On Thursday I posted a cryptic Facebook update saying, “This delay in blog posts from India is brought to you by the number two.” I have a story to tell…
Today started early again – I haven’t been able to sleep past 6am yet. I woke up and did a little reading before deciding to take a walk around the hospital complex to take some photos as people began their days.
The conversations I came to India for have begun, and in the first two sessions held yesterday with Veeru and Nancy Henry, a beautiful story of life, love and their vocation as medical missionaries has begun to emerge.
My flight arrived to Raipur from Mumbai on time and I’m currently waiting for the ambulance/jeep from the hospital to pick me up for the 1.5 hour drive to Mungeli.
Well, I’m safe and sound and a little more awake than I should be at 11:45 pm IST (11:15 am PST) after the flight to Mumbai. Everything was on schedule and the flight went as expected.
The day is finally here after seven months of planning, some very encouraging times, a big setback, and more than a few patience-trying days. I’m ready to board my flight to Mumbai.
