    • Moroccan Man Watching the Crowd

    • Independent Travel

    • Little Treasures

    • Marionettes

    • History of Science in Europe

    • Guidelines and Limitations

    • History of Science in Europe
    • This photo was taken on the way to the entrance of St. Peter’s Basilica. It is supposed to be the dress code for admittance into the Basilica, but apparently you can’t enter if you are missing a leg or a large chunk of your arm…

    • Foot prints in the sand

    •  
    • As our group was walking up the sand dunes in United Arab Emirates, I was so impressed with how perfect the ripples in the sand looked going on forever, but we stepped across it like we stepped into the culture. I stepped into a 100% Muslim...
    • Midnight in Paris

    •  
    • It was Thanksgiving night after a wonderful dinner at the American church in Paris. I rushed to the Eiffel tower before it closed and decided to go all the way to the top that evening. Upon leaving, we walked through the park that surrounds the...

    • We painted a very poor church in a small village in the Philippines. Many kids were around and watched us help their church. This little boy was in a corner by himself with his shirt pulled over his head, watching us intensely. It seemed as if...
    • Blue Agama Lizard

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)

    • Independent Missions Trip
