Something wonderful in the Christian sense is happening in Tibet, a region in China considered as the highest in the world and the home of Mount Everest, earth's highest mountain rising more than 29, feet above sea level.

Overpeople have heard the gospel and decided to follow Jesus in Tibet, according to church leaders in that region. Rather, week after week, it is the followers of Jesus who have proven the test of time, sacrificed their own lives to serve and been the hands and feet of Jesus.
