"It is when people see Christ in his fullness that their faith, obedience and worship are stimulated and so they become mature. It is the Word of God, confirmed and enforced by the Spirit of God, which effectively matures and sanctifies the people of God." -John Stott, from "The Langham Trust's Strategic Vision"
CONQUERING STIGMAS: TRAVELLING SOLO THROUGH THE SILK ROAD
TRAVELLING SOLO THROUGH THE SILK ROAD - Three months ago, I took a 2.5 month trip through the Silk Road, a ancient network of trade routes, starting from China, I went through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and finally Turkmenistan and it was honestly the most unforgettable trip I have ever had traveling. The rawness of the hospitality and kindness was beyond any words that I can describe. By Sophia Kim for http://WeAreTravelGirls.com
One of my top three current travel dreams is to traverse the entire old Silk Road overland from China to Europe. Here is Tash Rabat caravanserai high in the Tian Shan mountains of central Kyrgyzstan, a fortified travelers inn dating from the 15th century.
