Hi! This is Jordan's mom.  For some reason she has not been able to post on this blog so she ask me to let you know about this problem.  She will post as soon as she is able.

She is really enjoying working with the children.  She greatly appreciates your prayers.  She is hoping to post some pictures soon.

God's Blessings!

Traffic and such...

Well I have reached my destination!  Thank you all so much for your prayers!  I am doing well other than suffering from jet lag but hopefully I will be over that soon. 

Here are some more pics..  Some of these I took from our taxi window of the traffic.  It is so crazy!  there is honking all the time but over here it doesn't mean you are upset it means you are coming through.  And there are no lanes over here... it is just like a big mob of cars trying to get ahead of each other.  :)  And they drive on the opposite side of the road than we do so that adds a little to the excitement of the experience.  ;D
There are a TON of motorcycles that weave in and out and for most of them it is their car.  There are usually two riders and the other day I saw one were they had 4 piled on!  a father, mother, and two children!  Most of the women over here ride side saddle!

This is a rickshaw...

And you all know what this is!  ;D

This is a banana field.  No corn and soybeans over here!  I also saw a sugar cane field.

Today I went to this store... the one with the green sign... with Michele to get a few things and i got a small pack of 10-12 oreos for the equivalent of 50 cents American money!

Hello all!  Thought I would share a couple pics. with you all!  For those of you interested I flew from Bloomington, IL, to Atlanta, Georgia.  From there I flew to Amsterdam, Netherlands.  Sorry I didn't get any pics. of Amsterdam there weren't really any good shots.  But to give you an idea of what it was like I thought we were flying into IL when I looked out the plane window.  It was very flat, but it had a few more trees than IL.  ;)

Then from Amsterdam I flew to Mumbai, India.  And only have one more flight to go today.

Here is a pic. I took from the airplane yesterday on the way to Amsterdam.  It was soooo beautiful!  It looked like we were flying over a sea of clouds!

Here are a few pics. taken from our window in the hotel...

All the blue you are seeing are blue tarps and they serve as roofing on most of the houses.

It is sooooo packed here!  Just wall to wall houses!  It was not raining when I took this picture thankfully but they told us that they are in their rainy season right now.  So it has been raining off and on the whole time we have been here.  Wish we could send some of it back home! ;)

And I thought this was funny!  There are two cows down there right smack dab in the middle of the city!  :D

Well, hope you enjoyed!  I will try to post more pics. as soon as I can.  It may be a day or two depending on how soon I can get connected.
