(China)–We begin today in China where the SARS virus is no longer causing delays for Bethany Christian Services. Bethany places dozens of Chinese children each year in homes of loving families in the United States. Bethany’s Bill Blackmire says the China program is back up and running. “In the past two weeks, about 30 of our families have received referrals from China and will be traveling in the next several weeks to go pick up their children. Back on May 15th, China suspended giving referrals and invitations for travel to their country due to the SARS epidemic.” Blackmire says placing children in homes is kingdom work. “When a family adopts a child, they cloth the child, feed the child and do all those things, but they also do eternity work with that child, and expose them children to the Gospel and raise them in a Christian environment is just an excellent thing to do with these children.”
