  • Weaving between houses, sprinting, jumping ditches. I’m not barefoot, but I feel I am. Like a scene out of The Jungle Book, I duck beneath branches, calling Bula, hello! to my village friends. I’m a village child myself when I’m running through the dusty dirt. Because in Fiji, in my adopted village...

  • Every two years, my family would save up enough money to travel back to our roots: Hong Kong. In the August of 2009, I returned back to my homeland. It was different this time around compared to the last few times I visited; the ambience was something i had never experienced before and the culture...

I was so excited to visit Africa; after all, none of my friends ever had the chance to go there, and I would have all the cool stories to tell when I got back.   Every day, I would...

  • “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...” is found in Matthew 28:19 and is the key reason for all mission work. This Spring Break I was fortunate enough to go half way across the world to spread the gospel to hopeless people who have never heard the name of Jesus. Less than two percent...

  • When my parents first told my brothers and I we would be visiting Costa Rica weree confused. Having grown up in Europe and immigrated to California, we’re no strangers to travel, but this small Central American country seemed like an extremely random pick compared to the popular Mexican resorts or...

  • have done a lot of traveling for a 17-year old but I'd say the most memorable trip that I've had is a three-week stay in Sweden in June 2008.     We went to Stockholm to attend a high school graduation for an exchange student that lived with us the year before. For graduation, the students file...
