So much to say about India! I can't even begin to talk about the cultural oppression and corrupt infrastructure, so I am going to just show some images that show the vibrance of the culture and the specifically, the women of all ages!
On another note, we spent time in the state of Goa and Rhajastan mostly. We went all around Goa visiting ministries through YWAM taking pictures, and getting a glimpse of what Godly ministry can do to change and help improve the people and culture. The Hindu people who were told by their Mula (Muslim leader) to stop sending their children to a Christian school because they were praying, etc. actually responded by telling him that they saw very positive changes in their children and that they wanted to continue sending their children to the school. It wasn't long before he started sending his grandchildren!
After we spent time in Goa, we heading north to the state of Rhajastan to visit the Taj Mahal (of course) that was in Uddar Prudesh (the state next to Rhajastan) and then to visit Jaipur, Udaipur, and Jodphur (and the cities in between). We hired a taxi to take us all around so we could stop on a dime to take pictures I found along the way! What a great time! Please enjoy the images. There are so many to chose from, but I really wanted to emphasis the beauty of the culture within India and the women that are so oppressed. If you'd like to hear more, I have so much to say about what we observed and experienced that I could write a book- maybe I will, but for now, for the sake of this blog, I leave you with the images and would love to sit down with you sometime to tell you the stories. For their women, for their culture.

(oh, and we are safe and sound in South Africa right now- loving it) I will blog with some images from Qatar soon! What a country! Hope you are all well! Many Blessings!
