In a previous post (Noel and Joann's Excellent Adventure), I wrote about my upcoming journey across southwest China with Noel Piper to trace the life and work of Esther Nelson, a nurse/teacher from Minneapolis who worked in Sichuan, China from1927 to 1951.
You are invited to hear Noel and I talk about this upcoming journey at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis on Tuesday, January 10, at 7pm.
We'll talk about her life and work, and of our plans to explore the land she loved. Here is the information from the Bethlehem Baptist Church website:
In the late 1920’s, a young woman departed Bethlehem for southwest China, where she worked as a nurse and teacher until 1951. Esther’s story rests in her letters, and it’s a story waiting to be discovered and told.
In March 2012, Noel Piper and Joann Pittman will travel to China to trace the life and legacy of Esther. They'll be seeking the land and people that captured Esther's heart, traveling to the towns and villages where she served, hopefully even finding people who remember her.
You are invited to hear Noel and Joann talk about their upcoming "Esther Expedition" on Tuesday, January 10, at 7:00pm at the Downtown Campus.
Date: Tuesday, January 10, 2012
