India…Here We Are!

After a day and a half of travel, we finally reached our first hotel in Chenai, India tonight!  We took about a 19.5 hour flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with an hour stop in Taipei, Taiwan for gas.  We got a day hotel for about 4 hours there, then flew another 3 hours or so to get here.  Tonight we are in a nice hotel and will leave tomorrow for another 10-12 hours of bus and train travel to eventually reach Tenali.

I actually feel surprisingly good after all the travel, although I think that foreign plane food is about as bad as it gets and that’s all I’ve had for the past day and a half.  I did have half of Jon Gaw’s burger at the airport in Malaysia and it’s the best Burger King has ever tasted to me!
The team is definately a bit tired after all that travel, but it’s nothing a good nights sleep can’t fix!  Already I have had moments where I sense that God is at work in me, preparing my heart for the rest of the trip.

It was pretty wild riding through the streets of India with lots of honking and crazy driving.  We passed large office buildings and small hutlike villages.  People sleeping on sidewalks and trucks, and people infected with leprosy.  I look forward to what the next 12 days brings.  Please continue to pray for us as we take this last leg of a long journey.  It’s currently a quarter to 1 in the morning here, so I better go get some rest for that journey. 
Thank you again for all your prayers and support.  I’ll keep you posted whenever possible.  Also the teams website will continue to be updated when it can be.
