Mission: Threshold Ministries serves children and families in and around Linjiang City in Jilin Province, China. Linjiang is located on the Yalu River on the border of China and North Korea. Our ministry addresses the extreme poverty in Linjiang and the surrounding area. Threshold has established child sponsorship programs that support over 250 needy school age children and their families. Sponsorship provides education, clothing, food and medical care when needed. In 2005 we opened our orphanage, TMI Hope House for Children, to care for the orphaned and abandoned children in this area. Threshold also provides emergency food and other basic necessities to families or entire villages in need. We have programs that provide chickens and working cows. We are the only organization in this area providing charitable services to a population of people so desperately in need.
