Itinerant Manggarai field workers take the first step in preparing a field for planting rice on the island of Flores in eastern Indonesia. They will pull the old rice plants and bury them in the mud where the plants will help fertilize the soil. Two weeks later, the field will be ready for planting a fresh crop of rice.

The Manggarai live in the flattest area on the island of Flores. Because no mountains or deep valleys are found there like the rest of the island, the Manggarai produce most of the island’s wet-field rice. With a population of nearly 600,000, the Manggarai are the largest unreached people group (UPG) in eastern Indonesia. IMB Photo

In Bangladesh, tea garden representatives live in estate-owned housing – mud homes with no electricity or running water. Virtually everything they own belongs to the tea estate. Representatives make between 52 and 64 cents per day. If they were to leave this life they’d leave with the clothes on their back and a few cents in their pockets, a Bangladeshi church planter says. It’s courage and confidence in Christ that brings this church planter to these tea gardens. There are 20 churches and 82 Christians that he knows of in the tea estates. IMB Photo

The sun sets overlooking the gondolas at Saint Mark’s Square in Venice, Italy.

Piazza San Marco, Saint Mark’s Square, is the heart of Venice. As the largest square in the city Saint Mark’s Square has always been the location of important government buildings and other facilities central to the goings on in Venice.

Basilica di San Marco, or Saint Mark’s Cathedral, is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic diocese of Venice. It is the one of the best-known examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture.

The cathedral declares the wealth of Venice over centuries with its domes and turrets and gold mosaic standing out over the square.

Saint Mark’s Square, as well as being the largest square, is also one of the largest open spaces in Venice, a big contrast to the winding alleys and lanes within Venice.

The square is at the end of the Grand Canal and the waterfront is a delight going eastwards, a wide promenade.

In front of the square are the water bus stops and water taxi jetties; it is also the most popular location for taking gondola rides. IMB Photo

The Grand Canal and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute of Venice, Italy. The Grand Canal is a channel in Venice, Italy. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. The Grand Canal of Venice, also known as Canalazzo, is the most important waterway sweeping through this amazing city.

While the ancient canal measures 3.8 kilometers long, it snakes through Venice in a large S shape and splits the city in two. Starting from the Saint Mark’s Basin to a lagoon near the Santa Lucia railway station, the grand canal passes through the central districts of Venice with many magnificent buildings (erected between the 12th and 17th centuries) testifying the wealth and beauty of the city.

Santa Maria della Salute, commonly known simply as the Salute, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica located at Punta della Dogana in the Dorsoduro sestiere of the city of Venice, Italy. It is one of the most popular churches in Venice. It is prominently positioned near the entrance to the Grand Canal. IMB Photo

The ancient town of Hallstatt in Austria’s Salzkammergut Lake District. It is one of the most famous villages in Austria. It’s also one of the most Instagrammed places on earth.
