Our team will actually be a bit different from the rest. We will be traveling outside of the Hyderabad area to a rural area called Athmakur and staying in a rented house there for the week. We leave today and won’t be returning to St. Ann’s until Wednesday night. We’ll do some additional training here on Thursday and Friday with the large group, but we will be traveling back to Athmakur on those days as well to continue to serve in the same area.
We were asked to lead a service at one the local churches in Athmakur today, so we will be leaving St. Ann’s right after breakfast for that. Then, during the week we will be spending some time visiting the families of the church. We will also be serving at a local school everyday, where we will be sharing a lesson with the children there as well as simply spending time with the kids. In addition to that, we will be speaking at three different school assemblies about character development. The children that we will be working with range in age from five to fifteen, all of who speak the local language here in India, Telagu. So we will be traveling to all of our sites with one of the staff here that will translate for us. He is such a blessing!
We are so excited for what the LORD has in store for our team this week!
We are so excited about the work ahead of us! Please continue to keep us all in your prayers! Specifically, if you could be praying for one of our leaders, Tom, who is diabetic. His insulin was accidently frozen, and is now unusable. Be praying that the LORD provide the proper medication for him, and that his body would react positively with it. May we be in complete dependence of the Father.
Thank you! We love you!
