John Birch was a Baptist missionary from Macon, Georgia who dedicated his life to the service of the Lord Jesus Christ through mission work in China. John Birch spread the gospel of Jesus Christ by perfectly blending with the Chinese people. He helped churches and won people to the Lord through his witnessing and gospel tract ministry. During World War II he served the US Army Air Force. Back then the legitimate Chinese government under Chiang Kai-shek was an ally of the US. In 1945 the Chinese communists brutally butchered John Birch to death because the communists hated Americans and Christians in particular. Now we want to ask you to pray for the persecutors. John Birch became the first casualty of the Cold War.
