It’s time to pack my bags but I’m pretty sure my heart will stay behind. Even without the images of my photographs, I would remember the images in my mind – the men and women, boys and girls, families, children, young, old . . . . I will remember the friendly hospitality that I encountered on every turn. I will remember the good and the bad that I saw. I will remember the deep spirituality encountered on every turn, sadly directed to idols and spirits and not to God. For now it is ‘goodbye Saigon’ for me, but Saigon will remain in my prayers and I hope it will remain in yours as well.

Thank you for your wonderful pictures of your journey through Vietnam. As a Vietnam veteran I especially enjoyed the pictures taken in the Mekong Delta, where I spent a year. I will continue to pray for the salvation of the Vietnamese people.
Jim – thanks for your note. Glad you enjoyed the pictures and thank you for your prayers on behalf of the peoples of Viet Nam.
