On Jan. 15, 1864, pioneer American missionaries Calvin Mateer (狄考文) and wife Julia arrived in Tengchow (now Penglai), Shandong. They founded the first Christian college in China; by the time of Calvin's death, the 170 graduates of Shantung Christian University—as it was later called—were spread over sixteen provinces, many serving as Christian teachers in more than a hundred schools. Pray for Christians to train up their children in the ways of the Lord and for fruit to come from Christian schools being established in China. Acts 22:15 "For you will be a witness for him to everyone of what you have seen and heard."
