Moses sees the burning bush. He hears the voice of God and he goes to Egypt. But before Moses sees, hears and goes, God is already present – in Egypt too. God saw the need, heard the cries for help and came to save.

Patrick Fung

Patrick Fung

Patrick and Jennie Fung are the first Chinese to lead OMF International (OMF) – a global fellowship of Christians with a heart for East Asia. For over 150 years, OMF has been working alongside churches to spread the gospel to East Asia’s peoples.

Since 2006, Patrick has exercised operational and spiritual leadership in his role as General Director. Both Patrick and Jennie have a deep understanding of the church in China. Their experience with indigenous mission movements brings exciting insights into God’s work in the Middle Kingdom.

Come and be encouraged by Patrick and Jennie and hear what God has to say about missions today!

Nergui Ch.

Nergui Ch.

Nergui has led the Mongolian Mission Center (MMC) from 2011-2022. Founded in 1998, the center is committed to making the good news of Jesus Christ accessible to all ethnic Mongolians.

Get a glimpse of Nergui’s testimony as one of the first Mongolian Christian women to have lived and worked in China as well as her rich experience as a leader of a local mission movement in Asia.

Weltreise – an adventure

Before you know it, you’ll be in the middle of the action! Through actors and simple props, we transport you to other countries and let you experience the reality of, for example, refugees. You will be confronted with the darkness of this world and challenged to be a light.

Come along on this exciting, interactive and multifaceted journey through the world and experience different living conditions with all your senses. The Weltreise is in German and can be visited from the age of 13.

The Weltreise is offered three times, the places are limited. So sign up and book your spot!


We offer the Weltreise in cooperation with OM Switzerland. You can find more information about OM and the Weltreise on the OM homepage (Link).
