With the Spring Festival approaches, Jilin churches' staff visited more than 200 believers who were old, sick, or extremely poor.
Practicing the Lord’s command of loving each other, the Spring City Christian Church in Changchun City focuses on the visitation ministry. However, the church is difficult due to the pandemic epidemic under the church building.
Senior Pastor Yuan Jun said to the visitation co-workers: "We must spend the contribution on the congregation, sending love and warmth to them". The service participants included: the pastoral staff, each ministry leader of the church, leaders and visitation co-workers of all meeting sites. Door to door visits was made to those who were needy, suffering from cancer, ill for a long time, bedridden, elderly and sick who were absent in the church for many years, retired pastors and deacons over 70 years old. As the on-site gatherings were suspended due to COVID-19, pastor Yuan Yangle had a new idea. To maintain the faith life of those who couldn’t listen to the online sermons, they presented Bible players to them, which contains the Bible reading, sermons, hymns, and devotions.
At the same time, they also purchased other practical items, including warm quilts, hardcover blankets, and soy milk powder.
The believers who received these gifts were deeply moved and very happy, especially for the elderly without smartphones, as they can listen to the sermons and hymns in the Bible players at any time.
