Click the “Mission to China” link and journey with us to China.
In 2005 Tom and I traveled to PRC – the Peoples Republic of China – to the city of Nanning, GuangXi Province. There we joined a team of Baptists to teach English conversation to Chinese Middle School and High School age students in the University of GuangXi’s summer English program. We played tourist only one weekend with a visit to Gueilin and the Dragon’s Teeth mountains – a visit to another time as ancient as these sandstone formations.
A boat trip down the Li Po took us through the heart of the Dragon’s Teeth.
But we were not alone!
In China the ancient ways resist change, while the new generation embraces it.
Rice paddies and MP3s. A world apart, sitting side-by-side.
I like that last few minutes on CBS Sunday Morning, when the camera just lets us see and hear nature. I can’t povide the sounds, but here’s the nature – from our 2010 trek to Colorado!
