Welcome to India

This blog is intended to make a country that most Westerners find to be otherworldly not so much so. We enjoy sharing our experiences, noting our observations, highlighting our impressions and otherwise recounting our adventures in India while helping our blogwatchers to be vicariously closer to this grand country. Welcome to India.

Hosanna




CCH staff visiting Hosanna


Many prayers for Hosanna


During a trip to Hyderabad recently, a wild game of Connect Four where 
Hosanna displayed his dominance!

We continue seeking prayers and heartfelt thoughts for Hosanna, one of our boys from our Medarametla children’s home, who has been overcoming Leukemia far longer than any of the doctors in India predicted.

Hosanna is 10 years old and the leukemia was discovered in April of 2012.  After months and months of treatment and evaluations, Hosanna’s blood levels continue to slowly decline, even as the worldwide prayers become ever more united.

Regular updates on Hosanna can be found on our website and blog:


Please join the chorus of prayer on behalf of Hosanna:

  1. Complete healing, to the shock and disbelief of doctors.
  2. Peace and hope for his mother, who has already lost a husband in the past 10 years.
  3. Unity around Hosanna of all 400 CCH children.
