Day 8, India Summer 2012 – Buster the Wonder Pup


The following is excerpts from my journal from my most recent trip to see the girls of STEPS Home in India. 

July 30 –

We got to sleep in a little this morning, then headed to the office. Isaac asked Mike to share a little of his story with the staff. Then we planned out everything that needed to be accomplished during the week. Theresa & I got to work on some letters, and Mike went off with Ben and Rohan.

Around lunchtime, Rohan came back to the office with a surprise… Sitara’s birthday present from her parents. A very adorable, rollie-pollie Golden Retriever puppy!

Day 7, India Summer 2012 – Church & Sweet 16


The following is excerpts from my journal from my most recent trip to see the girls of STEPS Home in India. 

July 29 –

Church starts at 8:30 and is over a half hour away, so we had to be up early today! Emmanuel Methodist Church had a guest preacher – he was very good and engaging. Normally church lasts two hours, but after the service today, they did a special time of thanking the retiring secretary and welcoming the newest addition to the pastoring staff, which took another hour. But Isaac took us out before it was through, because we had to get back to the house to celebrate Sitara’s 16th birthday!

On our way home, we picked up four of Sitara’s friends. Isaac and Tara had the party catered and, much to (Kansas team’s) Gail’s delight they bought chips! And it was the biggest bag of chips any of us had ever seen!

August 2012 Ministry Update


Happy August!

I hope it’s cooling off by you – I know I’m enjoying the cooler (upper) 80s that I have come home to after being in the tropical heat of India!

My time in India was just as wonderful as I could have hoped. I couldn’t get enough hugs from those dear little girls. Read my summary of the trip in the picture below.
