For five months the group has been collecting donations to take with us to India. Now eight bulging  duffel bags sit waiting to join us on our flight to Kolkata in two days. Last weekend Meghan and her wonderful sister packed and re-packed the bags, distributing the weight evenly and double wrapping the liquids (medicines, lotions and even bubbles for the children).

Our extended community has been so generous, offering gauze, bandages, latex gloves and syringes for Mother Teresa's homes; chalk, notebooks, paints and pencils for the children's school at New Hope, New Life; clothing and little shoes for toddlers; and a treasure trove of toothbrushes and toothpaste for the men, women and children we will come to know.

Eight duffel bags and 13 travelers are ready to fly.
