After an emotional week of services and powerful message by Jake Taube in Monday nights special service, we bought tickets to fly back to America where will regroup and try to re-enter China on a new passport.
Originally we had plans next year to visit churches looking for new support for our own independent church planting ministry in China. But it looks like we are advancing those plans. We will at least spend a couple months in the States depending on circumstances.
So if your church would be interested in having us on such a short notice, please contact me by email.
We would love to spend time to get to know you and share our heart to serve the Lord Jesus in China. Regardless if we are able to regain entry into China (though gut is telling me we will), we will move on to set up a church planting ministry where Chinese people and language is the majority, a Taiwan being first on the list.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers, love, and support. We “get” to!

If you’ve ever wanted to see what true biblical missions is; well, here it is! These men of God are evidence that the Great Commission of Christ not only is applicable to today, but priority! Though they will be expelled from China, they leave behind men that are trained to continue the work of God. Would you consider having them come by and sharing what God has done with your church family? It is an eternal investment worth making!
Praying for you and the Lord’s direction in your ministry. Rachael Mangum
My name is Tim Eisaman and I was part of a World Race team that spent a month with Jake, Steph, Mark, and Natasha in October of 2012. I can’t begin to express how much I enjoyed that month of my trip and how much I learned. Im currently a youth leader and pastors son at a church in western New York and would love to have you guys stop by if you’re up my way. There’s plenty of places for you to stay and plenty of Buffalo Wings to eat 🙂 Let me know if the Lord takes you up in these parts because I would love for you to stop by. Constantly praying for you all.
