A year later and it seems I am still mentally and emotionally processing the GBC trip to Papua New Guinea. It was wonderful in many ways, as well as a stretching experience. After many months of preparing an art seminar for the college students of GBBC, the 2 day workshop was a whirlwind of energy, song, color, and creativity. I did not know what a creative and thoughtful group of students I was going to meet at the college. They were a treasure to work with, and as so often happens, I was privileged to learn from them even while teaching.
These photos were processed, and videos were put together, within days of completing grueling travel, so while they are not perfect, they will give you an idea of the team's activities and work on this trip.
Our visit was short, but I loved the opportunity to get to know the students and faculty at the Goroka Baptist Bible College.
This first video is a trailer I created to let people know about the team presentation of the trip. That presentation was a year ago but you can still enjoy the trailer.
Over 100 hours of travel there and back, and 10 days of work: this was an intense trip. I hope through the video you will see the beauty of the land and people, a team dedicated to the work at hand, and a college devoted to the people they serve. (And, yes, the video is long.)
