Kunming photo journal

Kunming is our second stop on this outreach. This is a bigger and newer city, but the traditions are just as deep as Nanning. Papa is ever-present here as always.

Mind Your Step- the start of an adventure in China

We had to adjust to the food, culture, and time difference, which could be viewed as a hurdle, but the team has taken the challenge in stride.

Camping out at Peking Burger King

The trip over the big blue ocean was long and exhausting. We had a lengthy layover in the capital city, hence the opportunity to set up camp near the Burger King food court area. The scene of our campsite is a reminder of the hobo towns of yester year. One thing about an international airport is

Student to Teacher
