What a Sunday we had!! Our first stop was with Shalom Baptist Church and City Baptist Church in Guwahati. That is also where we had training on Saturday. Brother Siekbert preached a tremendous salvation message and afterwards we had a short time of fellowship. It was a blessing to spend time with people that are different in language and culture, yet we have the same Holy Spirit living within us.

Exhausted and excited would be an accurate description of how I feel this evening! Today was a joy. The people here in Guwahati have been such a blessing to us and were very pleased that we women came with the team. We started the morning by getting to know each other and asking questions. Tammy, the other missionary wife, is a great teacher and did a wonderful job sharing why it is so important to teach our children the things of the Lord. I taught on what the Bible shows us about Noah's wife. After a break for lunch, Tammy showed how to use object lessons in teaching our children. The last lesson was about a wise mouth versus a foolish mouth. That one really hurt and I was the one teaching!!!
We ended the day having dinner at the hotel, showering, packing, and preparing for tomorrow. We will take our first train ride in India tomorrow afternoon!! Please be praying. I have attached a few pictures from our hotel. I will take my phone tomorrow to take pictures I can post.
Thank you for sharing our journey! Your love and prayers mean so much!!

Well, today is the day we head to India!! I am testing my ability to update the blog through email. It will make it quicker when we might catch a brief moment of internet during our journey. At the moment we are sitting at Starbucks having coffee and using the internet. Randy is trying to finish a few last minute reports. Road travel is hard on office work!
Our dear friends the Higleys will pick us up at Christa's at 3 pm for the trip to Boston. I will try to check in once we land in London and before the Delhi connection.
May you enjoy the next few weeks as we take you into the Northeast corner of India. We are blessed to be going back to see "old" friends " and make new ones.
