June 22, 2018 | First Cup of Chai

As we walked out of the airport in Mumbai, I was immediately hit by the heat and humidity even at 9pm. The traffic also got my attention as cars, trucks, and motorcycles weaved back and forth two inches apart in a seemingly chaotic dance. After a good night’s sleep, Andrew and I went for an early morning walk on the edge of the slum neighborhood next to our hotel and stopped at a little stall for a tasty cup of hot Chai tea. We then met up with Grace for breakfast. That afternoon we drove to one of our global partners where we are staying for a few days. It has been a tremendous blessing to spend time getting to know them, hear their heart for India, learn about the everyday challenges they face, and encourage them.
