Brenda Presents to Christ The King School

On January 28th I was given the amazing opportunity to be able to present a slideshow explaining The Howley Foundation to Christ The King School in Burlington, Vermont. I showed slides of Calcutta from my visit in 2010 as well as slides from my visit to Maher in Pune, India in 2012. I explained that I was working with Maher which means "Mother's House" to build two homes for orphans in Jharkhand, India.

The children were eager to ask great questions and seemed very interested.

Today's The Day!!

Well, the day has come, my long awaiting journey, adventure and dream of a lifetime is finally here!

I leave for India in a FEW SHORT HOURS.

I am excited beyond belief, ecstatic to the highest and a bit scared but I woke up
singing Glory To God In The Highest And Peace To The People On The Earth.
I love that.

I could hardly sleep from all the anticipation and excitement of my travels.
I ended up packing a second bag, mostly full of school supplies for the kids.

I feel so much joy and gratitude that I'm almost overwhelmed.

25 Days and Counting!

WHOOHOO! 25 Days and counting. It's hard to believe that in 25 days I will be on my way to India.
A dream of a lifetime come to reality. It feels EXCITING!!!

Everyone will be able to share in my travel experience as I will attempt to blog everyday.
I will also attempt to download various pictures of my travels. You will be able to share my experiences as I have them.
What a great way to share my trip with all my friends and family and still stay in touch.
