INDIAN JOY

One of the more emotionally overwhelming moments in my recent visit to India was an evening in a small tribal village in Maharashtra. We were privileged to help dedicate a new well that had been dug for the village by Maharashtra Village Ministries. One hundred villagers gathered for the festivities in the simple village meeting house, also built by MVM. We sang and told stories and honored those who had donated the land and invested in the effort. The joy and grace of this group of people will be with me for a long time.
