It wasn't easy for Mr. Cheng to exercise faith in this strange person named Jesus he'd been learning about—the whole concept felt so foreign to him. But there was something to it; a transforming power he couldn't deny. Was it something that could fill the aching pit in his soul?
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Unreached People Groups Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
What you are about to read is the amazing story of Sister Ai. One day on a mission trip to reach the A-Che people, Pastor Paul Fang made a wrong turn and ended up discovering another A-Che village named PiPai (name changed for security reasons)—which was completely unreached by the gospel. At first, it didn't seem like God was up to much in PiPai. A few seeds of the gospel were planted on the first two trips to this village, but little seemed to come of them. Pastor Paul and Timothy Yang left PiPai praying that God would open a door of opportunity into this village.
The meet is on the street! This common missions phrase, made popular by a well-known evangelist, accurately depicts where the heart of the Unreached People Groups Ministry (UPGM) is at. We believe that in order to reach people, we need to meet them where they’re at—on the streets—working up-close and personal with those who the world might even say are unreachable.
BOOM(!) is the best way to describe the economic climate that has characterized China over the past few decades. This has caused millions of villagers, from remote regions, to migrate to the nation’s mega-cities. Much of this new surge in the population are from unreached people groups and, although this means that there are still millions of souls who have never heard the precious name of Jesus, God has continually paved the way so that we may be able to reach China’s unreached with the gospel in ways we’ve never been able to before.
Last month we conducted a training seminar on Christian leadership and church planting. The Unreached People Groups Ministry subsidizes the costs for leaders from unreached people groups to attend Bible-based training. Our mission is to provide church leaders with a strong foundation in the Word, so that they can continue to reach unreached people groups and win souls for Christ. We believe there is no better strategy than to invest in leaders.
