Sun. May 3, 2009 (Jeanette Hanson)

Jeanette Hanson, along with her husband (and two children), lived in China's Sichuan province since 1991 where they worked for MC Canada, spoke about the global church. Between teaching English and working with local community and church groups, the Hansons were also able to assist in distributing MCC aid following the devastating earthquake in Sichuan. While China has an official policy of religious freedom, there is concern that foreigners could also bring foreign ideas into the country. When asked 'why can't you just stay home?' Jeanette said we are our brother's keeper. At a farewell banquet before the family returned to Canada in 2008, a local pastor said "we're sending you back to Canada to be our representative, we need each other, we are not complete without each other." Jeanette pointed out that we need to hear God's voice from a variety of cultures. Why not stay home? So the love of God might be made known. The Hansons plan to return to Sichuan in June 2010.
