|Like I told you, there are more stories to come of our time in India. This is one such story.Unlike the boys who have free time to leave campus each Saturday and Sunday, the girls do not get to leave campus unescorted. So I try to have a special event day for the girls while I am in India. They do NOT have bathing suits, so there is an enormous amount of preparation required to get them prepared for the Water Park.
You will love the girls’ observations of this special day.
The girls enjoyed every moment of the trip. They played so much that they were dead tired. Each girl has given me a written comment. Most of them mentioning, “This is the first time I have ever been to a picnic in my life.” Here are some of the responses:
* I have always been scared of the water, but this was a place where I could be safe and enjoy being in the water.
* I consider it to be my privilege to be in RGI and to be able to go to the water park.
* I enjoyed being with all my friends and teachers. Specially enjoyed Nani’s (SHE) presence with us at the park.
*I will never forget this day in my life. This is the first time that I have lived away from my family. I was so touched to see all our teachers taking good care of us during the picnic. I thank God for bringing me to RGI.
*I have never danced in my life before. But in the water park I danced so much that my legs started aching.
*I enjoyed the dashing cars and the rides so much I had never seen anything like this before.
*I grew up in a hostel and sometimes was taken for a picnic but I have never been to such a wonderful place like this.
* First time in my life I know how wonderful it is to enjoy life with your friends.
*I enjoyed the dance, the water slides, the swings and the lovely food that we took with us.
*I thank God for fulfilling my wish to go for a picnic.
*This is a dream come true for me. I will always remember this day all my life.
*I never knew that there could be water coming on the slide and you could slide into the water pond, it was such a fun for me.
*I will never forget my friends at RGI and how much I enjoyed the picnic with them.
*I live in Nagpur and still hadn’t heard anything about the water park it is an amazing place that we could see because of Nani.
*I am happy that we were told not to wear the hired costumes and that we were guided as to what we should wear at the park because it made me feel comfortable as I was enjoying in the water.
*This was the happiest day in my life.
*I am happy that I can learn so many things in RGI but at the same time I can do fun things and enjoy my time here.
*I want to thank Nani and Papi for making our day so special I will never cease to pray for them.
*I was so surprised to see that the girls from the tribal areas know how to swim so well they even tried to teach me. I am happy to be a student at RGI.
*The first time I slid down on the biggest slide I was so nervous, but once I did it I enjoyed it so much that I did it many times after that.
|THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE FOR ALL THE GIRLS. THIS IS ONE OF THE DAYS THAT NO GIRL WILL FORGET IN HER LIFE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR US AND FOR YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE LORD.
Thank you again for your prayers and support
