India: The Vision Nationals Campus

These pictures were taken in and around the campus of Vision Nationals.  The VN campus is home to the Master's Home for Children, Master's School for Children, and Master's College of Theology, as well as the meeting place for the week-long Pastor's Conference that takes place three times a year.  

Each day Keiran, our driver for the week, would pick us up for the 25 minute journey from our hotel.  We rode down crowded city streets that gave way to red dirt roads, muddied by the previous days' torrential rains.  Cramped city quarters became spacious grounds where chickens roamed freely and children ran barefoot.  The quick and somewhat chaotic pace of the city was forgotten, replaced with slowness and serenity.  We were welcomed as honored guests and humbled by the generous servitude we were shown.  Each day we drank our share of Chai {tea} made with fresh milk from VN's own water buffaloes and feasted on home-cooked curries, chutneys and rice.  

The work and ministry of Vision Nationals is profound.  The Lord is being honored and made much of on that campus.  Men, women and children are coming to know Christ and being sent out to  faithfully proclaim truth to a lost and dying culture.  Hundreds of churches are being planted, widows are being cared for, and generations of poverty are being broken by the work of VN. Like all non-profit organizations, donations and monthly support are needed to continue the work there.  More information on how to sponsor a child or pastor can be found on the Vision Nationals website here.

Next, I'll be posting pictures of the sweet children Andea and I got to spend time with while our husbands were teaching.
