A unique evangelistic tool for ministry in China that was published by the Luis Palau Association two years ago has already made an incredible impact.
In partnership with believers in Beijing, the ministry developed What is Christmas? – an evangelistic book in both English and Chinese that presents the significance of the birth and story of Christ.
Although it took several years and required government approval, the book was finally published two years ago. To celebrate, Andrew Palau travelled to Beijing in 2013 to lead a Christmas outreach and speak at one of the largest churches in Beijing. The church distributed thousands of copies of the book at the services for believers to share with family and friends. In addition, local companies expressed interest in using the book as a Christmas gift for their employees, and a local publisher made the book available through other channels.
Following the successful event in China that year, Palau was invited back for an extended, multi-city tour to promote the book at churches across eastern China.
During their most recent time in China, the ministry established new, foundational relationships with key pastors and they are already anticipating open doors for next year and the future.
The Luis Palau Association is asking for prayers for the new believers in China, for the pastors as they minister to their congregations, and for the harvest that is certain to follow as the Christmas book reaches more individuals.
