My parents leave this morning for China. They are going to Beijing for a mission’s trip for the next two weeks.
They head up an non-profit organization called, “Help Ministries International” a subsidiary of Help Ministries, Inc. This is their first trip to Asia on “business”, they were in Singapore for pleasure a couple years ago and my Mom visited me while I was living in Japan 15 years ago. They’ve spent the last 15+ years making trips back and forth to Romania. There, they’ve helped establish a Christian Radio Station, an art school and helped many many orphanages and hospitals.
This trip will be different. China just passed a new law… Church meetings can occur and they can bring in Bibles and ministry material but… they cannot exceed 20 people maximum in each meeting. No more than 20 people at one time can be in the same space at the same time!!! Otherwise it must be registered with the government and they do not want that.
Have a great time you two!!!
**UPDATE: I talked to my Mom before they took off for the Airport. After teaching / ministering… they’ll be visiting the Great Wall of China!! And other really cool places to see… Next time we’ll be going with them!!**
