On April 10, 2018, a three-person delegation from the Bible League International, including President Jos Snoep, visited the CCC&TSPM.

Rev. Shan Weixiang, vice-president of the CCC, praised the ministry's positive attitude to the Chinese church after its first visit paid in 2015 and was grateful for its support to the Bible ministry of the church in China. He added that rumors that China would ban all Bible sales and falsify the holy book were fake news and they might be slanderous misrepresentations of China's banning online retailers from selling the Bible. Actually, believers could still get access to the Bible inside the church.

President Jos Snoep said that he knew more about the Chinese church after the two-year-long cooperation with the latter and would show more respect to the church in China.

Esther Lam, the ministry's director of East Asia, introduced the organization's main ministries to the Chinese side.

The delegation also visited the Shaanxi CCC&TSPM.

 According to the official website of the Bible League International, it serves the under-resourced Church globally through the provision of Bibles, biblical resources, and training to transform lives worldwide.

Having been run for over 75 years, now it serves in six regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, and North America. Its ministry programs include Project Philip evangelistic and discipleship Bible study; Bible-based Literacy; and Church Planter Training.
