Echoes of the gospel

In this second video of our Middle Ground series, our tour guide (Rob) heads out of the city with Pioneers workers. They visit a mountain village and a traditional summer pasture where a shepherd tends his flock. Rob experiences both the rich hospitality of a meal with his hosts and the unsettling reality of what it took to make that meal possible.
