Children Fed: Over 350
Observations: Today the cooking area for our Just One feeding of the children of Jai Prakash Nagar was a tiny L-shaped offshoot from a narrow street in one of the more impoverished areas of Varanasi, India. This tiny piece of land was also the site for the feeding so it was a very compact and cozy event. Gathering in this small space on a beautiful sunny December afternoon blessed with unseasonably warm weather, an atmosphere of togetherness and brotherhood emerged that matched the spirit of the holiday season in the West.
The children were in high spirits and laughed and played with me. Usually, I am the tall Western man that they stay away from, but today I was the photographer and the bringer of smiles. I am blessed to have such a heart expanding service for the children of Varanasi. Merry Christmas to you and you families!
