Lanzhou Church Mural by Parsat Lanzhou Church Mural by Parsat
The day my missions team left Lanzhou, we helped the local church start a wall mural in dedication of the passing of leadership from our overseas missionary to their own local leadership. The scene we envisioned was inspired specifically by Psalm 23 and Revelation 22. We helped start the painting after a week or so of planning.

About two months after we left, they finally finished their mural. This is the fruit of their labor. Our role as missionaries is much like the making of this mural: We come to lay the groundwork and train up faithful laborers and disciplemakers in themselves.

Pray for our brothers and sisters in Lanzhou, China.

This is really good! Very unique idea with the river flowing from the cross. Almost like it's representing life-giving water of God.

That is very beautiful! And it's very true. I once read somewhere that the aim of the missionary is to "work himself out of a job", i.e. to train local believers to take over. And that missionaries are like scaffolding which can be taken away (and put somewhere else!) when the building is done.
