Tongzhou: Beijing Deputy Center In 2012, at the 11th Party Congress in Beijing, the Beijing Municipal Committee decided to build a fully functional Beijing Deputy Center in Tongzhou. This is a major strategic decision: package Beijing into a cosmopolitan city with lavish Chinese characteristics to help promote the scientific development of the capital. Shifting some of its administrative functions out of the city center will enable Beijing to address her “urban ills” by better spatial restructuring and redeveloping the city. […]

China News & Prayer (2018.12.23-31)

I have listened to the lectures broadcast on radio since I was 18 years old. The Radio Liangyou’s lecture series have equipped me with the necessary knowledge I need to serve people during the past 30 years. One of my co-workers (she is a graduate from the Liangyou Theological Seminary) introduced this learning program to me. I was so happy and I registered. I paid full attention listening to every lecture and would repeatedly listen to the important parts over […]

Taking Care of Mother “I am 62 years old, born in the countryside. When I was six, my mother got an eye disease and got blinded. That day onwards, I became mother’s white cane, taking her everywhere. At the beginning of her blindness, mother was thwarted and always in bad mood. Since then, I learned to be independent and strong; learned to take care of her life, to cook and make noodles. I started elementary school at nine and knew […]

China News & Prayer (2018.12.09-15)

I can Read “I am 73 years old. I have never studied in a school. I am illiterate. I even do not know the characters of my name. I can only listen to sermons when I attend Sunday services. I do not know how to sing hymns. Once I heard a pastor saying in his sermon that Jesus cured a blind man of Jericho. Jesus was quoted as speaking to him, ‘Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.’ The […]
