Welcome to our adventure as we share our journey through words and pictures, while we travel through Southern China & Beijing. We'll be biking through villages and experiencing rural life & culture, worshiping with Chinese Christians, hiking the Great Wall, touring the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, participating in service projects, and so much more.

Please be encouraged to scroll through the posts and pictures to discover what the team is experiencing. Want to know what the team may be up to on a given date?

First Biking Adventure

Following worship we met up with the team from BCIS. You can imagine the relative chaos coming as our two teams of 26 each, merged and then divided into 5 biking groups. The BCIS students greeted us with with gifts and special name bibs for our backpacks so we at least knew everyone's name.
After a quick lunch of PB&J sandwiches, hard boiled eggs, bananas and oranges it was time to ride out.  St. Paul's has students and adults in three groups so don't worry if you only see a select group in the biking pictures. We are working on getting pictures from each group.  On the ride today we saw lots of rice being harvested, interviewed  villagers and farmers and experienced some fun times with people along the way. We are spending the next two nights in the city of Tiashan.

Each day you will read reflections from different members of the team. The next two posts will share thoughts from Wyatt and Ben S.
