Goforth China Tour City Preview: JINAN

This July, my wife and I will be leading a team of five young people on Vision For China’s first ever Goforth China Tour! The trip will encompass one-on-one evangelism opportunities, practical instruction on the state of Christianity in various regions of China, a trek along the Great Wall, and even a glimpse across the Yalu River into North Korea. Our desire is for these students to see China’s great need for the gospel themselves, to allow the Spirit of God to use their eyes to stir their hearts, and to consider what part they would have to play in what the Lord is doing in the nation of China! For more information about the trip, please click here.


The capital of Shandong Province in Eastern China, the city of Jinan boasts a population of 7.1 million people. We will begin our journey here, exploring Chinese life and culture all while being immersed in a sea of people. Hosted by Vision For China missionary Kanon, we will be able to experience this vast city and see its great need for the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Goforth China Tour will begin the last weekend in June and extend into the second week in July. Please pray for this trip! We are asking God to do a great work in the hearts of the five students who will be coming. Would you join us? Some of them are already seriously considering surrendering their lives to the Lord’s service in China. China is in need of more laborers! The harvest is great but the laborers are few! Will you join us in asking the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest?

May 2019 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,

We are excited to announce that we have recently purchased tickets to China for the Goforth China Tour! The Goforth China Tour is a survey/vision trip of China lead by my wife and I and will serve both as our own survey trip and a survey trip for a handful of students who are considering missions in China. The dates for the trip are locked in for Saturday, June 29, through Wednesday, July 10, of this year. While my wife and I are no strangers to South China, we plan to spend at least the first two years on the field in North China. This trip will allow us and a group of students to survey this part of the country and see how others on our Vision For China team are doing there. We are excited for this opportunity to briefly return to China and see the great need in the northern part of the country. Please pray for this trip! Pray that the Lord would use it in our lives to help us prepare to return to the field and pray that the Lord would also use it to raise up more laborers to GO!

We praise the Lord for a great month of deputation in April with eleven meetings, and we are excited about the eleven churches we are scheduled to be with in May. Lord willing, we will be able to present China in churches in MS, FL, GA, AL, TN, MD, PA, KY, and NC. Additionally, we will spend a five days in the middle of the month in NC for Vision Baptist Missions’ yearly orientation. This will be our third year to attend and we are looking forward to this time of encouragement, preaching, and training. Please continue to pray for us as we travel and present China. Pray that the Lord would use us to be a blessing to the churches we present in and that He would bless us with partners in the mission.
