Spent the morning visiting an orphanage in Delhi, India. Delivered a truckload of much needed medicine, and received some huge smiles in return.
These children are awesome, but very much in need of loving families of their own. This orphanage is well managed, with children ranging from newborns to age 3, and from very likely to be adopted to virtually no chance. Heart breaking. Will continue to pray for these children.
Just back from India this afternoon. Very successful trip, but exhausting. To keep our time away from home as short as possible, we work very long days, and then nights are more work, social, or travel. Did I mention exhausting? We reviewed probably 2000 items, primarily from three countries, by eight different Designers, from over 50 factories including our own factory, with staff from China, the US, Indonesia, and India. A whirlwind. Great trip and great to be home. By the way, the Lord answers prayers. The sciatic pain going down my leg due to my ruptured disc got better every day of the trip. I’ve had intense pain since August 10th, and amazingly it started decreasing right before we left. Thank you Lord!
Cows are sacred in India, and roam the streets eating whatever they want. This is a dirt road outside of Delhi. Probably not smart, but I made a friend.
An amazing blend of cultures, but all part of Uttermost. Pictured is Tan Yen, a Christian who runs our Indonesian office. With her is Asri, a Muslim from our Indo staff. They are enjoying American pizza and coke in our China office.
