This Is India (Jace Anderson)

Don’t worry America, I am pine. So are all the girls that we teach and they let you know it! Every once in a while you’ll get a sassy one that will say that they are “not pine.” It’s so fun to meet all the girls and see their different personalities. I have never felt so connected to a group of people before in my life. I have never felt so accepted and appreciated as I do serving these children. These kids love us with all their hearts and I have never felt such love. I truly do love them with every ounce of my heart. Even when the kids are being a little naughty, you can’t help but adore them. They are just too cute! I really think that we are making a difference. Not only with the lessons but simply impacting the kids. Many of them come from awful home and family situations and we have probably given some more love than they have ever received. It is so rewarding to see the lessons click in them and see their smiles and the twinkle in their eyes. That alone has made this journey worth it.

This is happiness. This is joy. This is service. This is love. This is YMAD. This is India.
