A Note From Pastor Peter in China

post date: September 14, 2008

I have written before about my friend Peter who pastors a house church in China. In the last few months, we have been working with Peter to establish “Keep Believing China” to provide Chinese-language translations of sermons on the Keep Believing website. So far Peter has translated over 100 of my sermons in Chinese. He keeps the Bible and theology and swaps out American illustrations for ones that fit the Chinese culture. In the last two years he has preached through several different series: the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, Total Forgiveness, and several sermons on stewardship. For the last year he has been preaching through Romans. “I learned to preach by using your sermons,” he said.

Last Sunday he preached to his congregation in China based on my sermon called Three Steps to Victory.

Afterwords he send me this message:

Ray,
I gave your message of Romans 6:8-14, three steps to victory. It was so amazing and so encouraging, and all congregation was greatly blessed! Thanks a lot in Christ!
Peter

We do live in amazing times. I can write a sermon in the US, hit the Send button, and in a matter of seconds that sermon ends up in China. Our weekly email sermon now goes out to 4,883 people around the world. We count it an honor to partner with Peter and with other pastors like him in many different countries. We sow the seed in faith, others water with their prayers and their preaching, but it is God who gives the increase.
