POSTED: December 11, 2007 7:19 a.m.

Beginning Sunday, The Times takes you on a three-day “Journey to Vietnam.”

Times photographer Robin Michener Nathan joined a mission team from First Baptist Church on Green Street for a weeklong visit to flood-ravaged Vietnam.

The mission trip, hampered by flooded roads, succeeded in bringing food and supplies to residents in the Communist nation.

Sunday, Community Editor Harris Blackwood chronicles the experiences of the Rev. Joe Tu, pastor of the Vietnamese congregation at First Baptist, as he sets foot in his native land for the first time in more than 22 years.

Monday, a look at the trip and how it changed because of floods and how it has inspired plans for additional work by First Baptist in Vietnam.

Tuesday, we examine life in Vietnam three decades after the war. The story is told through the eyes of a man who stayed behind despite the opportunity to leave as a refugee.
