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.

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!

Running for refugees: Bonita Choi in Namibia | Photo: BonitaHello!

I don't know about you but I have been captivated by the media coverage of yesterday's 40th Anniversary of man's landing on the moon.  The courage and dedication of the astronauts boggles my mind.  Recently however, I got to witness astronaut-like dedication in a brave young volunteer who deliberately chose a tough road - actually, a tough run across the second oldest desert in the world!  Meet Bonita Choi, the 25 year old financial analyst from Hong Kong who completed a seven-day, 250km endurance run in May so that she could help the helpless!

Xiao Shan Never Hits Herself Now

Here's more good news for you about our little girl, Xiao Shan, who was generously given two cochlear implants (see Xiao Shan's Story).  On Sunday June 21st, she came to my church which is near the water, where she enjoyed the scenery and the sea breeze which she doesn't have in Xining.  We all prayed for her because she'll be going to Beijing today, July 7th, to begin two years of speech therapy!
