Work Team Arrives in China

The Wisconsin work team will be using
their painting skills at Mrs. Ma's CP clinic 
A 13 member work team from Wisconsin landed in China today to begin 10 days helping at Children’s Hope projects. The team from Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Menomonee Falls will first be painting colorful childhood designs on the walls of a new orphanage in Luoning, Henan province, while also spending time playing with the Chinese orphans.
“They are God’s children who feel they have no hope and feel they are not loved,” said Pastor Rob Goodwin, Grace China Mission Team.

Next the team will travel to Jiaozuo, to also brighten the walls of Mrs. Ma’s Children’s CP therapy clinic. Poor families from across central Henan province, who have children with cerebral palsy, count on Mrs. Ma’s clinic for their children’s therapy and to learn how to better manage their children’s disabilities at home.

The Grace team held several events this spring in order to raise the money for travel expenses and supplies they needed for the trip.
