One of the features of the South Korean church is that it is quite vibrantly making its mark around the world. Korean missionaries seem to be everywhere, and Koreans often hold prominent positions in many Christian organizations, such as theological colleges and para-church groups. Might the same soon happen with the Chinese church?
Dr. Carsten Vala, an associate professor at Loyola University in Maryland, says this is already occurring. “Chinese are founding churches all over the world, in part because Chinese workers are now all over the world…and in part because Chinese are doing business as entrepreneurs all over the world,” he said. “Chinese missionaries are also reaching out to Central Asian and Muslim countries albeit in small numbers, seeking to open up countries that Americans, Canadians or South Korean Protestants find it difficult to reach.”
What has happened in South Korea has been a mighty demonstration of God’s power. It is now starting to look as if this may just have been a dress rehearsal for what He plans for China.
BIBLE STUDY: Psalm 40:1-3
PRAISE God He is working His purposes out.
PRAY that the Chinese Church may be a beacon for Christ.
