Remembering Two BTJ Missionaries Martyred for Their Faith

When is the last time you heard of a missionary training school that has a requirement that their missionaries fill out a last will and testament?

All 80 missionaries in the missionary training school in China signed a document this week – a last will and testament. Three copies were made for each missionary: one for the Church, one for the family, and one for the missionary to keep for themselves.

Let us be joyful that the 80 Chinese missionaries have been found worthy to declare they will serve the Lord unto death, but let us pray that they stay strong in that mindset and live long lives that bear much fruit. This is reminiscent of the passages in Luke 14:28-33 which say we must count the cost before we follow Y’shua. Let us count the cost, accept our call, cry out, and join those who are willing to be martyred.

Around this time in 2017, two BTJ missionaries were killed by ISIS in Pakistan. Eugene Bach shared in light of this, “Today reminded me of the Chinese BTJ missionaries who gave their lives on the mission field preaching the Gospel message.” [pictured above]

I am a Messianic Jewish believer that felt the tug of the L-rd towards the unreached. I decided I would go to China. My love for the Chinese people grew while I was there, but when I learned of the Back to Jerusalem movement, I knew the L-rd wanted me to be proclaiming His gospel message to the unreached people between China and Jerusalem. Let’s unite and complete the great commission. We need to accept the challenge Jesus has given us so that we can feel the exhilaration of victory.
