INDIA at last....

Sorry it's been so long since I have last updated my blog! I have been in India for over a week now! I am really enjoying the warm weather, chai, and spicy food! :) And, I have also been learning a lot about the culture here, and how "hot" and "cold" cultures can learn from each other! I have learned that my parents did a great thing in teaching me to be flexible, and how to live in a community! Those things are very important to know here, because that's what we're doing! :) (thanks Mom and Dad!!!) 

We have been traveling a bit, building relationships and taking photos for our book project! The people here are very hospitable, even to strange foreigners. So far God has really blessed us with opportunities to serve and meet people! It's been a blessing! I am preparing to preach this coming Sunday also, which will certainly be a learning and stretching experience! But, I am looking forward to it! 

Here are some prayer requests you can keep in mind:

1) continued health for our team! we haven't had too many problems, but we'd love to keep it that way! :) some of us are experiencing colds/nasal congestion and back pain, so please pray that God brings healing to those things!

2) those of us who are sharing this weekend, and all of us throughout the rest of outreach! Pray for boldness and strength. Also please pray for good translation and that communication is effective! I will be preaching on Sunday, and two others will be giving testimonies. 

3) continued opportunities to serve, build relationships, and take photos! and that we would be an encouragement to those we meet! 

Thanks for all of your prayers, support, and love! It is a blessing to hear from you guys!

Following Him,

With all of those photographers you're with, you should be able to come up with some good pictures. :)

Hope your preaching went well yesterday.
