The Groundbreaking

A groundbreaking was planned and then we got an assignment out of town. We were gone two days and arrived back from a long drive to be exactly on time. Local leaders were in place and we started with about 120, but before too long 200 were in attendance.
A gold handled shovel lay ready. This is not just the first building it is the first groundbreaking ever heard of here.
Many took an opportunity to turn the soil for our new three story building.
The groundbreaking ceremony ended with spirit filled singing and prayer.

Exciting! My parents have left, and I have dutifully posted pictures of their adventures while here. I think we are planning a trip to Chennai in November, you won't be transfered or anything before then will you?
