Jaem Saves the Day

When the MacBook meltdown happened, there was a quick scramble to figure out how to get the back-up computer that we had left in Delhi up to Chandigarh so we could continue offloading footage from the cards. Paul and Sue East, whom have been hosting us here and have been a tremendous help with our inter-country travel, worked out someone to transport the new MacBook for us. Jaem is a former graduate of the Shanti Niketan home who made that 8-hour drive to us with only a couple hours notice. What a savior! God is providing for us in so many ways; praise Him!!

Since the media team first decided to set out on this adventure last autumn, we’ve continually been surprised as we watched plan after plan get crumpled and crushed. For most people on a tight schedule, the slightest turn of events might throw them into an uproar, but I think that the past month’s events have prepared us for certain minor calamities. For example at 5am Monday morning, we arrived at the airport only to find out that our flight to Kulu had been cancelled and nothing else would fly us there that day. There were no freak-outs, no red faces, not even raised voices — just a calm and cool collective decision to put a 180 on our five-day itinerary and head to Chandigarh instead, where we planned to visit the Shanti Niketan Children’s Home after Dar-Ul-Fazl.

We are all scheduled to fly together to Manali first thing in the morning for five days and I am so looking forward to a break from this 100+ degree weather.
