During Vacation Bible School at First UMC Redondo Beach the children learned about our students in rural India and then collected donations to help us provide books for Panchsheel School. Last week, we received a check for $1,023.15 and this wonderful letter:

"What a joy to learn about our friends in India every day at VBS! Our kids gave generously and with so much love! Please feel free to use this for anything the schools, students or friends of Padhar needs!"

Many thanks to Risa Vargas, Molly Vetter and the wonderful team at First UMC Redondo Beach. Because of your generosity, we are able to give books and school supplies to the 600 children at Panchsheel Ashram School.
