VCD and Bibles. All of these pieces are in Mandarin. Two of them, the Blessing tract and the Four Spiritual Laws tract, are bi-lingual (Mandarin/English).
There’s a definite interest in the ‘seeds.’ As tour groups are approached with the Good News, between 40% to 50% of the members accept the Bible and evangelistic literature that goes along with it.
Andersen says they’ve seen incredible evangelistic growth in the seven years they’ve been partnering to get Bibles into China. “The number of Christians in China have jumped from three-and-one-half to five percent. That’s 30,000 Chinese citizens becoming Christians every day. There’s over 100-million Christians now in China, and there’ll be 200-million Christians by the middle of this century.”
Pray for the hearts of those who receive the Word.
