On November 24, 2019 one of the churches that Vision For China works with in mainland China was raided by the police. The members and pastor were taken into the police station and then later released. As one of the missionaries was trying to encourage the Chinese pastor, that pastor sent this simple text which translates into “The cross before me, the world behind me, no turning back, no turning back.”
Thus, in light of the recent persecution among the pastors we work with in China, we are giving you a way to get involved: You can purchase a shirt and (1) every time you wear it remember to pray for these persecuted pastors with the Vision For China team; (2) all the proceeds from these shirts will go to help support and encourage these pastors during this time of uncertainty. For another way to support these pastors, please check out the Dalian Initiative page.
