In 1865, Hudson Taylor founded the China Inland Mission and prayed for “Willing, skilful workers” to join him. With just £10, and “all the promises of God” he prayed consistently, and God met all his needs.
In 1866 Hudson Taylor, his wife, children and 16 missionaries left England for China.
Hudson believed the gospel would only take root if missionaries were willing to identify with the culture of the people they wanted to reach.
Now as OMF, we believe that too. 150 years on, our work continues with the same pioneering spirit. The same vision. The same desire to see an authentic Christian witness flourish across East Asia. In partnership with local churches, worldwide.
