July 11 – Hi from India! We can’t believe that in just over 1 week we’ll be leaving our project site to begin the long journey home. This week we have been able to spend some time working along side the BMW students on the property. We have even been able to teach some songs during a class as their teacher was unable to get to the base due to the heavy rain.
Monday saw us head into town. What an eye opening experience for most team members. We were able to buy some souvenirs and enjoyed an Indian buffet lunch, which also included ICE-CREAM! On our way home, we stopped by a children’s home for girls. It was a great experience to teach the girls some songs. The home is run by one lady who also receives some help from her mother, who looks after 20 girls. We also stopped at a leprosy colony on the outskirts of town. It was such a blessing for both team members and residents to spend some time together.
The next few days will see us head back into the community to present more programs at schools and villages.
Please continue to pray for the health of the team and for some sunny weather to dry our clothes.
We miss you all and look forward to seeing you soon – Love from the India Team.
PS – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Kate xoxo
Rachel Fertich – God has really blessed us this week with slightly cooler weather. We were able to accomplish a lot around the base. We also had the opportunity to go shopping and we even got to eat ice-cream!!!! We can’t believe how quickly time is flying by here, we have just over 1 week until we begin our journey home. This time away has made me really appreciate home and we are constantly being blessed. It has challenged me to look for God’s blessings and look at the cup half full rather than half empty.
Gabe Opp – Being here in India has been a great experience for me. I love the people and the countries beauty. God has been showing me a lot on this trip, one main thing is how important my family is to me. I’ve missed them so much and I can’t wait to spend time with them. I want to change how I treat them and spend more meaningful time with them, cherishing every moment.
