We had very enthusiastic worship songs

Breaking into groups to practise skits.
I was asked to judge the skits.

Action songs

Everybody wants to learn new songs both in English and Hindi

The meeting ended at 4 pm with a loud cheer for the Lord.
Tomorrow 10 am there is a YWAM prayer meeting in church.

Hi Amrita! I so enjoyed the photos of these children. Having 250 is amazing! May the Lord bless and grow the seed planted this day! Bless you for loving and caring for them.

Oh dear Lady . so wonderful a time of worship. I delight in the beauty of it. How wonderful!
I trust your mother is doing better? I do hope so. We are becoming involved in more lives of children around us as well. Little girls from Doves class pleading to come over to play . A new child called and her parents dropping her off tomorrow. He had asked me you know if I would be willing. Now Bless God it is he I am depending on to make me able. These children are often impoverished. I am here Mother of many. Trusting to love the hearts of those who would need to know this love. As are you.
