A 6.5-magnitude earthquake jolted Ludian County of Zhaotong City in southwest China's Yunnan Province, with a depth of 12 kilometers. Because of the large magnitude and the shallow focal depth,as well as the dense population and the poor building anti-seismic capacity, hundreds of people were killed and thousands were injured. This is the strongest earthquake in 14 years in this area.
Our partner Pastor Meng rushed to the stricken area. He visited the injured in hospitals and brought humanitarian aids to the needy.
A supporter who has been supporting us for years faithfully is retiring from paid employment. He sends us this letter with a donation. We thank God for our faithful supporters for their generous gifts which enable us to partner with the Chinese House Church in the BTJ vision and in the advancement of the Kingdom in the unreached land. We wish this particular supporter a happy retirement. May God richly bless him and his wife for years to come.
