India Visiting








Memories of India come flooding back. Many of you will remember my Husband, Miss E (21), and three others from our small church, visited special friends in India last November. You can follow their travels and adventures by clicking on "India" in my labels' cloud on the right. For the best background post on our relationship with "J" and India click here.




Four years ago J and his beautiful wife M came to Australia and stayed with us for two weeks.






Our children have surely grown since then (but this unposed photo is still one of my all-time favourites).








We enjoyed fellowship, food, ideas and much more. J and M shared several times with our church and loved the rural location and wild kangaroos!

Tomorrow night J and M will be arriving from India to stay in our home and share with our community once more. Their visit will be a little shorter this time but the inspirational impact of their visit will be no less. We feel very blessed to have known J for 25 years and feel honoured to have them stay in our home again. There may be less time for blogging - but you will know why.

Enjoy your time with your friends!! I can see how the beach shot is one of your all time favorites; it was a beautiful capture! The photo with the kangaroo made me laugh. No questioning that shot was taken in Australia!! You have a beautiful beach there too.

It is wonderful to have friends who live in such a contrasting country to your own. Sharing of cultures is one of the things I most enjoy about travelling and meeting people. That family photo is a classic. One to always treasure.

Oh Karen, I pray a time of great fellowship and special sharing of all the LORD is doing. I think of the verse in
2 Corninthians 2:13 when Paul says, "because his spirit was refreshed by you all". May this be true for all of you too.

Your pictures were lovely, the kangaroo caught in the background...perfect.

Nancy said...

I hope, actually I know, your family and your dear friends will have a lovely time together during the next few days. And yes, like you, that capture of your little people facing the waves is one that I recognise, and is one of my favourites too.

What a fantastic experience for you all, visiting, sharing, & learning from each other.

The photo of your kids in the water made me smile, I can see why it would be a favorite.
