As it has been for the rest of the world, 2020 has been very challenging for China. They began the year with the Covid-19 epidemic, a recent resurgence in Beijing and now earthquakes and flooding. On Sunday morning a 5.1 magnitude earthquake shook the northeastern city of Tangshan. Five earthquakes were reported on the 12th and 13th in China. Along with the earthquakes there has been torrential rains that have destroyed homes with millions now homeless. This is reminiscent of the floods 20 years ago that killed more than 3,000 people.
Although these are difficult times, they are only temporary. A more pressing need for the Chinese is their eternal state. the Bible is clear, Jesus is the only way of salvation, the only way for entrance into heaven. Yet millions have never heard the gospel in China.
Will you pray for the people of China? Will you pray that the government would allow missionaries into the country to plant churches? Will you pray that true believing Chinese Christians would be bold to share the gospel.
