Evangelism has always been on my heart and I have been preaching the gospel to overseas Chinese students and scholars since I was saved in 2002. I didn’t feel a strong burden for the people or church in China except for my family and friends since I didn’t live there. But at the Elijah List Conference in 2016 I heard Chuck Pierce talking about a visitation from the Lord. The Lord told him there would be a great revival in China and it would spread all over the Earth. I had read his book that shared the same story before I came to the conference as well. One day after the conference I was pondering what I had read and heard and suddenly I heard the Holy Spirit ask me, “What is a big revival? Immediately I replied, “I heard that in China one out of ten Chinese people is a believer, so I think China already has a big revival?” Then I heard the Holy Spirit ask me again, “How about two out of ten?” I was shocked, and I quickly calculated that two out of ten would be an additional hundred million people. I felt the Holy Spirit was challenging me to think bigger, but I don’t think he meant to stop at two out of ten. It could be three out of ten, four out of ten, or even five out of ten!
I also heard Bob Jones prophesy that in the end times there would be a harvest of a billion souls. Surely one or two of them could be Chinese. I knew it would not be possible to have a billion-soul harvest without China being included.
In addition to the Lord speaking to my heart about this burden, I also received many prophetic words about my calling to preaching gospel in China. I have no idea how this will happen, but He is the Lord and He is the master of the crop. My responsibility is to prepare myself the best I can.
