With the Spring Festival approaching, three churches in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region visited the believers in nursing homes, rural areas, and construction sites.
This year, Elder Chen Kaosi, chairman of the Beihai Three-Self Patriotic Christian Movement Committee, visited brothers and sisters over 80 years old, some over 90 years old. These believers live in the county town and some in the villages, including (Dongshan, Dangjiang, and Xiayang) village. The staff of the Hepu Church of Beihai City also showed concerns to the believers working on construction sites. The church's visitation and charity ministries carried on the Spring Festival eve for more than ten years.
Guangxi Beihai Christian Church, led by Pastor Zhang Yezhong, President of the Beihai Christian Council and director of the church, started the visit early on Saturday, January 30. They went to pray for a staff worker's grandmother to let her rest in peace, showing sympathy to more than a dozen church members at their homes. The team also sent holiday greetings to the elderly believers and teachers living in nursing home, Guiyang Market in Yintan Town, and Zhengtian Garden.
The church's staff workers in Changle Town, Hepu County, visited several elderly members in their 80s and 90s and impoverished believers. In particular, they sent gifts to a poor elderly male believer living alone with his four grandsons whose parents have passed away. The villagers watched them with envy as they received the food happily.
