Ming Wei* is a firm believer in the power of prayer. When she moved to her husband’s hometown eight years ago, she began to pray for the opportunity to make a difference in the city of 50,000 with only two Christian churches but countless temples.

Two years later, the opportunity to work with children provided the perfect chance. Wei and others taught Bible stories and songs and held camps and other activities to share Jesus’ love with the children and their families.

People slowly came to faith, and the need for a church became a reality. The believers began the process to obtain government approval to start a church, which required having a minimum of 21 people attend a meeting.

As the day drew near, only 17 people had committed to come, and Wei spent time praying whether to cancel the meeting.

She heard God ask, “If 17 people are gathered together to worship Me, is that not worthy of a meeting? Is it not enough to come together to pray and worship even if you do not have 21 people?”
