“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19 (NIV)

This is the great commission, and also the last words of Jesus Christ on earth before his ascension. These were also one of the last lines of Jesus in the movie Risen, which TWR screened for the movie event this year.

More than 900 supporters of the SON-Lift project came to enjoy the movie at Shaw Theatres Lido. The SON-Lift project is TWR’s strategy to share the gospel with two-thirds of China’s unreached people groups (UPGs). The Chinese ministry team has produced programs in the first three languages to reach 40 UPGs.The money raised through the event will allow the team to produce programs in 12 languages to reach another 65 UPGs with the gospel! Isn’t it amazing to be a part of this?

Indeed the movie, which portrayed the period between the crucifixion and ascension of Jesus told through the eyes of a non-believer, brought the pages of the Bible to life.

Some of the comments we heard from our supporters were:

  • “The movie was so inspirational!”
  • “I was touched and remembered what Jesus did for me.”
  • “I found affirmation that this is indeed the season of my life to preach the gospel.”

One of our staff would like to share this with you: “I watched the movie Risen twice and I have many favorite scenes. One of them is when Simon Peter and the disciples failed to catch any fish the whole night at the sea. Then when daybreak came, a stranger at the shore called to Peter and asked him to ‘try the right side again.’ Sure enough, this time they hauled in a net full of fish. They realized it was Jesus!

“Lord, may you give me such spiritual sensitivity to recognize your voice and such quick obedience to follow your word, even when it sounds contrary to my logic and past experience.”

Once again, thank you for the part you play in reaching the UPGs in China for Christ. We hope to see you at TWR’s movie event in 2017!
