An Asian Harvest$15.00
Leaving his home in New Zealand at age 16, Paul Hattaway found himself in Australia – homeless, hungry and lonely – sleeping atop the roof of a public bathroom. “A waste of oxygen” was his high school principal’s assessment of the lad.
After a fellow factory worker helped Paul to find faith in Christ, the young wanderer quickly became convinced that God was calling him to China. In 1988, Paul arrived in Hong Kong with nothing more than a backpack, a single contact, and $50 in his pocket. While there, he began to work as a Bible courier, carrying hundreds at a time across the Chinese border and under the noses of the guards.
Today Paul Hattaway leads Asia Harvest, the ministry he founded, which supports thousands of indigenous missionaries and has supplied over ten million Bibles to China, and millions more to Christians throughout Asia.
An Asian Harvest is his astonishing story.
