They have an impressive blog too...
They were on a mission of bible friendship. Their website has lots of stories of communication and friendship through giving away bibles they are toting around. I am not saying this is a bad thing, but I think they were maybe overly optimistic about the general goodwill of their fellow humans, and thus a bit starry-eyed about their voyage in general.
