well hey everyone! we’ve had a good day! however this morning in true Indian fashion we ordered vehicles to go to fort school (a ymca school) but we waited for an hour and then got a phone call asking if we would like a car for 3.. a little bit late for our schedule! so we sorted out some project things for this afternoons english lessons at BV colony (an oasis school) and blue edge (a higher education english class) which was very useful in the end so it was not a complete waste of time! In the afternoon we split of into groups. Some stayed at the YMCA to shop for project things and make a massive twister mat for the boys town on thursday. Others went to blue edge to teach an english lesson which I’ve heard went very well, they were teaching the students about directions, for example the office is next to the toilets. The students seem to enjoy the lesons as they are slightly different from the usual lesson they would get. And the last group went to the BV colony, we taught a smaller age group of about 12, 13, 14 year olds. We did plurals which I think was quite challenging for them but it was good fun, even when the boys were slightly roudy. In the evening it started to rain.. a lot! we walked to dinner with water past our ankles! however fun this was for us it is not so good for the boys at the boys town as thier cottages start to flood and some boys may have to be sent away to stay with any family or friends they have. If you would like to pray for us please pray that all the boys stay so they can enjoy the programe we have planned and to avoid disruptions with school etc.
thank you all for you love and support!
with love from india! Suzie and the rest of the team 🙂
