Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan, April 8-17

Rice Terraces in Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan, China

There will be much more to say about our trip to Yunnan this past week and a half with Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship, but for now, I am left reflecting on these idyllic scenes that we captured with our camera, and realizing the harsh lives that belie their beauty and placid exterior. We were given the opportunity these past few weeks to fellowship with Dai, Wa, Lahu, Jinpo, and Lisu minority Christians in Lincang prefecture, to see the humble churches that these people have constructed with their own hands, to hear their stories of their faith, and their dreams for the future.

May God sustain them in the midst of struggles I can hardly imagine. May God hear their prayers for not only buildings and financial needs, but for encouragement, training, and stamina to carry the light to others. And may they hear our words of thanksgiving, Samo (Lisu language for thank you ), Bu e (Lahu), Ding ba so (Wa), and Jing Ju ge ba (Jingpo), for the way they have shared the light of Christ with us, echoing for a long time to come.
