ChinaSource wrote recently stressing the importance of reaching with the Gospel the many Chinese students and scholars who are studying outside of China. ChinaSource listed several reasons why such Gospel work is so strategic.
A distant memory comes to mind. In 1985 I went into China for the second time and was able to visit a Christian doctor working in a hospital in Changsha. Those were early days, quite soon after the Cultural Revolution. This brother was so happy to see foreign Christians that he took out his gramophone (this was 1985!) and played the “Hallelujah Chorus” loudly. I was struck by the reaction of his wife. She was frightened and told him to turn it down in case they got into trouble - they lived within the hospital campus. The next time I met her was in the UK at a Chinese Christian gathering. She was following the Lord without fear or restriction. For many that is a very real factor. The time outside China is an incredibly important time to reach them with the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1. Pray for all of those Chinese students, scholars and others who are studying outside of China at this time.
2. Pray for organisations that specifically work in this area, seeking to reach as many Chinese studying overseas as possible.
3. Pray for the very important time when the students and scholars return home to China, that they would find local Christian groups and churches, and not give way to fear but continue to follow the Lord.
4. Pray that the Lord would lead you to Chinese students studying overseas.
