"In March 1924 I was invited together with more than thirty preachers, Chinese and Western, from all churches in the city, to go and take part in an evangelistic campaign at an army camp farther south. It was the first time that I had joined workers from all the churches. Unhappily the things I saw and heard caused me great anxiety (lit. headache and heartache). A few amongst these preachers made a good impression, but for the most part they were truly unworthy to be called servants of God. As a result of the six days' evangelism there were more than 3,000 baptized. But it was apparent by careful observation that only a few of them really repented and trusted in the Lord. On the day when they all met enthusiastically for the baptismal ceremony I could not bear to be a spectator, and I returned by train to the city. This experience made me recognize all the more clearly the corruption, the emptiness and poverty of the churches in China. It stirred me to give myself more enthusiastically to the work of the Lord."~Wong Ming-Dao from A Stone Made Smooth.
