Reflecting on his meetings with Adventist believers in China, Paulsen said, "Last Sabbath we had the privilege to visit Shenyang and worship with one of our church's congregations, where twenty years ago we had less than 50 members. Today, that Seventh-day Adventist community numbers 7,000 and we have the largest Protestant church in the city, seating 3,000 members. It was a wonderful Sabbath," he said.
"All of this testifies to freedom, while at times elusive and difficult to exercise, but finally expresses major changes happening in China, and I praise the Lord for that and I am very, very thankful."
The Seventh-day Adventist delegation visited four Adventist congregations, as well as the national and local Christian Councils/Three-Self Patriotic Movement in Shanghai, Wuxi, Shenyang and Beijing and two regional seminaries, Northeast and Yangjing. In China, there are nearly 400,000 Adventist believers among the estimated 20 million Christians.
