Interesting statement on opening of China to missionary work

"On 12 March 1991 Elder Dallin H. Oaks, speaking at a BYU devotional, addressed the question of when China will be open for missionary work: "I state my belief that China is already 'open' – it is we who are closed. . . . We must understand their way of thinking, . . . observe their laws, and follow their example of patience. We must deserve to be their friends. . . . our Father in Heaven . . . will bring His purposes to pass in that great nation 'in his own time, and in his own way, and according to his own will'""

I got lucky to get called to the one mission open in China. But this makes me wonder if "their way of thinking" is really that much different than ours... Haha this will be interesting........
