The Door is now officially playing on the web and air waves in China! :)

Here's a Chinese write up on us.  Check it out!

Please pray for us as we board Mongolian Airways tonight. We are due to land in Ulaan Batar late Friday nite after a 90 minute flight. Disappointingly, a previously scheduled trip cancelled abruptly so we kicked into ‘plan B’.  But it doesn’t sound so ‘bish’ now because the Mongolian pastor said to Mark on the phone, “I was on my knees yesterday morning, asking God for encouragement and discipline within our worship teams, then the phone rang. I was shocked that my pastor friend in Beijing said you were coming to Mongolia! What a quick answer to my prayer.” 

We are encouraged that maybe what we viewed as plan ‘B’ might have been the best plan all along.  Pray for a fruitful 5 days and that what little Russian language skill we possess will return and multiply!

We had a two hour window of chill time before the workshops. We met up with Benjamin & Megan and took the guys to 789, Beijing's premier art district.  It is so encouraging to see budding artists with less and less restrictions.  Little increments in the area of 'freedom of expression' really do make a difference in society as the years tick by!

The WP Band lead two services at the BICF, Beijing's largest legal fellowship. Fourteen congregations, passports must be shown, and LOTS OF PASSIONATE worship!

Workshop Afternoon

Had the privilege of training leaders in worship over the weekend. Carrie worked with keyboards, Mark - guitar & vocal leading, Josh - bass, and Jon - drums. Lots of good interaction that came loaded with questions...and hopefully answers!
