Dear Friends,

The renovation of the 2nd floor of the Zhengzhou special care center is well on the way we are hoping that we can have this up and running early in January. All of the playrooms and bedrooms have been sponsored  for more information as to how you can help please email robin@hopefosterhome.com.


Joyce is continuing to improve and would like to thank you for all of your prayers and good wishes it has meant so much to her. This month is our 26th wedding anniversary so this is a special time for us to celebrate what God has done during our life together.

We have had many visitors this month as Christmas approaches, it is really nice to see the interest in the work. We have had School groups from ISB, Dulwich College, WAB, CCC Capital Kids, Tianjin Int and many more we have also had a number of Company groups visit like Prometheus Partners, Apricot Forest and many Chinese companies all bringing supplies for the home.

We also just received these sweet photos below of Jing Tai (now Ty) on vacation with his family in Mexico. He has come such a long way!
