My Vision My vision is to someday be a missionary in China. God called me there when I was 10 years old. He used a youth pastor and told me that I would be missionary in China someday. I did not really feel like that is what God wanted for me at the time, but now I do. There is a great need for missionaries. There are many people there that have not heard about the gospel yet, and the people that do, do not have the Bible and Christian literature to grow in their walk with the almighty God that loves them so much.
I want to be used by God in bringing them the things they need. My Preparation Though I am only 15 years old, I feel that I should start preparing now for the mission field. First, God is preparing my heart through Bible verses that I have read and through people I have met. I want him to help me love the people of China like He loves them.
Secondly, I am preparing mentally, by going to the Bible college, and learning and memorizing more about the Bible.I am learning Chinese through high school to better equip me to communicate with people there. The rest of my studies are teaching me the skills I will need to have living there. The mission field can be very aggressive, so I am also preparing by training physically, by running, lifting weights, eating right, and many other things. I practice survival skills and camping in the wilderness to better help me in the mission field of China.

Current Spiritual Conditions ? Christians in China have a hunger for God’s Word and desire to learn more about Him. They are currently under a communist government that does not let them worship God in their own way. The government has lightened up somewhat by creating government run churches, but Christians who want to be independent are still persecuted.Because of this they have underground churches that teach the Bible the way God wants them to without the government knowing. There are many Christians in China and they are growing more every day.
However, because of their persecutions the Chinese Christians have a strong faith in God. One thing God uses in furthering the Gospel is to use the Christians that get arrested for preaching the gospel by reaching prisons that are filled with lost souls. Prayer Needs ? Thank you for your prayer support. My current prayer needs are for guidance and preparation.Please pray that God will continue to show me His will in my life and that I would have ears to listen to His voice through the chaos of this world.

Please continue to pray for the Christians in China and that God will prepare the way for when I go there.
