“Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortensen and David Relin is the true account of one man’s journey into remote parts of Afghanistan and northern Pakistan to build schools for the children of these poverty stricken areas. The first cup of tea is offered to every stranger as a respectful custom. The second begins a friendship. Sit down with a village elder for the third time to share a cup of tea and you have gained an ally and become part of the family. This is how Greg Mortensen has been building schools for the past decade and readers will be amazed at his dedication and perseverance as they follow him on his mission to promote peace.
