I had the great priviledge to take a team of brothers into China earier this month for 15 days of gospel literature distribution.This was the second missions trip to China that I, and my son Caleb, have been on and we are ever so grateful for all that the Father used our team to accomplish.Our group of eight men split up into three sub-teams and went to different unreached areas in the provinces of Qinghai and Gansu. These areas are in north central China.Leading up to this mission I was somewhat vague as to the destination of our upcoming overseas trip. This was due to the sensitivity of the work and the location of the field. Now that the job has been completed, I'd like to share some of the details with you.Following the long flight to China, we traveled more than 30 hours by train and then another 20 by bus to arrive at our starting point. The scenery was beautiful and quite different than anything we've seen over here in the states. Deserts, snow covered mountains and prairies were on our route. The target group was comprised primarily of Tibetan Buddhists, Muslims and many Mongolians. The people were friendly and very kind.Click [url=http://www.lifeandlibertyministries.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=20]HERE[/url] to see photos from the China missions trip.Our team was able to smuggle approximately 460 lbs of gospel tracts into China and most of the people who received the literature had never heard the message of the Gospel before. I was blessed to get to know a young Tibetan in Qinghai who befriended our team and even invited us to his home to meet his family. He helped us tremendously while we were in his village being that he was the only person who spoke a little English. When he asked us what our religion was, I told him we were Christians. He had never even heard of Christianity or our Savior! Pray for him and all who heard the gospel.It was a busy two weeks with little food and less sleep. We distributed tracts during the day and during the overnight hours. Sleep was grabbed when possible as were meals. The Father greatly blessed the little rest we were able to get and gave us the strength to get the job done. All glory goes to Him!Please pray that the seeds sown will bring forth a harvest.
Some great photos, love the beard brother :) yes, may many seeds bring forth eternal fruit unto the glory of God and His Son Jesus Christ.

At what point did the team split up? Are there opportunities for telecommunication with each other, or, is there nothing as sophistocated as electricity, where you went?
How free were you to move around the areas where you were working? What penalties are available to the authorities, for what you did?
Were there any concerns about meeting back up with the rest of the team for the return journey?
