Post Script To The Sarees
This picture was originally taken to show how blessed you could be in India to have a place to hang out your sarees. It had been raining that day and we were up in a building checking out a new apartment for the young missionaries. From their balcony these beautiful sarees caught my eye but as I held the camera up I saw lots of movement in the river bed. Across and off to the right is a small neighborhood of thatched homes. Under the bridge and in the middle you can just make out a cluster of women seeking shelter, but up closer are a few brave souls doing their wash in an almost river. This was a couple of weeks before more rain arrived in the form of the cyclone.
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
