Restaurant Ministry Inc.
To preach the gospel to the Chinese restaurant industry in Australia
Restaurant Mission Inc (RMI) was established in Sydney in May 1988. The vision of the ministry is to preach the gospel to the Chinese restaurant industry in Australia. When the Sydney RMI was first established, the meetings were often held in the restaurants late at night. A deacon and co-workers committee was later established and RMI went to share their vision with different churches and brothers and sisters. They also started street evangelism events and mission trips. After more than 20 years, the RMI has greatly expanded the size of their ministry. In 2004, Pastor Steven Lai became a fulltime pastor at RMI. In 2007, Pastor Lai was sent to Melbourne to establish the Melbourne Evangelism Fellowship.

Living Spring Children’s Home
Quanzhou Living Spring Children’s Home (Fujian Province) was established in 2009 by the “Christian Concern for the Homeless Association” of Hong Kong. It is Fujian’s first children’s social welfare institution dedicated to ministering to homeless children. The Home currently hosts more than 20 children (8-14 years old) mostly from the poorer provinces such as Sichuan, Guizhou, and Xinjiang. Most of them became street children because their parents divorced and no one took care of them, or they were abused and ran away from home. Some were abandoned by their family or were subjected to trafficking. Living Spring aims to provide a warm home for street children, to help them lead a disciplined life and to give them non-formal primary school education. The ultimate aim is to help these street children escape homelessness, live well and grow. Living Spring is overseen by two Hong Kong couples and a group of mainland volunteers.
