On July 29, 2013, Sarah, Janna (interns from the USA), and I visited the Mingda School. We left Lanzhou at 8:30 in the morning and arrived at Jingning at 12:30. We finally arrived at Xiji at 16:00. We met Teacher Zhang and visited the project - the Mingda School - on July 30.
The school is located in a small yard at the foot of a hill. The red tiles are quite obvious, especially in the middle of the green trees. The bookshelves have not been completed yet. There are 2 shelves at the moment. Some books were donated, and I am thankful for that. The reading room is the same room as the dormitory. With the expansion of the school, we expect to see more reading rooms.
The two girls from the USA were popular among the children. They held a vivid, American-style English class for the children in spite of their fatigue from the journey.
