Lynn's Update Archives: Because of changes in technology and developments in communication tools, it is no longer feasible or necessary to continue to update this website. But, the photos and copy still have value for people who want to know more about life in China and ways volunteers can serve.  In many cases, to update it would be redundant..

For more recent photos, please go to http://chinascenes.shutterfly.com/

In these archives, you will find photos and text of several major kinds of volunteer activities in which I have been involved: Amity Foundation's Summer English Program, schools for children of migrant workers, and campus dialogues. If you are considering any of these activities, there are reports from several different groups.

Also, there are some pages dealing with Chinese culture that are still applicable; Chinese culture doesn't change very rapidly. I am grateful to Amity Foundation for the privilege of visiting a number of mountain villages in which I was very moved by the hospitality of the villagers and intrigued by their customs. Many of these are depicted among these pages. Thank you for your interest over these years; I pray that exchanges between Americans and Chinese will increase and enrich the lives of people from both cultures.
