  • This journey began in January when Elijah Reed* landed in China, dedicated to sharing Christ through Hands On. He met people that he'd only read about in magazines, such as this Tibetan girl.
  • A gate guard smiles during a simple conversation with me. This guard works around the clock, seeing apartment residents leave and return. As I build relationships like this one, I begin to understand and love the Chinese culture more and more.

  • A young boy plays a game of tag with his sister. It comforts me to see that children are the same everywhere.
