In fact it's brought her around the world and back again.

To help kick-off her new mission with China Outreach Min- iStries, Magnus will bring a bit of the Chinese ambience and culture to the area during a Luncheon in Little China fundraising experi- ence. The fundraiser to help kick- start Magnus' ministry will be held on May 6 at noon at the Cavalier Baptist Church in Cavalier. A lunch of soup and breadsticks, bars and coffee will be served within a set- t'mg that will give attendees the over food. essence of the Chinese culture.

While Magnus was serving over- seas, Chinese students and scholars were coming to the United States to study in the Americar/university system. "There are over 300;000 Chinese students and scholars studying in the United States each year and their numbers are rapidly multiplying," said Magnus. As Magnus learned of the mag- nitude of numbers of Chinese stu- dents in United States she also discovered China Outreach Min- istries whose work focuses on giv- ing Christ to China's future leaders through a campus ministry staff who share the love and truth of Je- sus Christ With .Chinese students while they study in America. 'It's a revolving door as they come here to study and then return home. God has provided a window of time to share the Gospel with them while they are here," she says. It was a ministry that was the perfect fit for Magnus. This fall she will be launching a new ministry in Grand Forks, ND, focusing on the Chinese students attending the Uni- versity of North Dakota.

Her ef- forts will be engaged in building personal relationships and intro- ducing the Gospel through Bible studies in English. "As it becomes more difficult for Westerners to live in the current en- vironment of China this is a way for the Chinese people to learn of Christ, come to know Him, and grow in Him," says Magnus. It is her hope and that of China Outreach Ministries that many of these stu- dent believers will return to China as ambassadors of the Gospel, and through their professional posi- tions, impact China's future for Christ. "I never realized there were so many Chinese students right down the road in Grand Forks," said Magnus. "God works in such amaz- ing ways. I have the chance to serve the Chinese people in loving, hands- on ways, leading them to faith in Christ, teaching and discipling them, and equipping them to ef- fectively live out their faith in eir families, communities and profes- sions." Magnus is also passionate about finding ways to help people in all pockets of North Dakota get in- volved in giving Christ to China's future leaders. "'So many of the Chi- nese students and scholars feel lost and alone in a new country," says Magnus. "There are so many prac- tical and spiritual ways for people to get involved and help make a dif- ference in this new intemational out- reach program being opened in this region." The Luncheon in Little China fundraiser is open'to the public and all ages are welcome. A free-will donation will be taken for the lunch and to help launch Magnus' new ministry in her own Midwestem backyard.
