For Father's Day on Sunday, a team of 30 Christian volunteers from Lengshuitan, Yongzhou served the seniors in a county home for the aged, distributing new clothes and daily necessities for these seniors.

The volunteers also used their talents to cut the seniors' hair, sing them hymns, chat and share food with them.  Besides these activities, they prepared dumplings and other dishes for the noon meal.
