Pizza and Waffles in Bangalore

An email from Brad:

Team India is in India. We arrived safe and sound with all our bags and our spirtis high early Thursday morning. We met Prem and were quickly given a crash course in Bangalore traffic, which was quite the experience. Thursday was our jet lag catch up / get settled day which was much needed. On Friday we were able to go to Asha Kiran for a tour and meet the children. They were all very welcoming right off the start, it was avery warm welcome and we are all very excited to get to take part in the amazing things God is doing there. On Friday we also met a guy named Nick from England who is also working at the school. He will be joining us on our adventures and so far as made a very good, alebit foreign, addition to our team. Other than that we have just been trying to adjust to the culture and time difference. So far the food has been very mild (we've had pizza and waffles even) and for the most part we've been able to stomach it all. Prem is giving us a tour of Bangalore later this afternoon which should be very cool. Our team prayer requests would be that we could just be fully utilized at Asha Kiran and we could make the most of our time here as we search for our place in God's great plan. We are very excited for the upcoming weeks and look forward to becoming more aware of God's kingdom and workings so far from our home. We thank you for all your support.

So much for safe foods... We ate out last night at a mall and we had our first taste of "real" Indian food (it was at a mall so probably not 100% accurate). We all ate at different places and my meal sat just fine, until early this morning :-( I think I am through it but Pepto Bismol chewable tablets are #1 in my book right now, though you should be able to take more than 8 in a 24 hour period...

unfortunate. I'll be praying for your digestive systems.
