The video above was made by Matt as a quick way for Matthew 10 and Manna Ministries to say thank you to all who support these children in Kismathpur. The donations and prayers go a long way. I just wanted to share it with everyone because I could watch over and over again. I love seeing those little kids smile. They are so grateful for so little.
Matt and I are have some great adventures here in India. We’ve been eating curry three times a day and couldn’t be happier about that! We’ve been surrounded by so many wonderful Indian people who are full of love and curiosity about American culture. It is always so satisfying to be able to move past the communication barriers and have real and meaningful conversations with our friends here. We have so much to learn from people in other cultures which makes international travel a completely invaluable opportunity.
Last night we joined Dr. Pete, founder of Matthew 10, as he shared the love of Christ and the message of the gospel to thousands of people here in Kadapa. No matter what religion people are, they are always eager to hear the message, whether they receive it or not. There is something about hearing the story of Christ’s death on the cross that brings us to a place of humility. It’s a reminder that there is more to life than just what we see in front of us. So much comfort lies in knowing that there is a greater love for us if we just open up and receive it. The world we live in is too hard to bear without that love and comfort and I am thankful for this time as we get to witness its power first hand. There will be three more nights where thousands of people will gather in the middle of this city to hear the story of God’s love and the hope that we can all have in Him. To a people that have nothing more than the clothes on their backs, this is an incredible thing to witness. Thank you to all who have been sending prayers and love our way. We are excited to continue to sharing what we capture.
