A delegation from the Hong Kong Cornerstone Association visited the churches in Jiangyou, Sichuan from April 14 to April 16, 2017.

The local churches in Jiangyou, Mianyang face the most daunting task of rebuilding in the quake-hit areas affected by the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. So far, five churches have been reconstructed in the villages and towns, while there is a chapel in the downtown which is yet to be completed due to insufficient funds.

The 28-person delegation divided into four teams and visited over 70 elderly people in the local nursing homes, seven poor families and five financially disadvantaged students, who will participate in this year's national college entrance examination, giving financial assistance and care to them. They also attended the Easter Sunday services in the local churches, gatherings and present chorals. After the services, some medical workers with the delegation offered free medical treatment to over 1000 people.

The Hong Kong Cornerstone Association was established in 1994 with two service patterns: Great Commission-Evangelism (Matthew 28:18-20) to assist building and rebuilding of mainland churches and Great Commandment-Love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:37-40) to serve the mainland comrades with the love of Christ and assist the poverty alleviation and the development of social services.
