      I am Wu Qinyan, a science student. I come from Qinzhou No.1 Middle School.  I am sincerely grateful for the help of Blessing Hands. With Blessing Hands' help, I was able go on studying in school. I will never forget the help Blessing hands gave me.
       I grew up poor living with two sisters and one brother. My mother died of an illness just as I started  to go to primary school. My father is a farmer. We have little money and few possessions. My sisters got married four years ago. Therefore, my family's able-bodied members decreased. My father is 59 years old, and his labor strength is weak. My brother dropped out of school, because of sickness.

      I will go to college in the near future. My dream is to be an English teacher. I will always be ready to help others and to do more for society in the future to make my Life more meaningful. I hope you will help me to achieve my goals.                                                 
Thank you very much.                                                                                                                                     
 Yours sincerely,

 Wu Qinyan 吴溱艳
     Lisa wanted to be an English teacher but has accepted a place at the Beihai College of Beihang University to study accounting  for 4 years. Students in China do not always get to choose their major. It depends on what major the college that accepts them wants.  She was so earnest in her interview that she almost cried.

     Evian will study clinical medicine at Guilin Medical College for three years. Evian wants to be in the medical field. There are 6 in her family, including her parents, who are handicapped and can't work much, and three younger children. She herself has an illness. They are farmers but have little income. She is from Qinzhou, China. She interviewed early so she could go to work for the summer to help herself with tuition for college.

     My name is Mo Yuanhong. I come from Qinzhou No. 1 Middle School. Now I intend to study medicine. My mother and father are farming at home. There are four children to study at home. The family cannot afford expensive school fees. The hands of my parents have had serious injury (arthritis that always pains them). They do not do heavy work.

San Niangwan, my home, is a beautiful place. I'm doing summer work now. I wish you are happy everyday. I'll be like you with love to warm other people. Helping othersis a happy thing. I will keep it in mind.  I thank you that 
you told me to help others.

 Thanks again!

      Lewis' mother is from a minority group, but he lives with his father and grand- mother. He will go three years to an agriculture college, Guangxi Agricultural College to learn gardening and agriculture technology. He is from Pingji High school, a rural school in Qinzhou Prefecture. This is the first year that students from his school have applied for scholarships.

      My family is very poor now. I can't change it, but it can't defeat me. Because I have a dream and there are a lot of people concerned about me-kind people. I thank you.

      Let me introduce my family. We live in a small village named Da Tian Pin in the Qinzhou Prefecture. There are three people in my family, Grandma, Father and me. We are happy though our family is poor. I got Blessing Hands' tuition help in high school, which made us more happy than before and relieved my father. I believe that if the world has love, the world will be more beautiful.

Hannah Huang Zhifeng 

      Hannah's father was electrocuted when she was 7. Her mother could not accept his death and later left Hannah and her younger sister with their grandparents and went away. Their grandparents have aged and are less able to support them now.  Hannah is thankful to the sponsors who helped her 5 years during the most difficult time of her life. She has been accepted

into a marketing program in a two year college, Jiangxi Lantian College.

      I was born in a small village in 1993. I was happy with a peaceful family. Unluckily, when I was seven years old, my father died from electricity in our village's water system. My mother couldn't accept the fact and left us alone. 

      After my father died, my sister and I lived with our grandparents. OUr daily life income depended on our uncle. At first our grand- parents could grow vegetables and corn to support our poor family. When they became older and older, their bodies got worse and even to do some small things they needed greater power. Last summer, grandpa suffered from several kinds of diseases and was in danger of dying. Luckily, he came to life finally. 

     When I needed food in senior high school, I had to rely on other's help to graduate from Yangshuo Experimental Middle School. Recently my mother came back, but she married another man. I and my sister still live with my grandparents, because we can understand why she left in a hurry. 

    We are satisfied with our life. Thanks to hope, Blessing Hands' help, and my grandparent's insistence on bringing us up, when I got into difficulties, they taught me how to find my confidence and gave me hope. As our family has it hard, I need help to complete my college dream.

Thank You! 黄志凤

of the family are all on her mother since her father has fallen sick. Hong has been accepted at Yongjiang University, and will study three years to become a secretary. She got a summer job in Guangdong but came all the way back on the train to Qinzhou to interview with us for a scholarship. She is from Pingji High School. 

       I am Li Hong from Pingji Middle School in Guangxi, Qinzhou City. My family has six people - my mother and father, a older brother and two sisters. I am the youngest child in my family. With Blessing Hands' help my family has greatly improved, reducing the burden of my mother.
     My family's living expenses are all on my mother since my father suddenly became sick and cannot farm or work. We need a lot of medicine to treat him.  I watch my mother work so hard. I would give up school, but she will not agree. She tells me to hold on to my dream. My family has no ability to pay for me to go to the university. If you can give me help, you will change my fate. You can help me realize my dreams. I am waiting for your good news. 

     If I get your help and have the ability, I would help those that need help and do volunteer work. I want to do good deeds to return to society what I have received, transferring that love to everyone. Finally I sincerely wish you and your home joy, health, and happiness every day. 

From Li Hong 李红
