Here at last! :)

We arrived safely and are enjoying time with friends this morning in Delhi. We are reminded how different life is here; within the first 15 min of our 45 min ride from the airport to our friends' house, we saw a fatal motocycle accident and a teenage beggar with amputated arms tapping on our window at a stoplight.
Of course our driver wanted more than we originally agreed on and the bank we exchanged money at tried to give us less than their displayed exchange rate. Our driver couldn't find the address we were going to so as we were driving up and down darkened corridors that all looked exactly the same at 11 pm, we started praying hard when his car stalled and then refused to start. We look at each other and thought, 'plan B?' Thankfully God doesn't need plan B and had us safely to where we needed to go before long.
We are excited to go to church for Palm Sunday with friends, before we leave this afternoon for our next city to visit.
So far the chai is just as good as I remember...

I wonder how many of the 50 movies you & Eric watched? May you know the presence of the Lord near you each day. Hugs, Dad

Praying for you!! Our sermon this morning was from 1 Pet. 1:3-7 about suffering through trials and how that produces endurance and increased faith! Keep your eyes on Jesus! Be safe.
