  1. Hi Tina,

    I read with interest your passion for India. I think such great things are happening there. Did you read that article in the December issue of National Geographic. It really gives one hope. Not sure where all you were located and if you ever crossed paths with the Aroles or were in Jamkhed but this particular group sounded incredible.

    Good luck.

  2. I love India. Look for my next post with video. I have been to Kerala, which is my favorite place. To Mumbai, New Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Chenni, Kota. I haven’t seen the National Geopraphic but will take a look. Hope to go back as soon as possible.

  3. Share your love for India and Indians and have been involved now in Indian missions for over 40 years, now seeking Indian international students who will return to reach hidden people groups and unreached nations not only in India but throughout South Asia, the Middle East and China…check out our international student ministry website for more details, http://www.OSMission.org
