The Huoshui(Living Water) Sign Language Church of Yantai, Shandong, will move to a room of an office building with an area of about 400 square meters. The new place is currently being decorated.

After work, several deaf believers joined in the fit-out process and did some cleaning to save money.

The church started from six deaf Christians who held worship in the home of a believer in October 1995. The church was officially founded seven years later when the congregation moved to gather in Yantai Qishan Church. The first batch of deaf believers were baptized in August 2004. In 2005, it moved to a basement of Yantai Shengli Church for over eight years. Later it rented a room of the current office building for the dilapidated church had to be closed for reconstruction in September 2013. The new place with the size of around 80 square meters could hold fifty to sixty people.

In 2016 when Shengli Church was successfully refurnished, the sign language church decided not to move back for the latter has not enough space and some pillars that hinder the vision of the deaf.
