China’s Migrants and Ministry

I have recently read an interesting article about the number of internal migrant workers in the People’s Republic of China. In the article, “China’s Migrant Workers at Record High” (July 26, 2010), a Chinese government report estimates that there are 211 million migrant workers in China.

Read here about the millions who have left their homes to wander the nation in order to find gainful employment to better provide for their families.

Ministering to the nation’s migrant worker force could be a tremendous ministry platform for the sharing of Jesus Christ.

Note: I took the above picture in 2008 through a fence surrounding a construction site in the town centre of a major city in Southwest China. The workers live, sleep, and eat on the construction site.
