We are in retreat.
Not retreating - but spending time together and with the Lord - to be refreshed and renewed.
Last night we had our first Jeevan Sahara Kendra staff awards night. It was a time of much laughter and joy (I got the coveted "stuck to the computer with fevicol" award). Nathan and Marise hosted us all at their home (we had 27 awards for staff and interns - so you can see that we are really growing!).

Today we are at the JSK centre for the day with bro. Joe Ahire who is ministering to us on the theme of 'Behold I make all things new.' Then this evening we all clamber into a bus and drive off to the Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission where we will continue our retreat tomorrow and on into Sunday.
We finish off by driving over to Daund (30 mins away we are told) where our long-serving staff member Daniel Kautikkar is getting married to Yerusha. We are looking forward to the new couple joining us at JSK next month. Yerusha is a nurse - and we have been praying for nurses for years!
Looks like we will have at least 28 awards to give next year!
