The church in the mountain has a 100-year-old church in the ancient town of Moxi, built by the French missionaries at that time, adopted the combination of Chinese and Western architecture. The church after a hundred years of wind, rain and fire still standing, itself is a miracle. To this day, many unseen mountains in Yunnan and Sichuan still see the churches built by Western missionaries a hundred years ago. With today's traffic, it is difficult to get into these areas, and even then, I really admire these people's dedication and pursuit of faith.
