Sometimes it feels like just yesterday we took this picture, and other times it feels like a lifetime ago. But, this time next week, all of our hard work in planning and fundraising will be paying off when we will finally be in India working away at FFC. We are very busy putting together final preparations for our trip, making sure that everything is in order for when we arrive.
We recently had a meeting with a Speech/Language Pathologist who travels to India frequently and warned us that we will probably fall in love with the country and the people. She told us all about her trips to India, what we could expect, things we should do and see etc. and now we are all very excited to get to India and start our work there.
The past 7 months have been a whirlwind of planning and fundraising and we can hardly believe it is finally come time for us to get on a plane and go to India. There were times when we wondered if this day would ever come and now it is upon us. We fly out on Thursday night and will be in India early Saturday morning.
We really want to thank everyone who has been there for us and supported us over the past 7 months during the planning stages of our trip. We couldn’t have done it without you – both our financial supporters and those who have supported us in other ways with time, wisdom and travel tips. Thank you so very much – you all mean the world to us.
We want to remind you that donations can still be made either online or by cash or cheque in the mail. Please follow the directions in the right hand side bar to make a donation. Any donations over $40 will still be eligible for a tax receipt and any size donation will be very helpful in making the final amount of our fundraising goal. Donations can be made now and even after we leave for India.
Also, one final thing. Please bookmark this blog site. We have had some technical difficulties with the site but we seem to have them worked out and we will be updating the blog from India. We will be keeping you posted on what we are up to and how we are making out on our travels and how each of our volunteer opportunities are going. We will be sharing pictures and stories with you, our supporters, we really want to make an effort to keep you all in the loop so you can see how your donations are being put to work.
Thank you so much for all of your support and prayers both now and as we continue on this journey.
Jeremy, Marissa, Kayla and Pranavi.
