Goforth China Tour Update: ARRIVED!

My wife and I are currently leading a short term trip to China called the Goforth China Tour! This trip is both a missions trip and vision tour. We desire that the Lord would use this trip to stir up the hearts of those on our team to get more involved in the cause of world evangelism. For more information about the trip, please click here.

I just wanted to send everyone a quick update and let everyone know that our Goforth China Tour team has arrived in China!!

I’d like to ask that you all please pray with us that the Lord would use this trip in a mighty way in the lives of the five young people on our team.

Would you please pray that God would do a work in their hearts?

Would you please pray that the Lord would call more laborers into His harvest field?

Would you pray that the Lord would call more laborers into the field of China?

The Goforth China Tour began the last weekend in June and will 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?

More Tasmanian, Less Toddler

Ladies and Gentlemen, my wife and I are thrilled to announce that our son, Abraham Hudson, has officially hit three years old!

Last year, the internet exploded with all sorts of fanfare surrounding the sighting of a so-called “Tasmanian Toddler” that was terrorizing churches across America with his whirlwinds, fist bumps, and general “cuteness”(Click here for details).

This year, Anny and I are astounded to report that while said Tasmanian toddler is becoming less and less “toddler”, he is still as “Tasmanian” as ever – perhaps even more so than before!

While this ever-active fireball of a kid still shares the same affinity for balls with his two-year old self, he has also taken a liking to dinosaurs, monster trucks, and singing “Victory in Jesus” while on his various road trips across America.

Last year it was hopefully anticipated by his mother and me that his jump-start into “terrible territory” that came about by misreading the “terrible twos memo” as the “terrible twenty months memo” might mean an early exit from said so-called “terrible territory”. We are, however, distraught to announce that his level of “terrible” has only seemed to escalate to ever greater heights.

On the bright side, these next twelve months look to be promising for little Abraham as he continues to systematically fist-bump, whirlwind, and generally chatter-box his way over to China.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABRAHAM! Your Mom and I sure are thrilled to be your parents, even if we sometimes complain about being constantly kept on our toes!

Goforth China Tour City Preview: DANDONG

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!

DANDONG

Tucked away along the Yalu River and overlooking North Korea, the city of Dandong is home to about 2.5 million people. It is from this side of the river that missionary Jonathan Goforth made his way into the Korean Peninsula and witnessed great revival among Korean believers nearly a century ago. Vision For China is currently praying for the Lord to give us a man who will commit to laboring for the gospel in this city to reach both Chinese and Koreans with the gospel. Here we will be able to look directly into North Korea and pray for the Lord to do a mighty work in this city and into North Korea.

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?
