Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain,
but for the heart to conquer it.

Denver

Well,
I've been here a week. It's been quite a change in many ways. There is more and less. More view, activity, and recreational options such as snowboarding. Less friends, hangin out at night, and doctors visits. I guess you can't have everything. Thats ok. I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve in any capacity at the Dalit Freedom Network. I'm very excited for what the organization is stepping into and how they are workin their butts off for the Dalit people!

Yesterday I was going through letters from the children to their sponsors and putting them together with the students report cards. I was very happy to get to work on Uddamarri's letters. It was great to get to see my boys letters but also to see the amount of work that goes into getting those letters out to every donor. I also saw many of the children I met and interacted with while in India as well as many that were sponsored by friends of mine!

On a very different note, I have found that all the activities available has been taking a toll on my legs. Nothing to worry about, but I have had to take it easy today because of how incredibly sore and worn down they have gotten. I wouldn't have it any other way. I have said it before but I'll say it again: I won't be the thing holding me back, I already have plenty of things doing that, my attitude will not hold me back.
