Charity's Heading to China!
July 13, 2013
Dear Friends and Family,
Can you envision living in a place where you have never heard the gospel or frequently visiting Buddhist monasteries to chant prayers and spin prayer wheels? Can you imagine living life entrapped in Islam not sure of where you'll go when you die? This is the daily life of many Buddhists and Muslims living in Western China.
The Lord has given me an opportunity this September to take part in a missions trip to western China. I will be there for four weeks. I will be working mainly in Gansu for the ﬁrst two weeks along with 8 or so other team members, going out at night putting gospel tracts out on doorsteps, shopfronts, benches, bicycle baskets, and places they will be found the next morning. Afterwards we will head south to Hong Kong and spend time doing border crossings, smuggling in Bibles for the underground church. I am very excited about this opportunity.
I have been able to go to China three times thus far and the Lord has burdened me with a heart to bring the Gospel to these unreached peoples. Our target people groups will be Tibetan Buddhists and Hui (Hway) Muslims. They have very little understanding of the true gospel or the Son of God who died to give eternal life to the world and set
I have been saving my money but still need to raise about $1,500 in the next few months. I am looking for opportunities to earn money for this trip, so if you have any extra work I'd be interested.
Or if the you feel the Father leads you to donate financially towards this trip I would greatly appreciate it! But most of all I would greatly appreciate your prayers during this trip. Please pray that we would be able to get all of our "cargo" in without detection, for safe travels, and most of all that many souls will be brought to Christ!
"If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be ﬁlled, at least let it be ﬁlled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for."
Gifts can be sent to:

You can also donate online through Life and Liberty Ministries.
Please be sure to note that the gift is for my missions trip to China.

for three weeks. We are going into unreached areas.
Prayers are appreciated and monetary support is also needed.

Thanks so much. We can't do this without the aid of the Body.

Going Back To China !
February 6, 2012
I just purchased my airline ticket to China. Our team will be leaving at the end of April for three weeks of Gospel literature distribution in unreached Buddhist and Muslim regions.
1. Please pray that the Father puts together a strong team.
2. Pray that the funds will come in to cover the expenses.
3. Pray for fertile soil.
If anyone would like to help us by going or financially supporting, feel free to send me a message and I will send you my phone number to discuss the needs.

Voice of the Martyr's Report on China
November 5, 2011
China was declared the People's Republic of China in 1949 by Chairman Mao Zedong, who quickly sought to purge society of anything religious. In recent years, living standards have improved in urban areas while little has changed in the countryside, promoting discontent. Political controls remain tight. The human rights record in China is one of the worst in the world. Its system of "re-education through labor" detains hundreds of thousands of people each year in work camps without a court hearing. In Tibet, an autonomous region within China, Christians are trapped between the oppression of Buddhism and the oppression of communism. On May 8, 2009, after the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) recommended China remain on the U.S. Department of State's list of the world's worst violators of religious freedom, a spokesman for China's Foreign Ministry said the report was "an attempt to smear China." Each year, China forcibly repatriates around 4,000 refugees to North Korea -- where they face imprisonment, torture and even execution.

More Christians are in prison or under detention in China than in any other country. House churches (unregistered churches), which make up approximately 90 percent of China's Christians, endure unimaginable persecution. But they stand by their commitment to preach the gospel, no matter the cost. In Tibet, most of the persecution against Christians comes from militant Tibetan Buddhists. On Feb. 11, 2009, Chinese authorities arrested 60 house church leaders, including two South Korean pastors who were attending a seminar in Wolong district, Henan province. Police officers disrupted the meeting, arrested the Christians and confiscated phones, books and money. Authorities forced the believers to register with the government and pay a fine. Elderly believers were released, but the South Korean pastors were deported three days later for "engaging in illegal religious activities." They have been banned from entering the country for five years. Other house church Christians remain in detention, and several churches have been forced to close or relocate.
Tibet, an autonomous region within China has much demonic bondage. Christians are trapped between the oppression of Buddhism and the oppression of communism. In the months leading up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Chinese government cracked down on Tibetan independence advocates.

Most of the persecution against Christians comes from militant Tibetan Buddhists. There may be about 1,000 evangelical and 2,000 Catholics among the five million Tibetans in the world, and there are at least two groups of secret believers in Tibet. A Tibetan version of the Bible was translated in 1948, but many cannot read it because they are illiterate. Pastor Zhang Zhongxin was given two years of re-education through labor in 2008 for his crimes, one of which was preaching the gospel in Tibet.

Hello from the Greens!
The Green Nation is ever growing. Our youngest is nearly a year old and Caleb,21, is now in a courtship! Please pray for Ruthy and I as we seek to raise our children to know, love, and serve the Father. There is no such thing as an unfocused "good" parent. We are learning as we go along and it is a tough job and a joy.
About three years ago we lost our LLM office in a house fire. With our computers went our mailing list of our friends and supporters. About a year ago I began to piece together a new mailing list. The computer hard drive that contained that list was accidentally destroyed by Best Buy when it was taken in for service. So... we have depended solely upon e-mail and Facebook to keep everyone up-to-date with our activities. I have also been very negligent to express my great appreciation to those of you who have sacrificially supported this ministry and prayed for us. I actually just went through 2 years worth of envelopes that contained support checks that were stacked on my shelf. Some were never replied to. If you are one of those people who have wondered if your support was appreciated, the answer is YES! Not having a real office area has made it a little difficult to stay on top of "office" work but I am committed to make a new system work and stay in better communication with our friends and supporters. I want to be a blessing to those who bless us. How can we serve you? Please let us know.
I have been blessed through the years to have several faithful team members who minister with me daily at the abortion clinics.
Please pray for us as we reach out daily at the killing centers.
We use code words while traveling in China so as not to bring attention to our true reason for being there. Gospel Tracts are "crumbs." Bibles are "Bread." Churches are "Clubs." Pastors are "Presidents." etc. We will be carrying over a ton of Gospel literature into China in Dec. Pray that it all gets in!
Last week LLM joined forces with Brothers and Sisters from Good News Free Will Baptist Church for an outreach at VCU. We hope to make it a regular event on Fridays as we are able. Opportunities daily abound to share the Gospel on the sidewalks at the clinics also. Pray for us and those we encounter.

Various Gospel Outreaches
I and the children (Christian, Gabriel and Charity) have been putting many hours into building our family business, "Remnant Books." Our hope is to build a business that will someday provide support for the ministry outreaches of LLM and other ministry outreaches around the world. The next time you are looking to buy a book, please check with us to see if we carry it first. All money raised is put back into Gospel outreaches. You can visit our bookstore at www.remnantbooks.org.
