“Donation to School in China,” Ensign, Mar. 1995, 78
Elder John K. Carmack, a member of the Seventy and president of the Asia Area, recently presented a gift to the Nan An Village Primary School in the Guang Dong Province on behalf of the Church.
“This gift comes from the individual members of the Church internationally who are encouraged to make donations for international humanitarian efforts,” explained Elder Carmack when he presented a check to Pastor Gene Preston of the Hong Kong Union Church and Andy Blunier, co-convener of the Men’s Fellowship group, who is helping organize the project. “We hope this encourages others of all denominations to support this worthy cause that will benefit China and may open other similar opportunities in the future.”
The donation, along with other funds raised by the Hong Kong Christian Council, will be used to provide classrooms, teachers’ quarters, school kitchen, washroom, sports grounds, and first-year operating expenses for the primary school in southern China.
