In the morning, Vimal and I headed straight off towards the school which is always a lovely ride for me where I can bask in God’s creation and beauty and characteristics! Vimal is a crazy man. I don’t know how he even puts up with all the errands and responsibilities along with the new ministry at the school.
Please put in a quick prayer for him and his health and that he may realize that God doesn’t take pleasure in the strength of the horse nor the legs of a man but takes delight in those who fear Him who put their hope in His unfailing love!
We arrived in time to see the kids out of their classes and got to play cricket, soccer, and volleyball with them! I can really take in the value of such a ministry that would offer free education to these village kids; teaching them English and giving them so much more opportunity to open the door towards their dream and how it connects with God’s dream for them! Ahh!! It’s so so exciting to see what God has in store for these kids! There’s much work to do but there is definitely great amount of potential!
As the afternoon came to a close, Vimal had to run and take a bus towards Hyderabad to take care of some more errands along with a Skype conference with the organization (see, crazy man!) so I was left in this lovely school away from society. Later that night I was given the opportunity to teach the kids more worship songs and dance and games which they loved getting crazy for.
So my energy is spent and gone awaiting for God to come restore me for a new day with new fun and awesomeness!
Please pray for this school as there is a unseen restlessness around the area. The children, as I have observed and asked, have had problems sleeping which have included with bad dreams. I have been constantly praying for the rest and peace from Jesus to fall in this area for the kids to be refreshed to keep up with their studies. May His angels ever watch over this area. And may more of His presence be realized from the children as they have just started their relationship with Jesus when they joined the school! Jesus, You’re more faithful and fulfilling than any of us. Let Your presence be felt to break down fear and loneliness in these kids that miss their parents at times.
Much love from India!!
