Strategic World Impact
"SWI is a ministry that is global in nature, immediate in response, and dedicated to reaping souls for the kingdom. Nation after nation restrict the spread of the gospel and Bibles are considered illegal contraband. Christians are beaten, burned alive and banished. Our desire is to reach people with the gospel while meeting their physical needs. Food, blankets, shelter and medicine are used as a key to unlock the door of the hearts of the oppressed."

The Heavenly Man: The Remarkable True Story Of Chinese Christian Brother Yun

"The Heavenly Man is the intensely dramatic story of how God took a young, half- starved boy from a poor village in Henan Province and used him mightily to preach the gospel despite horrific opposition. Brother Yun is one of China's house church leaders, a man who despite his relative youth has suffered prolonged torture and imprisonment for his faith. His account challenges any complacency about the situation in China, where international economic investment ignores the brutal fact that religious persecution is still a daily reality for millions. Instead of focusing on the many miracles or experiences of suffering, however, Yun prefers to emphasize the character and beauty of Jesus."

Napoleon once said, "When China is moved it will change the face of the globe." Today those words are becoming a reality through the powerful spiritual vision of the Chinese church to send 100,000 missionaries across China's borders to complete the Great Commission, even in this generation! Here Brother Yun, Peter Xu Yongze, and Enoch Wang, three Chinese house church leaders who between them have spent more than 40 years in prison for their faith, explain the history and present-day reality of the Back to Jerusalem movement. Christians everywhere who are called to fulfill the Great Commission will be thrilled by this testimony and inspired to live bolder lives as disciples of Jesus Christ.
The Persecuted Church Prayer Devotional
The Persecuted Church Prayer Devotional
$ 11.24
More Christians were martyred in the twentieth century than all previous centuries combined, and this onslaught has continued unabated into the new century. As Christians living in the twenty-first century, it is our duty to be knowledgeable and be compelled to take action on behalf of those who are persecuted. One of the most essential actions we can take is to stand in the gap for them through prayer. The Persecuted Church Devotional lists over sixty countries that are in desperate need of prayer. It describes the past and present situation in each country and the challenges and opportunities for the future. Prayer points help the reader focus on specific areas of intercession once he or she is well informed. This excellent source of prayer for the persecuted church will be beneficial for churches, mission supporters, and mission agencies as a way to become informed and involved with the global church.
