A Walk Through History:

On Jan. 18, 1929, Wang Shijing (王世静校长) was installed as the first Chinese president of her alma mater, Hwa Nan University (华南女子学院-The Women’s College of South China). In the 1920s, as anti-Western and anti-Christian sentiment grew in China following China’s perceived betrayal at the Versailles Peace Conference, schools founded by missionaries were required to turn control over to Chinese nationals. Wang served as president until the new communist government abolished Christian education in 1951. She was labeled an anti-rightist and suffered severe depression until her death in 1983. Pray for Christians suffering from mental illness to find professional help and to know that the Lord hears and answers their prayers. Psalm 6:9 "The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord accepts my prayer."
