It is because of UBS that the Church in China has strengthened her friendship with churches around the world. — Minister Wang Zuoan, State Administration for Religious Affairs of China, http://www.sara.gov.cn/xwzx/xwjj/15255.htm and http://www.sara.gov.cn/xwzx/xwjj/15255.htm
Minister Wang Zuoan highlighted the close relationship the Church in China has established with UBS since the early 1980s. The growth of the Bible ministry of the Chinese Church is inseparable from the support given by members of UBS. — State Administration for Religious Affairs of China, http://www.sara.gov.cn/xwzx/xwjj/15255.htm and http://www.ubscp.org/minister-wang-zuoan-brazil/
I would also like to thank UBS. Through the faithful donation of paper to TSPM/CCC and printing machines to Amity, UBS has contributed to the success of the publishing and printing of Bibles in China. — Rev. Dr. Gao Ying, President of Yanjing Theological Seminary. Former Vice-President of NJUTS., http://www.ubscp.org/gaoying1/
I hope that UBS donors would continue to be concerned about the Church, the believers and the Bible ministry in China. Although China’s overall economy is growing and the Church is expanding, we have not yet arrived and there are still many poor people who need Bibles. — Elder Fu Xianwei, Chairman of National Committee of TSPM, http://www.ubscp.org/fuxianwei/
UBS is always willing to serve and work with the Church based on China’s needs.....I have come across many overseas Christian organizations and I think that many should follow UBS’s partnership model with the Church in China. — Elder Fu Xianwei, Chairman of National Committee of TSPM, http://www.ubscp.org/fuxianwei/
Some people wonder why the Protestant church in China is growing faster than the Catholic Church. I suspect the reason behind the Protestant Church growth is because she puts more emphasis on reading the Bible. — Bishop Aloysius Jin Luxian, http://www.ubscp.org/bishop-jin-luxian/
It was the United Bible Societies (UBS) who encouraged us to read the Bible more often and even urged us to organize Bible classes. — Bishop Aloysius Jin Luxian, http://www.ubscp.org/bishop-jin-luxian/

From September 16th to 20th, I, a 71 year-old, had the privilege of participating in a Bible Distribution Trip to China organized by the Bible Society of Singapore. Our mission was to distribute Bibles to various churches in the Yunnan mountainous area in China. Although our mission was tough, our work was a journey where we experienced God’s Grace daily. A brother-in-Christ asked me, “What were your thoughts on the trip?” My reply was, ‘I received much more than what I gave!” We went to Zhaotong City which was located in the heart of the northern Yunnan plateau, a gathering place for the Miao minority group. The Miao people lived in shabby houses where water and electricity are scarce. Read more [...]

SHAANXI: Many poor people in China have never been to school before. One 17 year-old girl from a rural area in Shaanxi province did not even know how to hold a pen, let alone write her name. Another elderly lady had problems knowing which public restroom to go into as she could not read the Chinese character for “male” and “female” written on the door of the cubicle. These real-life stories told to us by 24 year-old Bible School student Meng Juan were just some of many reasons why it was expedient to run a Scripture Literacy class at the local church.
