We have lived and worked in China for seven years now. Our objective is to bring love to those in need, by caring and giving in practical ways as needs come to our attention. Many in China still live in poverty conditions. Small villages in the interior have no real plumbing or other taken-for-granted needs. Some orphanages in China are desperate for many of the basic needs such as clothing, medical and dental care, education needs, as well as the toys and things children need to have better quality of life. Students who are required to pay for their education past Grade 6 cannot afford the education.
We visit orphanages with all we can bring, sponsor students to go to school, bring a doctor or dentist care to isolated places, volunteer where we are needed and bring together people who can help with those in need.

Migrant School in Nanjing
Located 20 minutes by car from NIS, the school has 450
primary age students. Their parents are not living in their home town so their children are not eligible for government funded school.
The school has few resources for the students and no heating. Jenine explained the complicated social issues with children of migrant parents.
Teaching basic English andexposure to foreigners will be the focus of Tian Ming visits. Speaking Chinese is not necessary. The program involves partnering foreign volunteers with Chinese
friends who can translate. Training will be given before visits start. Rebecca shared a previous experience. On the initial visit, Tian Ming members were warmly welcomed by the principal and students
Volunteers for this program would be greatly appreciated!
Christmas Boxes will be made and distributed. Empty boxes will be made available.
