Sunita Williams and I


Sunita Williams, an Indian American astronaut returned to earth in the Atlantis space shuttle a few hours ago after spending 195 days in space.All India is rejoicing.

Left-Kalpana Chawla right- Sunita Williams
Kalpana Chawla was an Indian born astronaut and space mission specialist who lost her life with 7 crew members when the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated upon re-entry into the earth 's atmosphere in Feb 2003. We mourned for her as a nation.
While Indian women are zooming around in space yours truly is trying to match her wits with the computer.There was a time I was hesitant to learn how to email.I 've come a long way.
Thank you friends for being a light unto my path, specially Carol-Ann and Pai.I 've got a family friend, who was our student group spiritual mentor ages ago.David graduated from Prairie Bible Institute, married an American girl, had 7 kids, lived in North America for over 20 yrs. He 's now back in India.He is a professional photographer and graphic and web designer,but he does not have time.The Lord has provided friends from across the 7 seas.

4 Fertilize my soul:

I love how the internet, especially blogging, has connected me with new friends from all over the globe, new Christian friends especially! Its an amazing tool!

Carol-Ann said...

Hmmm....Prairie Bible Institute! When did David graduate? I was there from 1981-1984!

Blogging means a lot to me its a lease of life. An education in itself. Becky.

I 'll ask David about the years, maybe he was there during the early eighties. His name is David Phillips and he married Jenny (they are divorced now).His website is www.riverfriends.com
Maybe you know him Carol-Ann
