Where are the Churches?

Chinese Church Voices is a weekly column of the ChinaSource Blog providing translations of original writing by Christians in China. The views represented are entirely those of the original author; inclusion in Chinese Church Voices does not imply or equal an endorsement by ChinaSource.


This map was posted on the Weibo page of Chinese Christian Digital Media, with the following notation: "On the Baidu maps site, if you type in 'church' and do a search, you get this map. Think about the past 100 years. Western missionaries received a call, and through much suffering, gave their lives to irrigate this hard and rocky soil. Every Christian should think about this. Because of the persevering love of God, the Chinese people have a beautiful future."
