The great life!
Ross, Wes, April, Melissa, Me, Josie, Ted, and Omar
So it is Monday and it is our free day! I am so excited to just walk around and take pictures. Bangalore is like nothing I have ever seen before or experienced. Like one of the guys on my team said " I can't put it in a box". Saturday we did our first two shows and they went really well. Esp. for us being together for only a week! God is totally blowing my mind at this point. He has opened up the door for tons of relationships with people and a friend and I might even go bowling with some indian girls we met this week. How crazy is that. I am going to go bowling in india! HAHAHA
At the same time we are able to build friendship with people, I have never had so many people try to get me to change my religion or my point of view at the same time I am sharing mine with them. It breaks my heart to see so many gods being worshiped when their is only ONE. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers with that.
Sunday we,"De La Paz" (hehe) led worship at a local church for people living here from all over the world. The last thing I expected coming into this trip was to feed those who already knew Him. They were so thankful for the time of worship. One girl even said "It has been so long since I have got to experience God in worship like that I almost forgot how amazing it was". I just stood there totally humbled by the fact that something I get to experience everyday, people here in the field NEVER Get!
We as a team have decided we are the Real World India. lol how funny is that! Anyways I am seriously loving living with these people! They are my family. We laugh constantly together (the fact that I am normally the punt of the jokes has not changed for those wondering), play music like 17 out of 24 out of the day, we talk about God so so much and the rest of the time we soak in the culture and country! This is the life!!! I would not be anywhere else with anyone else then these people (plus Melissa). Please keep us in your prayers and pray that God Moves in mighty ways. Also one of our team members, Wes, woke up sick this morning so healing for him would be wonderful. May God bless you all!
