Imagine picking up your phone to listen to worship music. You open your Spotify or Apple Music app, search for your favorite Christian artist or band, but nothing is there. This is the reality for millions of believers and non-believers alike in China.
There are an estimated 130 million Christians in China. They have limited to no access to worship music, a Bible, or even a church. And right now China’s borders, both literally and figuratively, are closed tighter than they’ve been in years.
While traditional ministry is becoming increasingly difficult, we need innovative new ways to reach places we could never go “in-person”.
And that is why we are excited to announce the release of our latest missions project: a new Mandarin Chinese worship album, titled “Here in Your Love (在你愛中)”, releasing internationally on JULY 5, 2020!
“I have recently started meeting weekly with 4 Chinese students… They visited my church today for our monthly women’s breakfast and meeting. They loved the music and I was then able to tell them about and show them Here in Your Love so that they could hear worship sung in their native language. They were so excited! The project is reaching Chinese in the US with God’s love.”
This studio album was recorded out of Faith Family Church in Hong Kong in October 2019. The Chinese vocals are sung mostly by Naiah Fischer, our son and worship leader. Two professional Christian music producers from Atlanta (Spenser Boice and Austin Ludwig) funded this entire project and flew to Hong Kong just to record and produce the album.
Just one week before recording, Hong Kong endured one of it’s “most violent days in history” during the intense protests. Our plans to record were almost postponed until 2020. Little did we know that COVID-19 would have most likely completely shut the project down indefinitely. We thank God for His supernatural timing!
This worship album can reach Chinese people in a unique way through streaming services in China and around the world—and it couldn’t have come at a better time!
Amidst the turbulence, pain, and uncertainty the world is facing right now, the only answer is the LOVE and GOODNESS of the Heavenly Father. With one original song and four covers, this album is centered around just that.
Here’s how YOU can help!
Our prayer is that this album would reach as many Chinese people as possible. And YOU can have a direct impact in that.
Streaming now makes up roughly 80% of worldwide music consumption. And when you stream, download, and add these songs to your playlists—streaming algorithms give more exposure to the music!
When the album goes live on July 5, would you help by doing these simple steps:
1. Stream the album
2. Add to one of your playlists
3. Add to your library & follow Faith Family Music
4. Share on social media
As we’re preparing to launch this project, please join us in a special prayer over this worship album:
“We pray that this worship album would reach people for Jesus all across the nation of China. That it will not be stopped, suppressed or removed from the streaming services due to censorship. And we pray for supernatural discovery… that new listeners would find it even if they weren’t searching for it. And most importantly, that people would be convicted by the Holy Spirit and drawn to salvation while listening to the songs.”
Thank you for standing together with us to reach the Chinese people! More to come soon on this exciting new missions project!
Blessings from Hong Kong,
Steve and Sharmin Fischer
