I am in love...
I am totally and utterly in love with this place.
The children here absolutely radiate the love of Jesus.
I haven't stopped crying for the last 12 hours, during prayer and worship last night I was so fully overwhelmed with how big and how good the God that we serve is. That He chose to bring me, from a thousands and thousands of miles away, to actually see what his love looks like.
I see the face of God everytime I look into a pair of these beautiful brown eyes.
Last night after a day full of fun and games and tons of singing and dancing, I was able to tuck some of the boys into bed, and I walked out of that room aching. To hold them and love them and pray over them, is the greatest honor I think I have ever had. I really can't comprehend how I can be so in love with them after only knowing them for 36 hours, but somehow, here I am, totally raw and completely in love.
Because of these boys and my time here, I will never be the same.
I will write more later, but right now, I literally have four boys (Sandeep, Mahender, Neeraj & Saurabh) crawling all over me demanding my attention ;-). I LOVE THIS PLACE!
Overwhelmed by His love and wishing I never had to leave,
