If this was true:
1. Churches and Mission Committees would not only be investing $100 a month, they would raise untold thousands to take advantage of the opportunity to get a clear gospel witness to the masses who never heard.
2. This opportunity does exist through Internet Evangelism! Sites can be developed that will receive traffic from those who have not had a clear Gospel Presentation in their entire life. Links and information for those interested in Christianity could be provided. The Bridge Site Strategy of Internet Evangelism shares ways of getting the gospel out to the masses by providing information people are looking for. This is important and strategic because one can have a nice website but if noone visits it, it's of no value. I believe effectively developing this Bridge Strategy and providing easy ways for Christians to get involved will be an important niche for our ministry. Please see http://bridgesites.org and the article on Chinese Websites at http://fishblog.org . This is similar to Paul sharing the gospel in the Marketplace of Athens (Paul and Myspace) or a missionary passing out tracts in a strategic area.
www.truthmedia.com describes the Web Ministry Process in the following steps: 1) Traffice comes to the website. 2) Visitor reads articles that share the gospel. 3) Engages with community through chat or mentoring. 4) Makes a decision, followup, and joins the ministry team.
3. Internet Evangelsim is far superior than Billboards or even broadcasting methods of sharing the gospel! Internet Evangelism provides two-way interaction! In the privacy of one's home specific questions can be answered, specific needs can be addressed and prayed for.
"The harvest is plenteous but the laborers are few." Let's pray to the Lord of the Harvest, that He will send laborers into His Harvest field.

ps - I am aware that there are some Internet restrictions/challenges in China, yet I believe a great gospel witness could go forth... The larger point I am trying to make is that Internet Evangelism is an exciting, innovative and inexpensive way to help get the GOOD NEWS to the masses of the world that have not had a clear gospel witness.
