Glimpses from our week in India!

Quick links to the other parts this week:


Last week, we shared about a cancer diagnosis for one of our favorite grandmas, Sharadhamma. We were praying for wisdom and provision for the treatment the doctors suggested. The next day, her condition worsened dramatically, and it was clear her time is short. And so we moved to figuring out how to make her comfortable. The hospital has loaned us a bed for her! We got it delivered and then moved her into a clean room. The hospital gave us morphine to keep her pain levels more manageable, although it doesn’t get rid of all of her pain. And now we pray for peace for her and her family as she lives her last days here. We pray for a peaceful transition to her forever Home with Jesus. A friend prayed that all in the family will be able to say all they need to say before she goes home, and we join in this prayer.

In a rough week, I’m excited to share with you the pics that delight my heart. Here is another favorite grandma holding Shilpa’s baby, and both of them are full of delight. In life, it’s often right there together—grief and sorrow and delight and joy.

It’s tough not to smile when she smiles. Hers is a smile that has known more hardship than most of us ever will. But she shines with love and joy.
