BTJ has been doing humanitarian projects in Western China since 1996. In the Bible, not only did Jesus look after the spiritual needs of the people around Him, but He also looked after their physical needs.
Since 1996, BTJ has built more than 200 hundred primary schools in China for tens of thousands of children. In these schools we are able to share the Gospel.
It is evident that Jesus cared for the sick so much that He often times healed them even when the timing was not perfect for His mission. He is the compassionate Healer. In this light, we continue following in His footsteps and serve those who are sick. That is why BTJ has built over 100 medical clinics and provided training for hundreds of doctors, nurses, and medical staff to care for the sick, nurse them, and bring them back to health.
The overwhelming majority of the medical clinics that BTJ has built are in Western China; home to 4/5ths of the unreached people groups who have not yet heard the Gospel. The majority of the minority groups who live in Western China are Buddhist and Muslim.
This year, in light of the global pandemic, BTJ is continuing to serve the sick in the unreached areas of China. Because of the recent crackdowns in China, BTJ has had to change methods in how the support of health care is being done.
For 2021, BTJ will run a clinic where all of the staff are Chinese missionaries. They will provide services for poor areas that do not have access to medical care. The medical staff will not only provide basic health care services, but will also share the Gospel and demonstrate the power of prayer. BTJ plans to provide $50,000 USD for this effort this year.
BTJ is also continuing to work together with Tenzin Lahkpa. Tenzin is a former Tibetan monk who studied under the Dalai Lama and his amazing, bloody journey of how he went from being a teacher of Buddhism to a servant of Christ can be found here.
Today, Tenzin shares the Gospel with Tibetans who are in need of medical care. BTJ will provide $10,000 USD for this effort.
