INDIA182: Day 34!

On the road again. (:
Miss you already George!!

Hectic travel on the trains but felt like Indiana Jones all the same. (:

God is so so amazing!! Apparently the team that I met in Lonavala is in kochi now doing their outreach teaching there for the DTS. Can’t wait to see what’s happening for the next few days! (:
But for now. I sleep and rest. I’m am really really tired. (: haha
Thanks for all the prayers folks! I’m safe in Kochi, India.

Much love from India! 20120825-000838.jpg


INDIA182: Day 33 debrief. . .


OK THIS IS THE LAST DAY OF THE WEEK HERE!! I am beat tired and don’t know how I’m still awake and alive. Haha praise the Lord for the strength that He had provided us!! We of course had to leave the school with a bang of amazingness so that included much running around and puppet shows and songs and skits and all that good stuff which came to the FINAL COUNTDOWN of kids going nuts with actions to songs that we had taught them through out the week and just a great atmosphere of joy from the Lord. (:
And after a many thank you’s, reluctantly, the students hugged us goodbye.
I will always miss you and the many many memories I had with you!! And I pray that you will get more revelation of who God is after we leave than you are having now!!
George & Team: my time with you was a blast of laughter and joy which I will always miss and cherish. (: I will definitely pray to see you again and know that your infectious contagious love will impact many more. (: I love you guys.
Please pray for a smooth day tomorrow as I start to head off by myself to a new location to see what else God has planned for me!! (: also pray for the current affairs of muslim hate videos going out towards north-eastern Indians (which btw look like me) which have resulted in a mass movement of people in many major cities in India from the fear of these videos and also killings.
BUT OUR GOD IS GREATER!! He’s got my back and front. (:
Thank you so so much for your continuous prayers and encouragements as I walk with our Father everyday to see His plan and vision fulfilled.

Much love from India!!

INDIA182: Day 32 debrief. . .


Second to last day here at the school. I’ve really gotten close to these kids and starting to see God work in their lives. Though it was a really hectic and busy schedule with the boys and having small groups with them along with a full school session at night, the whole week coming to an end was worth it when the letters of feedback from the students came to us and we got to read the many testimonies of the impact that God made in their lives; and to find out that the bananas unite game actually spoke to a student radically in the sessions!! Who would have thunk!!
Tonight, we had the chance to head into the boys dormitory and just spend time with them. Haha I ended up spending some time tuning about a dozen guitars but it was so so good to see the smiles and laughs when the guitars were in tune or when we recorded a few songs together.
Today was a satisfying breath. (: though there is much more to do!!
Please pray for the school though as I had found out some struggles with homosexuality have been going on with the boys along with spirit of lust and gossip.
Please pray that God will continue to transform them in to a hope generation that is rising up in India!! And also pray for strength for our team tomorrow as we will start to our final sessions tomorrow!! Let Your glory fall!!

Much love from India!!

INDIA182: Day 31 debrief. . .

Sessions galore!! Full on day waking up at 5am, praying for the day and starting straight up with the whole campus here with songs, icebreakers, and small groups which brought up children up to 50 plus to teach values in character and life! Really really amazing to see the strength that God has brought our whole team through out the day in being able to teach and encourage these brilliant kids here!!
The auditorium exploded with laughter as we did skits and did the schools personal favorite: bananas unite!! And to end the night with a calling message from George and an encouragement to live a life of purity and be a true disciple of Jesus through focus and obedience in Him!
Though there was some frustrations in the small groups that day with all the distractions and getting them to cooperate, God’s grace was really shown towards the gatherings where the kids danced and sang before the Lord.
Thank you Jesus for a wonderful day! (:
Please pray for rest tonight as we continue to have sessions tomorrow with the older grades in the school. And pray for a continued unity in our team as we have only a couple of more days to go to push past our tiredness and see God’s heart in us flowing out to the kids which is a great honor to see God’s glory shown.

Much love from India!!
