A team of 3 left the UK early in January for a teaching and training programme in Central China. We arrived to find it was intensely cold and for the team the 2 weeks in China were a real roller coaster! I do not think we have faced any greater personal spiritual battles than those 14 days.

The ministry side, the Chinese church people, the training was excellent, we had around 70 leaders and aspiring leaders, many of them young people on a training programme. The days were filled with times of prayer and praise, teaching and eating! The passion for God and for their nation is very inspiring.

Although we went through a tough time personally but we are still on our feet and have come through in a very positive way confident in Jesus and assured of His amazing grace.
