Prayers A Plenty

Disposable red clay cup for chai. Yes, you drink the chai and then toss the cup in a metal container. You can only use once because it is not sealed at all. Love it! Today I shared Thrive Life Skills with a particular work that is going to use it. Great response. For tonight, big pray

Jewels In A Crown

Queen Victoria and I in the same picture – who would have imagined? This was a quick “tourist stop” on our way from one place of ministry to another. A favorite today was several hours at “Jewels In A Crown.” Lovely smiling faces of women who are learning

Light in the Darkness

This man made India street chai for me. I drank it in a disposable red clay cup… (Picture to follow.) Delicious! I asked if I could take his picture and he turned on the light so he could be seen well! Today we saw two well-run businesses that employ women who come out of the br

Waiting for the Fruit

Sarah looks happy, doesn’t she? Today we went to a village where the people make a living by recycling from the next door dump and trash piles. The small room was filled with women and children. The women meet twice a week for sewing classes and devotional. I was privileged to g

A New Song

Lovely Hands learning to sew. This was the first day for a new group of women to begin the 9 month sewing course. What a delight it was to share devotions with them and then pray and “bless” each set of hands before they began training. The stories would bring tears. God l

Wish You Were Here

We worshiped at William Carey Baptist church founded in 1809. It was a great privilege to walk the grounds and think on the past of such a work. We had dinner at the home of a woman with whom we are working this week. A lovely ending to the day. Tomorrow we take a 2 hour train ride to

What a Night!

What a night! We arrived in Kolkata at 2:00 am and waited LONG for Sarah’s bag to arrive. I was starting to look for the baggage claim numbers to make a claim, praying “please Jesus”. I turned to look one last time and it popped up through the chute. It was literally

Clarity, Encouragement, and Sewing!

Teaching sewing! For those of you who know my “beginning” on the mission field, you will understand how fun this was for me. We spent the day at Sunshine House, a home for women coming out of trafficking. I helped them through the process of making a new skirt from one the

Because He lives

Today was the day! The class planned a wonderful ceremony. A memory we will not soon forget. They sang “Because He lives” not knowing it was one of my father’s favorite songs. There was a sense of accomplishment and joy… And family. Many photo ops! Now, prayers
