China is changing. Within a span of less than two years, it seems as though China has undergone quite the seismic shift, particularly in regards to its openness to outsiders. Previously assumed to be temporary COVID-related measures, these shifts are now in recent weeks revealing themselves to have the potential of being more long-term. Visas are scarce, opportunities to enter the country in the coming months seem slim, and even previous ways to “stay connected” such as VIPKid and other online education portals are being shut down.
Despite these changes, we trust that God’s love for the Chinese and His desire to see them saved remains constant. In light of this constant, Vision For China is thrilled to announce Underground Jiaohui 2021: Door of Utterance! Underground Jiaohui (Jiaohui is Chinese for “church”) is a conference all about missions in China put on by missionaries with the Vision For China team! Our first ever Underground Jiaohui was held in October of 2020, and this year’s is sure to live up to the hype with preaching and teaching on China from our team as well as sessions set aside specifically for prayer for China to open its borders!
In Colossians 4:2-4, Scripture says, “Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.”
It is with this passage in mind that we invite YOU to join us on October 22-23, in Alpharetta, GA, for a time of both preaching and practical teaching on China, the underground church, and the immense need for gospel laborers. Session topics will include praying for China, boldness amid persecution, language and culture acquisition, and strategy for mission.
This year’s conference will feature additional times of prayer to beg the Lord to reopen China’s borders and once again give missionaries a “door of utterance” in these unusual times.
The most exciting aspect of the conference is sure to be the time between sessions to connect with missionaries to China, ask them your questions, hear their stories, and discover their heart for making Jesus known in the most populous country on earth!
Don’t miss out as we gather to beg the Lord to reopen China’s borders and do a mighty work to advance His gospel throughout the country so that more and more Chinese will know and experience the Lord’s salvation!
