It’s not that long ago when I was thinking, “Can I really spend a month in China? Is this a crazy idea?” Right at that time, no kidding, this was my fortune at Lee Ann Chin (don’t tell Joann, but that’s my family’s favorite “Chinese” place to eat).
I don’t want you to think that the paths of my life are guided by fortune cookies, but yes, my tickets now are booked.
Joann and I are thankful to all of you who are following with interest our Esther expedition. We’re getting together to talk about our trip and hope you can join us. We’ll have pictures and stories and maybe some goodies too.
Bethlehem to China: A Journey
Downtown Campus, Room 114
Tuesday, January 10, 2012
7:00pm - 9:00pm
In the late 1920’s, a young woman departed Bethlehem for southwest China, where she worked as a nurse and teacher until 1951. Esther’s story rests in her letters, and it’s a story waiting to be discovered and told.
In March 2012, Noel Piper and Global Partner Joann Pittman will travel to China to trace the life and legacy of Esther. They’ll be seeking the land and people that captured Esther’s heart, traveling to the towns and villages where she served, hopefully even finding people who remember her.
You are invited to hear Noel and Joann talk about their upcoming “Esther Expedition” on Tuesday, January 10, at 7:00pm at the Downtown Campus.
RSVP isn’t required, but we’d love to know if you’re coming. You can do that by commenting here or by using the Contact link above–also if you have any questions.
