  1. My husbands sister and brother in law went to India by boat in 1947 to help with some work being done in Kulpahar, UP. They trained the women in a variety of ways to improve their living situations and income. They helped in the establishment of an orphanage and school in that area as well. The school also became a training site for young women and men who were abandoned as infants or children. Great work with Joyn!

  2. Such a neat story Virginia. I can’t imagine the differences in their journey by boat in ’47 and mine in 2013. Thankful I could FaceTime my daughter back home!

  3. Love their “work” and their heart, and pray for a few of the folks there!!
    So glad He gives us purposes beyond our borders, and companies that will assist BAM projects to help keep them there!!
    Thanks for sharing! Miss your smile!

  4. I just love Einstein’s thought: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” I believe in miracles, also!!

    It is so true that everything one does matters. It doesn’t matter if you wash dishes, take out trash or run a company. It all has to be done. God needs willing hands to help do His work down here. Some of us may never get to go overseas, but we can do some tremendous work right where God planted us!

    Blessings 🙂

    • Yes Yes Yes Beth. It matters. It may not be “glorified” but it can be “glorious”. May you be blessed today in your “work”
