India 2013 (Bengali Primer Construction)

Greetings from India.  Tomorrow we start the 2 week Bengali Primer Construction here in Satali, West Bengal. We are working with our dear friends and colleagues Gyan & Chrystella. After that, we will be continuing to study Hindi intensively.  Please pray for wisdom, courage, strength, stamina, good health, and inspiration as the local team (4 story writers) begin creating the lessons tomorrow.

The kids are adjusting well, though the first several days were rough as we all had our days and our nights mixed up.  Ian likes all the animals that roam about in the village where we're staying.  Nora gets many village visitors who marvel at her whiteness..."whiter than milk!" one said.  Yesterday, she took her first baby steps at 9 1/2 months!  Below are a few photos we've snapped so far:
