The hill resort of Sapa in north-west Vietnam
H'mong girls at a church service.
It was a humbling experience to see simple country folks like the H'mong worshipping with such fervour in a church. I joined them, and sitting in their midst it was moving to see such a strong belief in their faith. Though their faith was shining bright, the church building has seen better days, and urgently needs a bit of renovation. The church has a dark secret: a priest was murdered here.
