Mission in Henan Province

Henan Province
Henan is a province of China located in the center-east. With nearly one hundred million inhabitants, is the most populous province in China. Henan is often regarded as the cradle of Chinese civilization. Northern Henan, along the Yellow River, has been the core of ancient China for at least half of its history. Several archaeological sites in this area reveal that different prehistoric cultures were active here.
