Hey it’s Rachel here doing my first ever blog in India! I have been having an amazing time out here. I have learnt so much about the culture and met some inspirational people.
It’s lunchtime on the 29th August and am using up a few hours of my free time in the internet cafe. We only have today and tomorrow left in Chennai (which is very sad because i am having an awesome time) and then Wednesday morning we leave for England!
We left at 8.45 this morning and got autos to the Oasis office. When we got there we all packed ourselves into a smallish room and started singing worship songs (from a spring harvest 03 praise books which Oasis just happened to have). We then all prayed together, praying for the work Oasis does, for the Oasis Team and for the Chennai Challenge Team. It was a lovely experience hearing prays from a different language as well as English.
Later on today we are going to the Boys Town for our last activity session, which I am very sad about. We have got very attached to all the boys there and for me, being with them has been my highlight of the trip. I love playing with them and talking to them (even if it involves the game of trying to remember 75 boys names). I love seeing there happy faces when we arrive and see them enjoy the activities that we do with them.
That is all for today, hope my blog has been informative and enjoyable.
