Luke's Reflection

Today we biked around Southern China for about 28 miles. We saw diverse things, experienced a different culture and met many amazing people. When these people first see us they usually wave. My biking group met two very extraordinary ladies. Mrs. Yu and Mrs. Peng. When I met these people I could just feel the joy radiating from them. These ladies loved life and lived it to the fullest even when they live in such poverty. They showed me that people should always be thankful and live our lives to the fullest no matter what condition or state we live in.

PS - they both farm and work hard all day.


  1. I miss you Luke.

    Love Dad

  2. What a lovely post, Luke. I bet they could tell YOU are extraordinary, just by looking in your eyes!
    Love, Mrs. Martin :)
