E-Pray February 2020

Dear praying friends,

Thank you so much for praying for our team as we visited India this past month! We are so grateful for your part with us… prayer is the most important! :)

We had a really wonderful trip and hope to share thoughts from the team in the next few months to come. John and I are still in India, along with our son, Daniel, and we have a friend from southern Wisconsin visiting us for a few weeks. Please continue to pray for us as we are traveling to several villages to visit with our Workers and their communities. Thank you!

It is always a challenge to try and share some of our experiences with you… we wish that you all could just come and visit for yourselves one day!

One of the highlights of the trip for me this year was when we were able to visit the leprosy colony in our city and spend the whole day with them. We have visited them every year since they have moved to the city, but it always seemed that they had to be quick visits. This year we had time to spend just sitting with them, and it was really wonderful! We brought food for the whole community and sat while they cooked it, sharing some small toys, like balls, and little matchbox cars, and a big highlight, bubbles! All the kids (& adults) really enjoyed playing! It is amazing how much we feel like we have talked and heard their stories and shared our own when we do not speak each other’s language! But somehow, playing, and watching, and laughing together, seeing their families interact with each other, somehow we feel that we have shared a little of our lives with each other.

We did actually hear a few of their stories, as John translated as they explained to the doctor while he was cleaning and treating their wounds, or other ailments. Please pray for their needs, so many challenges, dealing with the effects of leprosy on their physical bodies, but also emotionally, as the society yet rejects them. We are soooo thankful that most of them in that community do have the Truth and therefore have Hope and deep joy! We are so thankful for their friendship!

We are so thankful for your friendship, too!
Thank you, again, for praying!
Many blessings! Much love,
The Nanda’s :)
