Two Word Pictures Of India

Today I want to share two things that have been written by other people.

First is a story about an adoption, An Australian adoptive mother searches for, finds, and visits the mother of her children from India. It is estimated that 1/2 to 3/4 of the population of Chennai lives in a slum like the family she talks about. Every client visit I have been on has been similar to this, if much shorter in time. Read the story here. It gives a great picture about how real people live.

One long story is not enough... I also wanted to share something written by Rob Wegner of Granger Community Church. This story about his visit to a remote village with Anon who was spending every weekend bringing the gospel. I would love to share many stories we know about how people are sharing here. From those setting up community colleges, orphanages, training centers. Others that are setting up stores, restaurants, banks all as "Business as Missions" to reach clients, workers, and suppliers. There are lawyers providing services to those that usually don't get justice. There are students here to reach an overlooked people group. The rich and middle class. All these workers are from a variety of nations, many from India. So while Rob's story is what you think of typical and not at the same time, let in encourage you in your sharing.

Thank You for taking the time to read. Also thank you for letting us know you received our postcard. It is great hearing from you, keep the encouragements coming.
