The Christians in Anqing planted trees in Zhengsheng Love and Care Service Center on March 9, 2019.

On March 9, 2019, in Anqing, Anhui Province, believers from the city and Haikou county led by Pastor Zheng Yuguo, members of the Timothy fellowships, and volunteers visited Anqing's Zhengsheng Love and Care Service Centre to plant trees, under the guidance of professional arborists.

For this tree planting event, Christians from counties such as Tongcheng, Wangjiang, Yuexi, Qianshan, Huaining, Fuyang and other places donated 40,000 yuan to purchase wintersweet, osmanthus, and crape and other various plant types. Pastor Zheng then went to Feixi Floral Centre to order, pack and transport the trees to the service centre.

Anqing's Zhengsheng Love and Care Service Centre is located in Hushan Village, Wuheng Township, Yixiu District, Anqing City. It covers a total area of 24,007 square meters, including 5 buildings consisting of 24 rooms, and 2 rows of units. The service centre is divided into three areas: a care centre for the elderly, a rescue centre for disabled children, and a shelter for women who have suffered abuse and family violence.

The construction of the service centre began in June 2014. At that time, there were only dilapidated school buildings. In order to reduce cost, the Anqing City Christian Patriotic Committee encouraged the Christians across the city to take part. They demolished the old school buildings, leveled the land, and planted trees. Back then, church volunteers, even brothers and sisters from rural churches, during the slack season all came to help. There were old and young, but they all were enthusiastic about doing the work for the Lord.
