Starting on Feb 2nd, Lvzhuang Christian Church in Zhengzhou, Henan Province held a three-day class for migrant believers prior to baptism. Twelve brothers and sisters who went through the training were baptized in a ceremony on the 5th and received their first communion.

Many migrant brothers and sisters return to their hometown churches every year for meetings and worship during Spring Festival.  Since they spend all year working in other cities, they rarely have time for meetings and worship, and so they do not have a good understanding of God's words, or have much time for baptism.
