This story is quite inspiring to me. When I saw this teacher doing something incredible like this for his students for decades, the urge to become a teacher like him almost completely took over me. I have been telling people who ask me what I want to do after seminary that I want to be a teacher – a teaching pastor. A Bible Teacher.
This video shows a dedication of a high school teacher Bruce Farrer, and his impact on his former students to whom he asked to write letters to their future selves for decades as an assignment. If you add all the hours he put on them to store and organize them, that is very unbelievable. It requires a maximum dedication and commitment to the cause. Anyway, he tracks down his former students after twenty years and mails their letters to their current address. The students in the video testify more than I can write here how much their lives were impacted by this not-so-cool teacher back then. Watch and enjoy and do not forget to appreciate your teachers who have walked with you an extra mile to make you what you are today.
Have you every had a car or bus ride where you had to get down and push it to pull aside or jumpstart? Well, I’ve had one of those experience in the past where we were told to get off the bus and push it to start the engine that suddenly turned off on its own. You stay behind the bus or car in a push-up position, hold your breath, and push the vehicle with all your might just like the picture below;)

On the second day of our trip, we went to see the elephant breeding place in Sauraha, Chitawan National Park. Ticket counter has an adjacent room that is used as one-room museum that displays the big skull of a dead elephant. Four walls of the room is covered with valuable information on elephant’s life-cycle, its inhabitant, health issues and challenges to rear them etc. etc. I captured the skull from four sides for my blog readers.

Our tour guide told us that only male elephants have two long tusks. Females have short ones under their trunk. We saw more than half a dozen elephants (male and female) tied their front legs with metal chain under the tall sheds. Behind them in the open space was their dry poop piled up. Staffs of the park set fire on the heaps of dung to burn them.
