A study tour for a primary school and church in Hunan Province

From October 17th to 19th, a delegation from CCC, Jingling Church in Shanghai, and Religious Affair Office of Hongkou District in Shanghai went to Nanyue District, Hengyang City of Hunan Province to conduct an onsite visit on a local church and Baidian Primary School.


In the early morning of 18th, the delegation went to Baidian Primary School, which is 40 km away from the downtown and located at the south foot of the famous Heng Mountain. The school covers 17 natural villages and now has 52 pupils and 10 teachers. Since it is in a mountain, some students have to walk 2 hours back home by themselves. The previous school buildings were quite shabby; some windows were even not installed with glass. With the generous support from church and local poor villagers, the school buildings were renovated, now there is a three-story new building which is put into use, the playground is also renovated, canteen is also built for the students to have lunch, local education bureau helps to buy the chairs, desks and teaching equipment.

 

 

 

In the afternoon, the delegation visited the only church in Nanyue District, which was built in 1925 by American church. However, there are only 144 church members now and many of them choose the house church since the church building is nearly collapsed without little renovation.
