Celebrating 150 Years of God’s Faithfulness
OMF International was founded as the China Inland Mission on June 25, 1865. It was then that James Hudson Taylor knelt upon the beach at Brighton, England, and “prayed for twenty-four willing, skillful labourers” to reach the inland provinces of China.
Today OMF International is a diverse evangelical mission agency of more than 1,400 workers from 30 different countries. We continue to press on to know the Lord and make Him known among the peoples of East Asia.
We seek to glorify neither OMF International nor Hudson Taylor, but the Lord our God for His faithfulness. Yet we look forward to seeing the Lord raise up a new generation of missionary workers in our midst.
It is a special time to remember what God has accomplished through His servants in reaching East Asian peoples, to rejoice in seeing God raise up men and women through whom He has touched millions of lives for eternity, and to renew our commitment to Him and His mission in East Asia.
For 150 years we have seen God raise up men and women through whom He has touched millions of lives for eternity. Hudson Taylor said “God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply.” This has not changed. We will praise Him for all that is past and trust Him for all that is to come.
We wish to thank you for your partnership in ministry over the years. And we look forward to working with you to see what God will do in the future as East Asia’s peoples are reached for His glory.
