I thought I should get this blog up and going before I sent out my news letter. I've been wanting to send them out for awhile, but I was waiting on my prayer cards so I could send them at the same time. Now they are all here, so this week I will be getting them on the way to your very own mail box!!

The past few weeks have been pretty busy. I'm still in the process of fund raising. It's a bigger task than I thought it would be, but I've had a couple encouraging meetings with people. I just need to keep India and what Dad has called me to always in mind and not let our enemy discourage me.

Today I went to the prayer service of my great, great Aunt Sara. She went to be with Dad on Thursday after 106 years in this world. When my Grandpa passed away in October she really went down hill. About one week after he died, she went from living on her own (yes, she still lived in her own apartment at 106 years old!!) and going to visit the "old people", as she would call them, to being in the nursing home. Often in the past few years she would say that she thought Dad forgot about her here. But I know that's not true. I know Dad kept her here because she was an amazing woman and touched many people's lives. She will be greatly missed, but I know that she is where she longed to be for so long.

Well, I guess that's all for my first post on here. Have a wonderful day!
