It is really hard to change the environment in China. But the church can be a blessing to society. We truly believe that real change and real renewal can only be brought forth by the gospel and by Christians.
The church does not belong to this world. The powers of the world can never really destroy us. Even at the strongest point of the power of darkness, that is when the church grows the most and is at its most powerful.
In 2008, the earthquake happened. [It measured 8.0 on the Richter scale and occurred on May 12, 2008, in Sichuan, China.] There have been other earthquakes since, but this was the biggest and worst, with the most deaths.
