Qingdao Demographics & Prayer Requests

By the end of 2006, Qingdao was estimated to be the home of about 8 million inhabitants, of which around 3 million reside in the Qingdao urban area. Another estimated 5 million live in other cities under Qingdao's jurisdiction.

The annual birth rate is calculated around 76,507, with a birth rate of 10.15 per year per thousand, and a death rate of 6.32, both calculated on an annual basis.

Living standards are among highest of leading Chinese cities due to the strong export economy and relatively high family wages.

While Qingdao is home to 38 Chinese ethnic minorities they constitute only 0.14% of the city's total population. Qingdao boasts a vibrant expatriate community, led by the Korean community which comprised over 80,000 individuals in 2007.

This information all comes from Wikipedia--not my brain.

Please pray for Jen. She has had so much to do and she is worn down. Pray that she will find someone to take her little dog. The girl who was supposed to take him changed her mind. Also Jen still has to raise about $5000. Her church is taking an offering this Sunday, and some friends are having a gold party (people bring broken gold jewelry, and then it is melted down). I'm planning a barbecue for the Sheriff's Office and asking for donations. Anyway, she needs your prayers.
