We’ve been eating most of our food with our hands…which takes a while because we’re inexperienced but I’m sure we’ll find it more natural after 3 weeks. (Kevin, Dahlia, Helena)
The roads of India are…different…to say the least : )
After a long day of speaking in some of the local colleges, we got to go shopping for Indian clothes! Two of the girls got mehendi on their hands (left: Helena right: Dahlia). It was great to bond with the local pastors wife who helped us bargain and enjoyed “girl time”.
Coconut water is a big health kick in the States now…and we got to try it straight out of the coconut! (Me, Helena, Andrew, Sam)
On Sunday our team got split up and we all went to different churches. Cara (left) and I got to go to a village church together where Cara sang and I spoke…they told me to speak for 45 minutes to an hour! There were about 80 girls who were mainly from a local nursing school. They were so friendly and everyone wanted to talk, take pictures, and share their stories with us. Cara and I were exhausted when we returned to our “home” at 5:15pm (we left at 7:30am!).
After church the pastors wife bought some local fruit and let Cara and I try it!
This morning I got to teach Helena how to wash her clothes without a washing machine…a useful skill I learned in the village!
