Location: Northeast China
Status: Interns with OGTC
Can you imagine a doctor walking into the surgery room and telling you, the patient, that he has never done this type of surgery before and in reality he has never done any surgery before? But he reassures you that he has read all the books and got all A’s in his classes. I bet that you would be gone in a second. But that seems like the way we do missions. We send out a missionary to raise money and go overseas to see if he can make it or not. What a joke! What if we had system or training that would prepare the student by means of a type of internship?
Well we do! To be able to study at the Our Generation Training Center each student must study on field.
Ben and Crystal have been living in Harbin, China for the past two months. Ben has assuredly gathered that he will be a church-planting missionary to the country of China. He has studied and trained here in Georgia but in order to fulfill his requirements at the OGTC he needs to train for the field on the field. Ben moved his wife and child to Harbin in June of 2012 and currently lives in Harbin. During his stay in China, Ben is learning the Mandarin language and working with Chinese people to reach them with the Gospel.
Ben has an excellent opportunity to try his skills before he journeys out onto deputation. If you would like to see what Ben has been learning and keep up with him please visit his blog (http://sinoproject.org/blog/.
) Please be praying for this wonderful couple as they seek to fulfill God’s will for their lives by reaching Our Generation with the gospel.
