Genuine Christians are benefactors, not parasites. They help without asking for repayment. Many mi ...

Since you are a "parasite".....
it shows your religion must me too.

Many missionaries did a good job bringing health, hygiene, modern medicine and education to other places.

I'm sure that is what they told the native people before they stole the land from them.
(not a fair trade)
But since your white Christian beliefs forgives you for anything, it does not matter.

You are displaying the ugliest feature of a person biased against others - you overgeneralise and  ...

You are a glaring example of how white Christians behave.
Something I'd rather NOT be.
Yet you are proud of the crimes they committed in China and the world.

That is enough for 2 meals in a day.

yes 2 bowls of noodles, but nobody in china works a day for 1.25 usd...
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

I'm sure that would be the worst case scenario.
My diet was noodles for lunch 8 yuan and dinner meat w/veg for 13.
Impossible to do in the US for $3

That surprises me for the cost of simple veggies.
Here in the States, the cost is almost the same for meat.
Some meat in a soup goes a long way.
The older I get....
the more veggies I can eat.

China does not have as highly developed service industry as more developed countries. It is big already in absolute terms, certainly, but that's only because of big population. In some other countries, products and services go through many levels of value addition, and each taking a stake in it results in more expensive final products. Even if the product is a potato.

Another thing is rule of law (or lack of it). In USA or EU for example, rule of law is more mature and in higher standard, which means that it is more costly to maintain - both the rule of law itself, and it's implications in running any kind of business, be it factory or a noodles shop. Extreme example of this is legal costs in USA, that affect everything from doing business to price of medical care.
