Sleeping on the floor, listening to a blind man’s story and sampling kangaroo burgers—students in the School of Divinity at Gardner-Webb University participated in these immersion experiences while traveling in Asia over the summer. Dr. Hebert Palomino, professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling, led a group that focused on pastoral care, and students who traveled with Professor of Missiology Dr. Terry Casiño learned how to function, live, and work in different cultures. The first week Palomino’s group stayed at a refugee camp in Mae La, Thailand.
