Quote to Ponder:

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them: for God hath shewed it unto them.  Romans 1:19

 “ I have found that whether Buddhist or Muslim they are a lot more open to talk about the Gospel than here in the United States...there is a great spiritual need ...whether Communist, Tibetan, or Muslim...we are all sinful.  We all have a conscience.  It tells us we are sinners and guilty.  How do we deal with the sin problem?”  - Dennis Green
 

Our Guest: Dennis Green

Missionary to Virginia
Missionary to Northwestern China
 

Focus Notes:

  • North West China – predominately Muslim and Buddhist – totally unreached
  • Seed Sowers – offering first exposure to Christianity
  • 3 weeks – 3 person team – extra baggage
  • Flying under the radar – tourist Visa
  • The adventure is safer than you might think
  • The trip is cheaper than you might think – 3 weeks - $2,000
  • Night time delivery of the Gospel – “Crumbs from the Loaf”
  • Fresh Ground & Freshness in receptiveness in a land of isolationism
  • “Good News” from the outside world
  • No discarded tracks – seeds sown on good ground
  • Short term missions – a reality check
  • A different world – The One Child Policy

 

Summary:

How does a man from Virginia, father of 12, get hooked on short term missions trips to Northwestern China.  It is the familiar story of being invited by a friend and became totally sold out for this people group and this Seed Sowing ministry.  In late April, 2010 Dennis Green departed on his 10th short terms missions trip to spend 3 weeks showering a strategically mapped out territory totally unreached for the Gospel.  The peoples of this area are predominately Muslim and Buddhist and includes; Tibet and China bordering Pakistan.  Dennis, his daughter who is 16, and one other team member from Wisconsin will travel by plane then by train under a tourist visa carrying Gospel literature.  They deliver this literature by night, door to door until sun rise when they board a bus and as doors begin to open and every recipient picks up this “mail” and reads it. None are seen discarded.  By day they witness one-on-one on buses and trains.  As an outsider and an ambassador for Christ, Dennis' shares a reality foreign to these peoples.  They can hardly comprehend that he has 12 children in the context of the One Child policy of their country.  Imagine how they will respond when they comprehend that God loves them, that He has the answer to our sin problem, His son Jesus Christ!

“I am this day four score and five years old.  As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, to go out, and to come in.  Now therefore give me this mountain, “    - Caleb, the son of Jephunneth the Kenezite
