Staff outreach to the homeless
Two of our staff found the gentleman on the street in early April. He was disoriented, angry and homeless. Weeks of health care, rest, nutrition and a stable environment and schedule with us have helped tremendously. He was disoriented because he is borderline diabetic. Nutrition has stabilized this issue without a need for meds. He has had a hard life and has no one. Now he has a community and has surrendered his life to Jesus. He is illiterate and has begun to learn to read with us. In about three weeks he will begin vocational training online for Mandarin (reading and writing) and an apprenticeship with a cell phone repair small business we helped establish with another two men from the street years ago. They both were also illiterate and can begin to teach him this trade without needing to read much. Then as he becomes more literate, they will incorporate more into his training. We pay a nominal fee for the internship and his housing and food. He also needs a basic laptop for his lessons and training, as well as his own small toolbox of equipment.
The Young Woman
The young woman has been staying in our safe house since mid-April, as she continues to rest and heal before she can begin studying or working. For several years, she has wanted to be a special effects website designer and computer illustrator. She is very talented in illustration, but untrained. She would like to return to her village and work from there to make a living. Her schooling would last for 8-24 months, depending on the level of education she needs. She will be able to become certified, which is very important in China to be employable with a good wage.
Wen Liao Jia was 7 when she lost both her legs and all her fingers and part of one arm in a fire in her village home. She didn’t get medical care as she healed, so she had a lot of breathing and muscle challenges as she grew. Eventually, her parents abandoned her. We found her and brought her to our safe house. She is a growing Christian and a woman of prayer. She is seen here with one of our office staff who meets with her weekly for Bible study and counseling. May she have hope in Christ and cling to her promise of eternity in Heaven with God.
