I am so blessed to have found HICF! In my second time to Hangzhou, I was walking down DaJingAlley (where HoFang YHA Hostel is located, off HeFangJie, the main pedestrian street / mall in Hangzhou) saying a silent prayer in my heart to find a place to fellowship with other Christians. God said to me, “Look up and Live!” So I looked up & saw a Cross! So I went to it, but there were only Chinese people there. Someone who could speak English informed me that at 11am on Sundays, there is an English speaking congregation. So I found a church I could call ‘home’.
It is a Bible-believing, tongue-speaking, miracle-practicing inter/multi-denominational Christian church of believers from all over the globe. The pastor was Australian, & on my first day there I had the opportunity to share my testimony with the whole church. I made some good friends there, who I emailed when I left China the second time, asking if anyone knew of a school / company who needed an English Teacher. Chris emailed me back saying that HE may be able to help, through an association with a company called PHICD (Phi Cultural Dissemination), who were needing an English teacher for their up-coming Summer Camp, in FuYang. So he got me the job, with a house provided, and an allowance paid for food.
Unfortunately, Ps Julian has now gone. I believe he was posted in the North of China, somewhere, but may now be ministering back in the home-land of his wife (Monica), New Zealand. The new Pastor is, in-fact ,the old pastor who Julian & Monica replaced, Pss Shane & Star Sauce. They are off for a few weeks, right now, but the body (fellowship) has many parts (members) who are willing and able to fill the gap.
