Many churches in China's northeastern Jilin Province joined in removing snow and ice from the streets as the recent freezing rain and blizzard conditions created safety hazards on roads.
The Wenhuajie Church in Ningjiang District, Songyuan, Jilin Province removed the snow by using forklifts, providing protection for residents' travel and traffic in Wenhua Street.
Hongcheng Church in Lvyuan District, Changchun organized believers to help clear the snow in nearby communities that there is no company responsible for this. Many residents who passed by expressed their gratitude to members of the church. Their assistance eased the travel of residents, especially for the elderly and children.
The road next to Songhui Road Church in Chaoyang District, Changchun, was covered with thick snow. After temperatures dropped below freezing, the ice caused problems for vehicles, which were unable to move forward. The leaders of the church organized its members to clear the snow on the road, ensuring the smooth flow of vehicles and traffic safety.
After the blizzard, the Jilin Bible School was covered with a thick layer of snow, preventing teachers and students from traveling and taking part in activities. The school organized students to clear the snow in the courtyard. The students enjoyed doing it, despite the cold weather and the tedious and arduous work.
