|In late October 2008, I left Arizona for south India to find St. Mary’s near Kumbakonam. My wife Rita and I support nine handicapped and deaf students aged six to 17 years. I saw them at daily Mass and had one private session with them.
My stay was in guest room 211 of the St. Xavier College of Education building. Close by was the office where the mail and email is sent out and received. Even closer was Father’s room. Classrooms fill the building with students coming and going and buzzers going off to signal the start of class.
I flew from Phoenix to London to Chennai. From Chennai I flew Kingfisher Airlines to Trichy (TRC) where Father and driver picked me up for the 2.5-hour drive to home.
I enjoyed it. We’ll increase the number of children we support and, God willing, I’ll be back next November. Come join us. Engage your faith and turn up the flame in your heart. Help a child in need.
