What a day of contrasts. First we dedicated a water well right by the side of a fetid waddie that previously was their only source of water without walking miles. Sue cut the tape to emulate Jenny 7 years ago. Then we visited the night shelter and free medical camp in the red light district. We prayed, gave a message and distributed blankets.
Next we drove into the countryside to support Pastor Daniel (normally our main translator) who’s father died the week before. We were honoured to take part in the memorial celebration of his life, meet the family and share a meal.
In the evening we distributed a banana, egg and a roll at a mercy feeding camp and saw one of Dr Keshoor’s regular surgeries.
Quite a long day. Thanks for your prayers & likes.
Late morning visit to KSK College at Bhattiprolu (where we were honoured to open the new dormatories two years ago). 1400 young women studying up to A level, then 1st degree and also teacher training. Saw the IT suite and explained ergonomics and effects of prolonged poor posture at the PC. Great to see the standard of learning. This college is now self sustainable from fee paying students and small statutory government payments. 60% scholarship 40% fee paying.
Afternoon at children’s home just down the road from the college. 50 children looked after in one small room, 1 small brick dormitories and one grass hut dormitories. Sang, did magic tricks with a message and played relay games outside on the relatively new concrete road. Last time here it was just a muddy road and we tried to play games keeping kids on a tarpaulin – things have slightly improved. (No pictures to post as forgot to use phone and all on camera.)
Thank you for your continued prayers.
