Really, REALLY alive. This is an awesome place to see. India is crazy/wild/chaotic/noisy/indescribable but the place where I am staying is the most amazing place in the world. I’m warning you, I may be a bit different when I come home. The good news is I’m pretty sure most of you are ready to see a different side of me.
The prayers are working and I haven’t been afraid once since I landed. I’m missing the family BUNCHES but God is helping me by giving me new things to focus on – like “when is my next shower,” and “how long ago did my deodorant fail?”
Growing up in Zollicoffer has prepared me for India more than you’d think. Two days ago I used the bathroom in an open field. And there was very little to hide behind. Reminded my of all those afternoon spent 4-wheeling. I also went to church where I didn’t understand much and there was no A/C. Thank you Flatt Creek C of C! I’m acclimating pretty well.
This is me sampling the local transportation.
Getting a coke at the convenience store.
The TEAM bringing home groceries. Yesterday we went to a local water park where I swam in a pair of leggings and a long shirt. I haven’t looked that good in a bathing suit in years!
Well, it’s another 25 minute walk home in the boiling sun. We’ve got lots of fun things to do this evening and by “fun” I mean a bucket shower. It’s more awesome than you know.
If you are sitting in A/C on high speed internet, surrounded by people you love, then complain about nothing!
Sending a big, sweaty, smelly hug from India,
