Today in Christian History – July 14

1857 – Forty-seven-year-old Ting Ang, a trader in Fuchau, China, is baptized on this day, the first Methodist convert in China.

When 47-year-old Ting Ang was baptized on this day, July 14, 1857, he was the first Methodist convert in China. He partook of the Lord’s Supper, the rite by which the Methodist’s remember Jesus. It was a significant breakthrough for the mission, and converts came more frequently after that. However, ten years later only 450 of Fuchau’s 600,000 people had become Christians.
