As the 2024 Chinese New Year is coming, churches in Hubei, Fujian, and Shaanxi provinces carried out caring visitation activities.

According to the Hunan Provincial TSPM, on January 31, St. James Church in Yichang, along with three local communities, provided 120 needy families with basic foods worth nearly 20,000.

For more than 20 years, St. James Church and local communities have co-organized the "Three Supports and One Assistance" event (supporting students, the elderly, and the disabled; assisting the underprivileged), with the assistance aim increasing from one to three communities.

Recently, a visiting team of pastoral staff, co-workers at distinct meeting points, and group leaders from Shashi Church in Jingzhou paid visits and sent warmth to elderly, sick, and difficult believers, said Jingzhou Municipal CC. A church in Jianli City (a county-level city affiliated with Jingzhou City) embarked on a visit to aged co-workers, the elderly, those who live alone, and those in need.

The charity organization of Wenfeng Church in Dongshan County, Zhangzhou City, Fujian Province, distributed food to the impoverished and disabled on February 3, reported the church.

On January 31, leaders of the Shaanxi Christian community extended a visit to the retired leaders of the provincial CC&TSPM with money. Furthermore, the visiting team provided financial support to 120 pastoral staff members from grassroots churches who were experiencing living challenges, with encouragement for their service to the church.
