Miss Grace Ho, Missionary to Thailand from China

I remember as a child praying for the Country of China. We know the Lord answers prayer but always trust that though we may sometimes not see the answers now, we will all share the blessings of seeing the fruit of our prayer in the bliss of heaven. China has been under a totalitarian Communist government that has oppressed Christianity resulting in amazing church growth and we are aware of the fact that there are literally millions of Christians nationwide. While China is still a great and vast mission field, we know that God's people wherever they are will obey the Lord's great commission to preach the gospel to the "uttermost parts of the earth." Recently Fundamental Baptist churches in Hong Kong, now part of the vast nation of China, have gathered together their resources to obey the Lord and send forth a missionary to Thailand, Miss Grace Ho. Grace was born inland China and moved to Hong Kong with her family and has lived in China for many years. Grace was challenged with the need of preaching the gospel in Thailand and has joined our band of missionaries as the first Missionary of the Hong Kong Association of Baptists for World Evangelism, and is presently doing language study in Thai language. Here she is joining Gail and I in a photo at the PABWE mission retreat.
