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!

Our final stop in Shandong Province, the city of Yantai is home to nearly 7 million people. This city is quite unique in the history of Christianity as Hudson Taylor’s China Inland Mission established a major Chinese language school for its missionaries here. Missionary greats such a Jonathan Goforth and Lottie Moon cut their teeth on the Chinese language in this very city. Lead by Vision For China missionary Ben, we will have the opportunity to consider how the Lord would have us involve ourselves in missions in modern-day China.
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?
