We Made It!

Well, we made it to India in one piece; exhausted, but in one piece. Today we went to a CSP project (Child Survival Program) about four hours outside of the city. The drive was an adventure in itself, one car even got into a fender bender. The area we went in is way below the poverty line, and infant mortality is very high.

We were welcomed to the rural project by the mothers of the babies, dressed in the most beautiful, colorful, saris. They threw yellow and purple flower petals at us as we came in. What a welcome.

 

The mothers sang to us and gave us coffee and a gift, it was all very touching. Then we had a chance to play with the babies. We blew bubbles and I have never seen children so giddy. They were jumping and dancing and screaming with laughter. They were all so beautiful, the mothers and the children, their smiles could melt anyone’s heart.

 

We were also able to deliver 35 pairs of baby shoes to the project! So amazing.

After long five and a half hour drive back and we are still all in one piece. Thank you for your prayers.
