Dear Tesla~A letter while Mommy is in India

Dear Tesla,

    Hi honey!  How are you?  I am doing very good helping with the children here. I am raising money to buy kitchen tools, like knives, cutting boards, vegetable peelers and other things for the orphanage. They only have two cutting knives in the kitchen!!

   I am also raising money to buy the boys a new cricket bat because their’s broke. The boys play cricket which is similar to baseball but there is only one base and home plate. They taught me to play and said I am really good at it. My friend Caitlin also likes to play cricket with the boys. Their coach invited Caitlin and I to play in the cricket tournament this weekend and if we are not working on painting a fence or a school, we will play with them! I very excited to be asked to play on their team.

    We have sanded the boy’s and girl’s playground equipment and the big fence around the campus. It has been hard work!  We are finished painting the playgrounds and have started painting the fence. It makes my back hurt, but the children’s school and playground look so pretty!!

     Today my classmates are going to see the new land the school has bought so they can build more homes for children with no parents. My classmates will also go see a beach, but the beaches here are not pretty. They are dirty and no one swims in them. I’m going to stay at the children’s school and help with things that need to be done.

   I have been going to prayer meetings everyday and really enjoy hearing the children sing church songs. My classmates and I sing and pray with them and we read the Bible everyday. The children here love Jesus very much just like you and I do! After prayer we like to talk and take photos. Tonight I am going to give them message at the boys home and tell them about David and Goliath.

   I love you very much and miss you! I will be home again in 11 days. I still have so much work to do here but I can’t wait to see you again.

Love,

Mommy
