Fun Amongst the People ~Day 1

Today was our first day in Dehli and let me tell you... We were running on low sleeping fumes, but we were so excited to be amongst the people we love.

First, we went to pick up a team member we were so eagerly waiting to see, Kaytiln. She has been in Kolkata doing intern work at an NGO organization and she was reunited with her mother after 3 months!!! Our team is almost complete... Tomorrow our two translators from Kolkata will be joining us and they are so much part of our team!

Today we were out and about doing a little shopping and familiarizing ourselves with such a beautiful city. It is so green here and the smog isn't so bad! It really has been an amazing day... No matter how tired we were! We walked through a small little market before we headed to the radio station.

Our friend, Vinita Shaw, who we are partnering with; invited us to visit the radio station were they talk about things in India that are simply not spoken of. I believe it is easier for people to pretend such horrible things are not happening than to hear and believe the hurt and death that so many go though. Vinita and her team talk about the value of a girl child and encourage people to see the girl child less of a burden but more as a beautiful life. A lot of women in India have a great burden when they have a baby girl, because they instantly think of the dowry they will have to pay when the girl marries or they wonder who is going to take care of them when they get old. This is the way of their society and even though these are their struggles we can not understand... We have our own struggles they probably cannot understand. But we are here to share the worth of every human life and that life begins at conception and no matter what you have done in your past that you are deeply loved by the Father and he is waiting there with open arms. Vinita did say in the past three years there has been a decrease in girl child deaths... Praise the Lord!

Tomorrow we will be at Disha Foundation, just loving on girls and sharing the fruits of the Spirit through workshop that my Soroski sisters have put together. Pray we would love without boundaries and unity would be strong.
