Kayla in India

June 8, 2010Katie

I love that Brettley has been posting more pictures of the team in India.  I think the team has been totally captivated by the AIDS/HIV orphanage…

I love the pictures of the children praying…and being prayed over.

I can only imagine what the team feels like seeing these children over and over…I know Kayla wrote how attached she is becoming to one in particular…

From Kayla – Mom, Today was our last day at the HIV/AIDS orphanage.  And it was really hard.  I told Madhavi, the girl I basically held onto the whole time I was there every time, that I loved her today.  And I’ve only been there four times.

The team is starting to look they belong in Hyderabad, wearing the clothing, that is so beautiful.

They have also adjusted to the food I think.  This is a shot of …breakfast?

And here, I guess is their version of a rooftop swimming pool during some of their free time in the 115º heat.

My daughter is experiencing some radical changes in thinking about life working with these kids.

And all of them are learning so much about greatfulness and thanks for God’s mercy and love.

They are giving of themselves in a world that needs a lot of giving.

And I love that my daughter is experiencing this.  And I’m sure these children are as well.

Again, thanks to Brettley Ruggles for the awesome photography she is posting so I can share with you what the team is doing.

This picture reminds of that song I sang when I was little…”red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus loves the little children of the World.”

    Katie, I love, love, love these pictures. What an incredible experience for her. And, the fact that she is bringing these kids to Christ and showing them Christs' love is just awesome.

    The pictures of Kayla and the kids always squeeze my heart! I cannot even imagine how this experience is effecting the team members, but I know it is something they will never, ever forget. India is going to leave a big mark on their hearts. And I know God will use this time to strengthen each of them in a special way. Prayers continue.

    What an awesome experience Kayla is having. God is truly blessing her and all those precious little children from India. I wish everyone would realize that no matter what color you are. That we are all God's little children.
