Greetings from India! Our team is finally united as the second part of the group arrived on the 12th. We are staying at the Mennonite Brethren Centenary Bible College in a city called Shamshabad, near Hyderabad. The college faculty and students have made us feel very welcomed. We have a wonderful kitchen staff that makes amazing food! They even accommodate to our eating needs by going extremely light on the spiciness.
Yesterday (Friday), we joined the college students and administrators for their chapel service. We were asked to perform a few songs for them, and Darren was asked to preach. All in all, it was a very enjoyable service. Afterwards, we had chai tea with everyone and we were honored with a traditional Indian welcome. We were each given flower garlands to wear and took time to introduce each one of us. We have greatly appreciated the amazing hospitality of the college and are certainly blessed to be able to spend a few days at such a beautiful campus.
