For a long time, Zhao Yumei, a Wa ethnic minority believer, did not have a Bible in her own language and had some doubts about her faith that lingered on. The turning point in Zhao's journey of faith came when she finally received her first Wa Bible. As she delved into the pages of the Bible, its words, woven into the fabric of her native tongue, resonated deeply within her soul. She was captivated, and with every turn of the page, her faith grew stronger.
The Academy of Religion at the Minzu University of China (MUC, 中央民族大学) held its 5th annual Minzu Dialogue on October 25, 2023 with co-organiser United Bible Societies (UBS), returning to an in-person Dialogue after two years of holding it online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "Interpreting the Psalms in Our Everyday Life - Joys, Sorrows, and Hopes" was the theme of this year's Dialogue which saw esteemed scholars from China and UBS exchanging insights ideas and perspectives on the book of Psalms.

Thank God for the vibrant ethnic minority churches in China that continue to grow spiritually as they feed on the Word of God. Through the faithful perseverance of various Bible translation teams, a few ethnic minority groups now have the Bible in their own heart languages. For those who are illiterate, Scripture literacy classes help them to learn how to read so that they may grow in their faith through Bible reading.

On 23 Jul to 2 Aug 2023, Dr Bernard Low (Co-Director, Ministry) led a delegation from the United Bible Societies China Partnership (UBSCP) to visit our ministry partners in Beijing, Shandong, Nanjing, and Shanghai. They had many fruitful meetings exchanging updates and exploring how UBSCP can better support the churches in China. We thank God for these partnerships which are anchored in mutual respect and trust, and for the honour and privilege we have to serve the churches in China to carry out their God-given mission.
When Fang Ying decided to commit herself to serving the Lord in full-time ministry, she was met with various challenges. Turning to God as her anchor in those trying times, she persevered and enrolled at Anhui Theological Seminary to be trained as a preacher. As she delved into reading the Bible and using the Chinese Study Bible, which she had received from the seminary, with the support of the United Bible Societies, her understanding of the Scripture was enriched in ways she never imagined.
