It is thirty days till lift off. The only thing I dread is the fifteen hours on the plane to India and the trip home. I have been trying to prepare myself mentally, spiritually and physically for this trip. Although I have a passport I have to request a visa to visit. It is nice having a son who helps take care of things like this. He mailed off our visa permissions yesterday. I was so excited to go to the mail box yesterday and receive $15 for the buffalo campaign. There are friends in Shreveport who are designing a T-shirt for the Buffalo campaign. I am so thankful to have people who have given these last few week and who have a heart to want to help reach other nations. Please pray for the Mercy29 home in India and for the people of India. I personally want to thank all of you who have given funds for Mercy29, you are changing the history of India and in the life of a child.
I have received letters from Praveen over the past few weeks that I wish to share.
How are you mam? How the fund raising event going on? We all the pastors are praying for you and the team and for your safe journey.
There is a lot of need of sewing machines. If there are any sponsors we can buy many sewing machines as there are many women who are interested in learning tailoring school. There are many girls who are being ready for sale.
The exchange rate of an American Dollar is 45. Rupees but here in the airport or outside the airport they will pay you around 40 rupees. There is nothing to pay at the airport or nothing to pay to the people in the airport. If any servant like who carries your bags and others etc…You can pay him around 100 rupees which are 2 dollars. There is nothing to pay to any one before meeting me. After your landing I will be there in the airport and I & pastors will receive you over there mam.
As you are fighting and raising the funds for the poor and the fund should be helpful for the poor and needy that is my policy. Bro Lyle knows about that and for that only he was much satisfied with me and my works.
One more is as we know about the widows who are called untouchable women and unwanted people in the society. It is s great curse for them. You don’t believe that there are villages called widows village where there are 800 widows in it. All of them are outside of the town. I had seen them and cried for them as many of the young girls are also widows over here. These young women and girls who don’t have any self employment they are going for prostitute business as they don’t have enough food for feeding their Kids.
Finally I would like to say that, To fulfill the needs of the people in India, mainly for the girls and for the widows and for the children, and for the pastors we need your prayers as prayers are the biggest gift for fulfilling the needs of the people through Mercy 29.There is no compulsion in giving the gifts to anyone. According to your wish and by the Mercy of God towards the people you can.
Keep faith on me and I will provide you good accommodation and food and I had arranged good medical doctor who will be taking care of your health of all your days you stay in India’s promise you that I will not let the guests to be disappointed or to feel lonely among their stay in India.
Hope to hear from you mam.
In his Service,
Mercy 29 India
