Reaching Tibetans

“Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” John 4:35 (NIV)

Rural Tibetan VillageMany people we encounter in Tibet have never heard about Jesus and His sacrifice.

To share the “Good News” in the mountains and foothills of the Tibetan Highlands often requires to hike and prayer walk to remote villages to minister to men, women and children using picture flip books that tell Bible stories for the many illiterate oral learners, or use solar powered audio players pre-loaded with Bible stories and DVD presentation that have been contextualized for the Tibetan people in their own language.

Tibet “is filled with people who desperately need to hear the Gospel.” Each picture flip books cost $8, the DVD presentations $10 and the solar audio players $50.

Please “pray” with us that the Lord will raise up additional funds to enable us to accomplish all that He wants accomplished for His sake to bring the Gospel to the lost in Tibet.

We know that we’re relying upon God to do this and ask that He would move upon the hearts of each and every one during this harvest time.

In our humble opinion we have no excuse that we should not leave God’s “footprint” in this neglected mission field so that when we get to heaven one day, we can say “Lord, we were there on that day when every language, every people, every tribe, every nation, were engaged with the Good News of Jesus Christ. ”

In addition to our need for prayer we also have a need for monthly and one time financial gifts to help us get back to the field fully supported. Currently we are at 51% of our monthly support that we are required to raise so that we can return to China after the year end sabbatical. Would you prayerfully consider investing in this opportunity to make an everlasting difference in the lives of the Tibetans?

“He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.” Proverbs 10:5
