The Rainbow Connection

Crystal and Jeff Kershaw live on the other side of the world from the Xining Children's Home, an orphanage that Christian Action co-manages on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau. Like many of you, the Kershaws have a deep sense of connection to the children in Xining.

Perspiration Pays Off!

My vision is to see every child in our orphanages provided with the same hope and future that I want for my own son. For that reason I thank Prof. Mark MacAlpine (above) and Bill Lake (below) who share the vision and went out to help make it happen! | Photo: M. MacAlpine Hi to you!

How inspired I am by our supporters!  So many of you volunteer your services in a wide variety of ways, and I'm so happy to tell you about two others who have energetically raised funds for Christian Action's work helping orphans in Qinghai, China.
