Mumbai

As I am writing this, I am blessed to be sitting in a room next to about twelve ladies reading scripture, praying and worshipping together. Most of the ladies are orphans and a few are older and living on their own. It’s an awesome site considering the country I am in and the lack of Christians in this country. It is beautiful to hear these prayers in Hindi and the sound of simply a tambourine to compliment these beautiful voices being lifted up.

I have contemplated how to start this initial letter from Mumbai,I have decided so people don’t worry, I will simply post a note of encouragement. When I arrive back in the states I will have several notes I will post examining different experiences. What I can say to this point is, Wow! This place has really struck me and these experiences have been awe-inspiring. I have honestly wept bitterly over many things I have seen that I would love to imagine don’t exist. I have been hurt to see the pain that some have to go through. But I have also been touched to see how God is working here in spite of some terrible circumstances for many people.

A picture to give an idea of where I have been…
