The official work of those ministries is having an impact in the world’s most populous country. Mission Network News reports Bibles for China operates differently than many other Chinese missions organizations. Instead of working in secret with unregistered church bodies, they work in the open, in cooperation with the government.
Along the way, the ministry collects stories from Chinese Christians to encourage others around the world. Because its presence is legal in China, the people its workers meet and the areas they visit generally have religious freedom to worship Christ. There will always be the presence of Chinese officials in the Church, but people are genuinely pursuing a Christian walk.
This unique situation has provided many ways for churches and individuals outside of China to help bring the Word of God into the country.
Ministry spokesperson Wendell Rovenstine tells Mission Network News Bibles for China is working with the registered Chinese Church, which has tremendous opportunities to go internally into rural China and verify the distribution of Bibles. Rovenstine adds the Bibles are always distributed by local churches.
The ministry is planning an upcoming strategy session to get more Bibles for distribution across China.
