‘Migration is one of the great global realities of our era.’ Chinese in Kansas. Japanese students in Oxford, migrant workers in Hong Kong. Whether voluntarily or involuntarily, East Asians are moving across geographic borders, and the global church is reaching out to them. For those who come to faith, there are challenges they need to be prepared for when they return home, but they have the potential to be a global, mobile mission force, living for Christ and sharing their faith wherever they live.

Find out more about these movements and how you can pray with us for East Asians away from home and those returning home through these infographics.
