As 2016 comes to a close and we welcome in 2017, East Gates has much to be grateful for and much to reflect upon. Thanks to your invaluable partnership, once again we have been able to touch the lives of countless Chinese for God’s Kingdom.

Some of the blessings cover topics such as: Knowing Your Purpose, Freedom from the Fear of Man, Sound of Heaven, Kingdom of Peace, Seeing God's Fingerprints and more...
