Website's Chinese Name: <扬子江边的哈得逊>
This website contains very well-preserved old photographs of Kiukiang Water of Life Hospital (九江生命活水医院) and Old China. The site illuminates the life of Dr. Edward Carter Perkins (裴敬思医生) and his wife, Ms. Georgina M. Phillip (裴家纪) from Yonkers, NY, along the bank of Hudson River. They served as United Methodist missionaries in China between 1913 and 1951. The site also shows faces of many others whom Dr. and Mrs. Perkins had worked with – particularly at The Water of Life Hospital (生命活水医院), one that they established in 1918 in this tiny but storied town, 江西九江, by the bank of Great Yangtze River (扬子江边) in Central China. The Kiukiang Water of Life Hospital (九江生命活水医院) is still in existence today.
And perhaps, a story that spans over a century, connecting
the themed Yangtze River (扬子江) and Hudson River (哈得逊河), the two great streams
flowing at two opposite ends of the earth, can be finally told here...
