Pastors received financial donations in two Fujian churches.
In Chengguan Church, Wuping, Longyan, Fujian, on January 3, a service was held to celebrate its relocation. At the same time, 47 pastors from west Fujian were granted money by the chairman of Fujian Yueshan Landscaping Co., Ltd., (transliteration) according to Longyan TSPM.
Two days later, staff from Kuai'an Church in Fuzhou and the landscaping company went to Chengguan Church in Fu’an, Ningde City, providing financial funds to pastors in the mountainous areas and others from Fu’an City. They also traveled to three other places in four days to donate to 96 pastoral co-workers and volunteer pastors. Nearly 170,000 yuan was distributed in total, according to Ningde CC&TSPM.
Rev. Lin Xinning, the senior pastor of Kuai’an Church, stated that they planned to use one-tenth of annual offerings as a special fund for pastors in mountainous areas, who got meager salaries but still served the Lord faithfully.
