India 13: A Piece of My Heart Will Stay in Kota

What a week in Kota! We have had such a special time. Nothing has become more apparent to me than this: I need to somehow bring India home and share it with the Hopegivers' team (sponsors worldwide).

India 8: Tour of Agra

After the Taj Mahal, we toured Agra. It is a very contrasting city full of great poverty situated right next to outstanding opulence. It is a very dark city. Hopegivers has tried to start orphanages here to rescue the children, but have been run out of town each time. You could definitely feel the spiritual oppression just driving around…
