Joint with college students, a Fujian Christian service center paid a visit to a local service organization for autistic youth and families, carrying out exchanges.
Volunteers from Xiamen Ren’ai Love Service Center and Jimei University Chengyi College in Xiamen, Fujian, held an activity of sharing Christmas lunch in the service organization on December 23. During the dinner, they sang songs and played musical instruments for the special children.
"Before the event, knowing nothing about autism, I searched relevant information on the Internet. In close contact with them, I find that some children are very quiet and meditative when communicating with others. Actually, they are gifted in some aspects... In the process of communication, not only do we bring them fun through playing games, but they also teach us a lot of knowledge and insight that we can’t get in the university, letting me understand responsibility and love. With universal love and non-aggression, we should love each other, as God loves us,” said Chen, a student who participated in this Christmas activity.
