Sunrise with the girls is a muffle of joy!  As much as I would have loved to have snuggled down into my B Bag for another hour, but their joy called to me.  They were enjoying the treats from their gift bags which delighted me to see.

After breakfast we had an opportunity to sit down with Dimbeswar to discuss his works and future hopes and plans.  It was most informative to learn of all of the arms of his programs.

School was not in session today, but some of the students came for English classes with the American guests.  We each had a classroom filled with children for a little over an hour.

Raghav came and got me from class for the next program.  WBS students from Guwahati and Manikpur who had completed their first lesson in Assamese came for a presentation of their certificates.  Raghav led a song before announcing that I would speak to the group!  It is always a new story here.  We had about a dozen students and several guests present.

We visited Ruth Gunter Children's Home and saw the new rooms that have been built for the expansion of the Nazaret English Medium School.  We enjoyed the visit with Mitu and Shinu and Sopna.

Saphna had made me a typical Assamese skirt and was excited to see me wear it!

There's always a rush for the computer while the electricity is available.  

Back for a late lunch served in the upper room before our meeting with Raghav, Jayanta and Zeenat, Mama Patgiri, Jaganath, Pratep, Dimbeswar and others.  Each gave a testimony and made a request for support.

We had a little free time to repack before dinner.
Devo was delightful!  Several children had memorized parables and other memory verses in English. They are using the Bibles we brought in 2012!  The songs included both Assamese and English praise songs...LORD, I LIFT YOUR NAME ON HIGH; BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES; and others.  Then the children dramatized three stories in English...Zachaeus, the Good Samaritan and the Ten Bridesmaids!

As they sang the parting song shaking hands all around the circle, I slipped bubblegum into their palms!
