Program for Chinese Group

It was my privilege to speak to a group of international students last week. One of the outreach efforts of my church, University Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, is a weekly meeting with students or spouses to help them with our culture, language, and our practice, led by my friend Virginia Butler. I had spoken to the same group a year ago,

and when they learned about my China trip in March of this year they wanted to hear about my experiences there. I gave a PowerPoint presentation about the quilt exhibit "The Sum of Many Parts" in Dalian and Beijing as well as describing the talks I gave at several schools. They were excited when I told them that the above picture was a part of each of my programs!
I also showed several pieces of my fiber art and explained the techniques and stories behind them.

Thanks, Tanya. I have such admiration for these students who enrich our lives by coming to our country. They also make me more aware of the blessings of being born and living here.
