We're here!

Hi all,

This is going to be quick because we are exhausted and ready for bed, but we wanted to let you know that we're here safe and sound.

We've had a great time so far, traveling TONS. We flew from O'Hare to Newark, New Jersey, which took 2 hours, then to Mumbai, India, which took 14 hours. From there we drove about 20 minutes to a nice local hotel and then in the morning took a 30 minute flight to Pune. Then we drove three hours to where we are now, which I can neither spell nor pronounce. :) After eating a deliciously homemade Indian meal, we took a nap and then went to the first orphanage. The girls had prepared dances for us and it was so neat! Pictures and video to come...

Please think of us and pray for us- we are soooo sleepy and I have been pretty motion sickness and dizzy throughout the day. Marcus is just pooped. We are so happy to be here and it is beautiful. The people are so kind and we've had a great start to the trip. :) Tomorrow is church, and hopefully some shopping in the afternoon. In the evening we have our first official session with the girls where a member of our team will be teaching and another member and I will be leading the girls in a craft. :)

Time for sleep! Love you all!
