Our work in 2018 began in Thailand and Cambodia. Our efforts included making preparations and gathering solid contacts to help as we put plans in place for our return in the fall. We call our initial efforts an "Advance Party". An Advance Party is a pioneer term used to refer to a small contingent who go ahead to accomplish some feat. A smaller group can travel much more quickly and make arrangements more efficiently and effectively. And that was the case with the arrangements we were able to make in Thailand and Cambodia.
