Precious worship time during the camp. In China, minors under 18 are forbidden to participate in any religious activities in any form.
In 2018, China strengthened its regulations on Religious Affairs including the nationwide execution of the ban on children or youth below 18 years old from practicing their faith or attending any church services or activities.
However, this does not stop the Chinese Church from reaching out and discipling the next generation for Christ and His kingdom.
Recently, one of our partners paid a visit to a 3-day underground youth prayer camp in a city in western China.
Xiu* OD partner shares, “These young believers spent time to worship and to pray for their country, their family members, and other non-believers for their salvation in Christ! It was very powerful! I can feel the presence of the Lord!”
This group of young believers came from different backgrounds. “Some are orphans while others were rejected by their families because of their faith. They were hugging each other at the end of the camp. It was one of the most incredible moments I have seen!”
