Yang Fuquan, a pastor of the Christian Church, says rebuilding in Shifang, China, will be a witness to a largely Buddhist community.
The church was destroyed in a May 2008 earthquake that hit Sichuan Province.
A local water bottling company owner, who is a Christian, contributed funds for rebuilding.
The ELCA helps the church provide counseling, children’s care, leadership training and more.
