In China & Uzbekistan, and other "closed countries" as the Family refers to them, some of the Family members in the unit teach English and have visas to that effect. Their clown and music show activities are presented to authorities as a volunteer social work which they do on the side.

When I was in the group in a Muslim region of the Balkans, we did a lot of such shows, and the salvation prayer followed a skit we did about a "Prince" who represented Jesus, and the "King" of course was God the Father, the prayer did not even include the name Jesus. Everyone who prayed was counted as "saved".

Also, any members who to go to places that are designated as a "closed country" need permission from Fam leadership.
