Will you give a believer in China an opportunity to dig deeper into God’s Word?

Are you looking forward to worshipping in your church this summer? - I know I am. I have missed being with my church family, learning from God’s Word and praying together.

But the next time you step inside your church, please pray for millions of Christians in the ‘house-church’ movement in China.

Right now, the persecution Christians face from their local governments in China has reached a new level.  We believe that it is time to pray and act now “while it is still day.” And we need your help to turn our plans for China into reality.

Together we are helping Christians in China to live out their faith

In 2020, you made it possible for us to print over 347,700 copies of Derek’s books in Chinese including By Grace Alone, Entering the Presence of God, Foundational Truths for Christian Living and others.

Also, we are increasing our engagement with online audiences by making Derek’s teaching available via WeChat and our websites. More and more Christians in China are looking for Bible teaching online, and we are reaching people there with our materials in 512 towns and cities in 34 districts.

Together we are serving believers and churches facing growing persecution

The clampdown on the church which started in 2018, the government’s efforts to ‘sinicise’ Christianity (make it Chinese by, for example, forcing preachers to teach Marxist doctrine), and a lack of understanding of the Bible amongst many Christians, are all making our work truly challenging. One of our DPM team from mainland China put it this way:

“Right now the persecution Christians face from their local governments in China has reached a new level. In some ways, this is a second Cultural Revolution. I believe 2021 is going to be a hard year for believers in China.”

We believe that it is time to pray and act now “while it is still day.” And we need your help to turn our plans for China into reality.

Will you join forces with our China outreach workers by donating £30, £60 or £100 today?

  • Our plan for 2021 is to match the total of books distributed in 2020—by printing at least 330,000 life-giving books for Chinese Christians. The church networks we serve are continually asking for more—so we can hardly do less! The printing cost for our books ranges in price between 20 pence and 75 pence per copy, so the average cost per book is just 50 pence.
     
  • Last year we equipped 20,000 church leaders with USBs packed with Derek’s teaching. Each USB costs around £5 and has a converter connection which enables them to be connected to Android cell phones as well as computers. And, as brother Zhang and many others tell us, what we are providing has proved to be an effective way of combating Bible ignorance and false doctrine. 

    “Many are hungry and look online for Bible teachings, but there are many false teachings, cults and sects. Thank you for providing those USBs and audio devices, so we can feed on the Bible. It is just what we need.” (Brother Zhang)
  • Finally, with your support, we can expand the reach of our online ministry right across China, blessing and equipping more believers like sister Liu, who are seeking to benefit from our online courses.

    Your online course will be a new beginning for us; we will use all these teachings for our daily services to our church. There are a lot of preachers in China who need such teaching and training!” (Sister Liu)

     
  • Your strategic gift of £100 today can enable our workers to upload more of Derek’s teaching onto WeChat, on our Chinese websites and to engage with more people on various digital platforms.

With deep gratitude for your prayers and generosity,
