International Missions Study: Beijing


International Missions Study—An annual study, usually in early December, that ties in with the Week of Prayer for International Missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® for International Missions. Posters and prayer guides for the week of prayer and offering are available through your state WMU office.

Suggested dates: December 2–9, 2012

This year, our focus is on Beijing, China.

To international tourists, Beijing is an amazing mix of ancient palaces and great walls, modern architecture and technology, fascinating sights and smells. For millions of Chinese in other parts of the country, Beijing is the pride of their cultural heritage and the hope of their rising future—a jewel to show off to the rest of the world.

More than 22 million men and women simply call Beijing home. A bustling metropolis and center for politics and education, yes, but also a tough place to struggle through massive social change.

Learn more about the fascinating city of Beijing in the International Mission Study 2012. The resources listed below are available and can be ordered on or by calling WMU Customer Service at 1-800-968-7301.

It’s that time of year again! Children are back in school, wide-eyed young adults are on college campuses, and those of us in leadership in the church realize a new church year is upon us. Hopefully your WMU® leadership team has already met and developed a calendar of great missions learning experiences for all ages as well as ministry projects that will impact your community and beyond in the coming year.
