A Double Rainbow Blessing!

In November 1997, shortly after Christian Action started serving in Qinghai, a beautiful baby girl was found on a road in Xining City East. Her name was Zhao Wenzhen (ๆ–‡็). She was taken to our Children’s Home and given a great deal of love and care. After she had also received surgery for a hip problem, she grew into a happy, intelligent, strong-willed toddler.

Our Vision is Spreading to England!

Hi again!

I've been away, first at a Board meeting of Christian Action U.K., followed by a refreshing holiday with my husband Marlon and son Danial. It brought back many memories of my earlier years in England.  I spent five years being educated there and a further three years in Liverpool, where I met Marlon and first began working for Vietnamese Boat People and the Chinese community.  It was just great this time to share a testimony of my ministry to the poor, especially in Qinghai, at the Liverpool Chinese Gospel Church.

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.

Out of Africa



Greetings!

I promised to tell you about how Christian Action serves desperate people who seek asylum in Hong Kong, so here's an example for you.  Some time ago Mary arrived on the doorstep of our Service Centre in Chungking Mansion, Kowloon, with two little girls clinging to her side. She was traumatized and in despair. The government militia in Congo, her home country, had detained and sexually abused her following the arrest and disappearance of her husband, who had participated in a national election. Mary knew no one in Hong Kong - but hoped that we could help.  We are actually the only drop-in service centre for asylum seekers and refugees in Hong Kong.
