Long time no write!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well and rejoicing in the Lord!

Sydney and I are doing well here. Aside from the internet connections being very unreliable, there's not much to complain about. Language study is still a challenge for us every day and we can always use your prayers.

We have been bless to be able to participate in a verity of activities during the past few weeks. These include celebrating the Birthday of Kerala, attending a wedding engagement party, and visiting the houses of some church members.

Teaching has been good. There were a few rough spots, but lately we have seen improvements. We are getting to know the kids more and more. We've recently been given more responsibilities around the house which is a huge blessing! And we are building stronger relationships with Pappa Joseph and Mommy Aneena.

I will write more later, but for now, here are a few photos from our last few weeks.

This is the elephant that was in our front yard. And all the teachers are standing next to it. It's pretty easy to spot Sydney and I :-)

These are a few of the girls who live at Aswasa Bhavan

The kids wait eagerly (and expectantly!) for a snack after an outing to the beach. Look at those eyes! They're all fixed on the treat that is just beyond arm's reach.

That's all for today. I will write soon!

Peace and blessings to you all!
