This summer, 13 children from our Guangling and Fuzhou Children’s Homes will be traveling to churches in the US to meet their sponsors, present a special program consisting of traditional Chinese dance, singing, and personal testimony. The performance ranges in length from 30 minutes to one hour depending on availability. The purpose of this tour is to put a face to missions and to share the plight of orphaned and needy children. Our tours in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 were a huge success and many of our orphans gained sponsorship.
Please consider being part of this special experience – for the Angels, and your friends, family, and organization. Hosting can range from providing a venue for them to perform, to offering them one or more meals or a place to rest their heads for a night or a weekend. We are specifically looking for churches and host families in the areas of Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio.
If you know or belong to any churches in these areas, and would like to invite these children to present our ministry, please mail the form below and all donations to Living Hope International, c/o China Angels Tour, PO Box 183, Fort Washington, PA 19034, or contact Lynn Huang at 215-540-8810 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your help! We trust you will be blessed for having the privilege of meeting these children face to face.
There are many ways you can get involved in this wonderful program–
- Invite the orphan group to perform in our church
- Make a financial contribution toward travel expenses
- Donate a gift card (Wal-Mart, Target, Gas Card, McDonald’s, etc.)
- Sponsor a meal or lodging for the Angels Tour group
- Sponsor an activity/outing for the kids on tour (i.e. bowling, sporting event, movie, etc.)
- Help spread the word by hanging posters in your community
Last Wednesday, Guangling welcomed the first snow of 2015. On Saturday, uncle Liang took children playing outdoor. They were so excited walking in the white snow, making snowballs, and playing snow fights. They really enjoyed a white weekend with a lot of laughs!
