Title

Siam: Kenneth on Ministering to the Chinese in His Parish, esp. Through Building Schools

Description

In his parish, there were at least two million people, and a substantial portion were Chinese working on rubber gardens and tin mines. They had no Chinese schools for their children. Kenneth had the bright idea that perhaps he could interest them in building primary schools, say, through the fourth grade, to teach their children Chinese and Chinese culture and history and so on. He was concerned that they were rapidly losing their culture. All of the Chinese communities that built schools with Kenneth's help became Christian, developed their own churches, and of course needed pastors, some of whom they brought down from China.
