India part I

If you look out the window from where I am writing you see mountain after mountain green, lush beautiful.
We are here with John's cousin Matthew and Annie and their son. It is a wonderful Hill Station up in the cool, clear air, cloud touching, mountains.
We have meet so many wonderful people all along in Bali, Java, on the travels, and here. I just wish my eyes were a camera that could bring you all the views we have had of life and the world.
The look on the faces of people around the world is the same, concern on some faces, wearyness on others, joy, hope, wonder. We are indeed one Family in God's good eyes. Mother Teresa wrote, If we have trouble with one another it is because we've forgotten we are all related to one another.
I have had very limited internet time so have not been able to keepup here but willhave several posts upon my return.
Know that you are certainly not alone i the world, pray for peace, and live the change you wish to see, (Gandhi)

God abides. This I have seen and witnessed.

A town of 900 Christians. All who are apart of the family of that place, all who worship and live together and who are working to make their town a place where the young will stay, not have to go to the cities where they could get lost. Craft is one way they are trying to make it good.
We met a man whose work it is to climb to the top of tall palm trees to put in a tap and then when the day is over to climb up to get the syrup from the flowers and then boil it down and it becomes sugar. A wonderful crystal sugar that is used in cooking. He is a tenent and has to give a percentage to the landowner but the rest he uses for himself and can sell.
Please know that all are in our prayers and we covet yours as we continue this journey to share your love under the equator.
God abide

Grace and peace be yours now and always!

I just printed out a conversion chart for the currency we'll be using an few days in Bali. Wow, It is time to multiply our worth.
What we are worth here is worth a million of theirs...

And friends what we believe we are worth is priceless in the sight of God.
Remember that!
Don't be afraid, only believe.

I'll come to this when I can along the way. You all take care of each other now, ya hear!
God abide
