Ministry in Asia

# I created this page as a gateway to the section of this Ministry dedicated to the "Persecuted Church."

As my experience in this area of Ministry has mainly been in China, much of what you will read here is taken from outside sources. I have been careful to include links to the original articles, where possible. Ultimately, my prayer is to raise the consciousness of the Body of Christ to the great challenges our Brothers and Sisters face in many parts of Asia.

And a vision appeared to Paul in the night. A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him, saying, "Come over to Macedonia and help us." Now after he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them.

There are many online sources of information about Ministry in Asia. i would like to recommend four, in particular, because of their timely work with the "Persecuted Church."

China Aid
"ChinaAid Association (ChinaAid) is an international non-profit Christian human rights organization committed to promoting religious freedom and the rule of law in China. We believe that religious freedom is the first freedom, which lays the foundation for all other basic human rights. By Exposing the Abuses, Encouraging the Abused, and spiritually and legally Equipping the Leaders to defend their faith and freedom, ChinaAid strives to promote religious freedom for all. "
Voice of the Martyrs
"The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years."
Forum 18
"Forum 18 is an instrument to promote the implementation of Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and concentrates upon gross and open breaches of religious freedom, especially situations where the lives of individuals or groups are threatened, and where the right to gather based upon belief is threatened."

If you have read this far, I thank you. in my time in China I have been amazed at how difficult it is to get the Church in the "first world" to stand up in behalf of their fellow-laborers here in Asia. Don't stop with just reading. At the very least visit the Ministry websites I've mentioned here. Get your family involved. Encourage your church members to speak out. Get on a plane and COME to today's "Macedonia."

The Church in Asia needs you. Come, see for yourself what's wrong. I'd love to hear from you.
