A Christian Chinese boy

The Chinese have a proverb 'the crooked tree when it is large will straighten itself,' a contradiction of the Christian teaching 'Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.' There are 2,394 Christian schools and colleges in China, and only 52,965 out of at least 150,000,000 Chinese children get the chance of Christian teaching.
