Groundbreaking ceremony for Christian senior home at month’s end

By March 4, 2009

China (MNN) — At the end of this month, a church in Hangzhou supported by China Partner will see a long-held dream take baby steps toward its fulfillment. On March 30, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held to mark the commencement of Hangzhou Christian Senior Home's second phase of construction.

"I was reminded of several of our partners who made a donation to help with this project last year," said China Partner President, Rev. Erik Burklin, after receiving an invitation to the home's groundbreaking ceremony. China Partner gathered donations from several associates last year, and the gift was hand-delivered by Dr. Werner. "[Rev. Gu] was visibly moved by the generous support."

The home will provide care and ministry for the elderly. Several years ago, Reverend Joseph Gu shared his dream of building a Christian senior home next to the church with China Partner's founder, Dr. Werner Berklin. The "Senior Project" has been ongoing, supported by China Partner while funding efforts continued. You could support the project by praying with your church or visiting China Partner's Web site to learn more.
