"Bring Me Hope"

Man fulfills a wish with trip to China
MEDFORD — In China, Chris Cannatella was called “Kang An Hua,” which means “man who brings peace to the Chinese people.”

Cannatella, a Medford resident, traveled to China in July with a group of 13 others, all members of the Fellowship Alliance Cha-pel on Church Road.

The group went to China as part of the Bring Me Hope program, a nonprofit summer camp that “exists to create the vision for adoption,” according to its Web site. Bring Me Hope was established two years ago by a California family.

“I always had it in my heart to participate in some humanitarian service to foreign countries, or even in our own country,” Cannatella said.

The group went to Nanchang, China, and brought 20 orphan children to the mountains of Jing Gang Shan.
