Jordan and a granny he met when climbing mountain.

Triflinggifts with profoundfeeling

“Hi, nice to meet you and my Chinese name is Yixuan (逸轩). Because of one year “Chinese only” challenge in Harbin, he can speak good Chinese. He also gave himself an artist Chinese name.

However, sometimes he cannot talk with local people without obstacles. The first thing in the morning is to buy some great vegetables. When capturing the scene that a few farmers Squatting down at the corners holding baskets full of fresh stuff, he is pretty excited.

It took a short period of time to get along well with the farmers since he sometimes cannot understand dialects. Jordan gradually got to know that these diligent farmers come from the poor neighboring village---Wanxichong.

When the Christmas came to town in 2015, a bold and meaningful idea occurred to Jordan. Namely, he planed to send some presents to the villagers with the help of his lovely friends.

However, some villagers doubted his intention even though he tried hard to show his kindness in fluent Chinese over and over again. Even there was a family regarding Jordan as a bad apple.

"There was a dingy and gloomy house. A couple worn crumpled clothes standing in front of the mud road." This family impressed him a lot. At that time, when Jordan and his Chinese roommate Gaojin walked close to them, the man directly refused the presents and asked them to leave right away.

"I thought he might misunderstand me." he smiled. What's more, Jordan did not give up. They patiently explained that the gift was completely free and passed it to the nice woman beside. It is an amazing thing that majority of villagers accepted his love and were grateful for them.

Meanwhile, what made Jordan remember the most is an old man bowing to find the available things in a rubbish dump. "Although he cannot figure out my Putonghua well, he showed his deep gratitude with hands folded."

Chenggong seems like Jordan's home where these villagers are his families. What he has done merely wanted the children here to be the same happy as he was young.
