Times almost up, but the spirit hasn’t stopped moving yet!

Times almost up, but the spirit hasn’t stopped moving yet!

Our clinics and ministry that we are doing have been going really well! We have had the opportunity to share the gospel with so many diverse people! It’s been amazing! A lot of people have been receptive to the gospel and through that 10 people have come to accept Christ this week! Praise the Lord for He is working through us! As we praise the Lord for what He has done and what he is doing, our ministry is slowly coming to a close as we only have only two eyeglass clinics left to complete our project! So I would like to ask you guys to keep us in prayer this week and pray that the Lord would start a major revival and soften more peoples heart to the gospel! We truly know the Lord is moving!

Now after almost every clinic we eat a meal that the church or church members prepare for us. The typical meal is rice and curry and usually a sauce. Most of the kids used to eat just rice, and by most I mean Olivia, but since being in India for almost one month now all of us are enjoying the wide variety of food that they prepare for us!

To walk you A little through our day after we eat our food at the clinic we usually always get on the bus to go home. Let’s just say that the roads of India have no rules or boundaries. Cambree loves that there are no road laws and always find it funny when they make a random U-turn in the middle of a main road. But by the grace of God we always make it home safe and sound!

Ok now to switch this report up a little bit we need to talk about all the exciting things we did the other day! The 20th which so happen to be Callie‘s birthday, she said that she enjoyed her birthday so much! Our first adventure was that we got to go to a school in the morning where we got to do a presentation and put our puppet skills to the test. The whole team had so much fun during and after the presentation where they got to hang out with a lot of kids from the school for a little bit. Then after a short clinic at the church where we had been staying at we had an amazing opportunity to go to the beach and see the Bay of Bangel! It was a lot of fun to see the waves and for some of the team get a little taste of home. (East, and west coast people) then after our trip to the beach we took a quick stop at the Michiliputnam lighthouse. Everyone had the chance to climb eight stories to the top of the lighthouse, it was absolutely beautiful. You could see so much from the top, all the team members were just in awe of the beauty that the top held. What an amazing day it was indeed. To wrap this day up as if it couldn’t get any better the team wasn’t just filled with joy at the end of the day…but also KFC. But I’ll let them tell you more about that when they get home.

WOW! So many things happen this week but those are only a few of many things! To close this report I just want to say a few more things. Praise our great physician who by his mighty works healed everyone on our team. We went through a little food poisoning/stomach bug phase on the team, but no need to fret because everyone is back to 100%! Also please pray for traveling mercies as we prepare to leave for Delhi and praise the Lord that we arrived safely in Vijayawada! One last request as our trip comes to an end be Praying for our hearts to grow closer to the Lord in these last few days!

Now from the team:

India. Wow! I don’t know what to say. This country takes my breath away. With every bite of curry and the way they drive. Let me tell you, there’s no place like this anywhere in America! -Makayla

We have seen the Lord do so much the past month, on top of spiritual growth and giving out glasses, we have seen 10 people accept Christ at our clinic. 7 of them yesterday. - Kaleb

Hi family! So the past few days have been very eventful! Yesterday I got the chance to give my pink telagu Bible to 5 men who accepted Jesus. It was super exciting. We only have 2 more eyeglass clinics then we are off to Delhi. This trip’s flown by!

All of your wonderful teens have arrived at The Lord's Boot Camp...

All of your wonderful teens have arrived at The Lord's Boot Camp as of yesterday!! They are truly thriving and surviving with smiles on their faces (well maybe not at 5:30).

Talk about Mud, Sweat, and Cheers!

Talk about Mud, Sweat, and Cheers! This team has experienced all three, though we haven't experienced too much mud because it really has not rained too much lately here at Boot Camp.. BUT that's not what you want to hear about, it's your Teens!!


This week especially has been a really good week for the India team! We just started drama classes that all the kids really seem to enjoy! Yesterday was Sunday, a day of rest for the teens for the first time in the week that we have been here! They got to take a break from running the obstacle course, and we as leaders incorporated a nap time for the ones who wanted to catch up on some sleep.

There's only 2 more sleeps till Commissioning!!!

The team is so excited to go to India! After twelve hard days of training Boot Camp is finally coming to a close. Today was the last day that the team got (had)to run the obstacle course they got 16 people over the wall. It was truly a great experience to see the team work and growth. Though it's been Hot and sweaty and muggy almost all of the kids can agree that it is all worth it! We have all had our Highs and Lows in this time of training. Here are some of the Highs!

The eyeglass team arrived yesterday at 8:30 am in the Vijayawada Airport safely.

So they reached their final destination and Were safe ...

Namiskarum from King’s Ranch in India!

The whole team (minus 16 duffels) made it safely to India despite many obstacles. One girl on our team tested positive for Covid three times while safely quarantined before finally testing negative twice just hours before the bus left Teen Missions. Our travel also included a flight delay in Orlando that left us running for our flight in Frankfort and resulted in the loss of over half our luggage in Delhi. We are hopeful that our luggage will catch up to us any day now and the kids are anxiously waiting for their belongings. Despite these challenges the kids have had great attitudes. Ryan had the opportunity to pray for several people in the airport and Cambree has had a smile on her face every minute whether praying over the property or braiding all the girls’ hair.

Hello friends and family of India Eyeglass!

This week was a highlight for all our kids as they got to experience their first Indian church service on Sunday and do a little sightseeing at a small park afterwords. We even had a picnic with their first peanut butter sandwiches in a long time and it was a big hit! Everyone was very excited to see the monkeys who in turn were very excited at the thought of food. We didn’t lose a single person to the monkeys, only an apple core or two.

Hello everyone!

The kids had a wonderful Independence Day and enjoyed a meal of Kraft Mac and Cheese from the US and ice cream from here in India. One team member said it was the best 4th of July she had ever had.

What a spirit filled crazy week we have had!

The India Eyeglass team has been blessed beyond words with opportunities to pray with people the past couple weeks. The leaders have been so pleased to see all our kids praying with Hindu and Christian patients alike. We are so proud to see how their boldness in Christ has grown and flourished these past couple of weeks.

Prayer, clinics, and curry oh my!

The India Eyeglass team has had such a busy week, after moving to pastor Ramesh’s beautiful home on the east side of Ongole. We have had a blast with all the amazing opportunities that we have been given. From the ministry, to the food, and the the many amazing things we have seen, the past couple days have been such a blessing!

Blessed are the flexible.

I am so surprised that it doesn’t say that in the Bible! This team has grown and lots of aspects of patience and perseverance! These past couple days have been ever-changing. We have had a beautiful ending to our time at pastor Ramesh‘s house; we all gathered in the pastor's living room and we got to hear all about the Sharon Ministries that they are coordinating. Then afterwards they give us very generous gifts of the traditional dress wear! The girls got nice Indian dresses and the guys got traditional skirts. Our last moments there were so sweet and full of encouragement and positivity. As the time went on we finally departed from the Sharon ministries, to arrive at Kings Ranch once again. We unpacked everything and got settled in for the next five days. Or so we thought. (This is where the Flexibility comes in) the next day we got the word that the team was supposed to be in Machillipatnam that day!
