Abstract

29 September 2006 God first gave the vision to the Chinese Church to take the Gospel 'Back to Jerusalem' in the 1940s. Now, there is exciting news to report as Christians in other parts of the world have grabbed the same vision and are making plans to send thousands of missionaries and evangelists from their nations also back to Jerusalem, where the Gospel first started. The Korean churches share in this great call to complete the Great Commission, believers in Taiwan have launched what they call 'Taiwan to Jerusalem,' a growing movement in Mozambique and other parts of southern Africa are mobilizing workers to take Christ's love and power northward through Africa 'back to Jerusalem,' and now the strong and large Church in Nigeria, West Africa, has announced their intention to launch 'Operation Samaria' - to send 50,000 missionaries through the Islamic nations of North Africa, all the way back to Jerusalem! This path will take them through many of the most unevangelized places on the earth, such as Morrocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Niger, Chad, Mali, Sudan, and Egypt. Isn't it wonderful to see how God is doing something mighty for His glory and kingdom in these last days? The following article by Timothy Olonade is from the Lausanne World Pulse:
