Sarah Geier, SCN, Kristy Reynolds, LeAnne Moore, Karen Lazowski, and Erin Kelly are flying to India now. They will be there until Nov. 3, in ministry at Asha Kiran. The volunteers will be engaged in a variety of activities, helping children get ready for school, help with homework, painting the library, creating an album of photos and activities, and sharing new skills. Primarily they will just be with the children, listen to them, and love them.
“Each of the volunteers is grateful for this opportunity and thank those who helped make it possible and especially those who are praying for us,” says Sister Sarah.
