Many years ago, while waiting for my flight back to Europe in the airport of the city Bangalore, India, I saw a group of Chinese nearby. Always interested in meeting Chinese, I approached them and was introduced to Bishop K. H. Ting, the patriarch of the Chinese Church. This propelled me at once to the top leadership of the Church in China. For some time I had prayed that the Lord would open the door to a teaching ministry in China, the land of my birth. “Please come visit me the next time you come to Nanjing,” he kindly invited me.
