God’s focus is resting on Asia and especially Russia, were God is changing hearts and preparing a generation to be open for His influence. I see a lot of communities that was overlooked as being insignificant and too small and now they are growing and developing and being self-sustainable, and without anybody noticing they are building their own sustainable economies.

I see a growth spurt in the tourism of Asia, small out of away places in Asia where tourist is not necessarily looking for well-developed resorts, but places that are more rural and less known.
I see them with their heads together plotting against the Asian people. They must not touch them. They have brought wealth to these countries along with their expertise. They must not try to oust the Chinese either because they are bringing progress to this middle belt of nations in Africa.
The small island south of India; Ceylon (Sri Lanka) has disappeared from everyone’s thoughts. Nobody thinks of them anymore. Once they were a force to be reckoned with in the area of imports and exports. There is going to be a disaster near the island, a shipwreck or an aeroplane crash something terrible is going to happen there. This will put Ceylon (Sri Lanka) back on the map, so once again others will see what is going on there.
There has been mismanagement and misuse of funds in the government. The people have seen it and they have tried to get the attention of the world because of this but no one has taken notice of them. This disaster will get the attention they need and they are going to be seen again as a grouping and as a people.
China is still going to be very closed. They are not going to give us a glimpse into what is going on inside China. They will continue to be a force to be reckoned with. They are involved in many different arenas like mining and export. Everything is about export for the Chinese. They are neglecting their own people in the push to export and bring money into the country to build infrastructure. The money they receive for infrastructure is not been used for what it is gathered in for. They are taking the actual money and they are reinvesting it because they want to do something big; something big like the space race. They are busy building something big and unique in China.
There have been forays into diplomacy with China. Others have tried to enter in but there has been such a wall between Eastern thinking and Western thinking, that the West still does not really have the key for China yet. The Lord will show specific people a subtle way to get into China. The Lord will use the gospel to reach the people. It is the gospel that is going to turn the hearts of the people back to something else besides their own nation and country. They have turned themselves and their nation into a god and they will see that there is another God. Only the gospel can set them free.
People are fearful of going into China with the gospel. There is an innate fear in Christians about China. They do not easily become missionaries to China. The Lord is busy dealing with that in people’s hearts and He is going to divinely call people to China. They are going to do simple things like teach cooking, sewing, English and maths. These simple things will bring the gospel in. They cannot enter China as preachers; they have to go in a different way, to be able to get the gospel to the Nation.
China is a sleeping giant that needs to be woken up and it will not awaken easily. Billboards and advertising cannot shout about this need to turn. It needs to be subtle and will take many years.
I heard music coming out of Russia. Many artists are gathering together and hearing something new, a new sound, not necessarily a Christian sound. They may be Christians but these musicians and artists will receive worldwide fame because of unique paint strokes, operas and symphonies. They will receive the world’s attention. Russia is seen as a rough country but out of this roughness will come this sophistication of music and art.
The Russian Government and leaders are in confusion. They are not sure where they should focus. Must they focus on manufacturing, sport or agriculture? This has caused much confusion. They decide on one area, talk about it and then push money into it. When it does not appear to work and does not bring in the income to feed the nation, they drop it and try something else. The nation has grown faster than the economy. There is a huge level of poverty in Russia, much more than we are aware of. There are people who are desperately poor, with one set of clothes and no food in the cupboard and no seed to plant in the ground. Seventy percent of the nation is desperately poor and that is also being hidden from those outside of Russia.
We need prayer warriors to pull them out of that poverty and give them Godly ideas, so that each person can become an entrepreneur like they do in the east. In Bangkok everybody has a job they all cook and feed each other, everyone is doing something. There is a hopelessness in Russia. They look around them and see nothing. No big city nearby just a small little village in a rural area and there is just a hopelessness that has descended over Russia that needs to be lifted and it can only be lifted by the entrance of the gospel.
Strategically, for Asia, the emphasis should be on spreading the Gospel. The church needs to pray for missionaries to go to Asia as it is a difficult arena. People need to ready themselves to go there just as the body of Christ needs to continue sending people into those areas. The poor will be an area of impact. This sounds foolish because our logic may say that reaching the influential people will facilitate reaching the poor versus going directly to the poor. The Lord wants to reach the poor and He will give us, as South Africans and many other pioneering nations the heart for the East. Take the simplicity of the Gospel into China. The African missionary work model of forty years ago needs to be applied here.
A sign for Asia will be the initiation of cleaning up of environmental pollution. Initially these may be small areas, but they are going to grow and expand as the actual gospel becomes prevalent in the entire region
of the Asian continent.
