China: Thousands Of New Believers Despite Increased Persecution

In China, a pastor who trains Chinese Christian leaders says as many as 100,000 new believers are coming to Christ every year despite the increased persecution.

Rev. Erik Burklin who works with China Partner said he is encouraged to see how God is working to build the Church in China regardless of the government’s crackdown on Christianity.

He shared how the government made a donation of nearly $7.3million to Union Theological Seminary in Nanjing. He added that he was amazed that in a country where Communism still runs, the Central Government would donate so that a local school – the national seminary in China — can finish constructing their chapel.

We thank God for this great news and we enjoin you to continue to pray for the Christians in China!
