Our Return to Udayan

12 February 2017

Following an early start (4:30 AM!), we made our way to The Mother House to have mass with Mother Teresa’s sisters (The Missionaries of Charity). Once back at the hotel we relaxed, packed and had breakfast. All gifts – including teddies, pens and nail polish – were taken to Udayan today to be distributed before we leave.

Sunday is a great day to be at Udayan as all the children are off school so there was plenty of recreational activities going on. We interrupted their recreational time to take a school photo for every child in the school. This took almost two hours but will be worth it when we print them for the kids and a copy for their parents. We also took some family pics of those families who were visiting their children at Udayan. Some had travelled 6 hours, leaving at 5am to stay a few hours before making the long journey home.

After a delicious lunch, we spent time with the children dancing and watching television. Tomorrow we will be having a celebration evening including both us and the children of Udayan performing a show comprised of song, dance and rap. We have just finished our first rehearsals for this and I can confirm they went very well.

Very early start you must all be very tired but sounds like a very rewarding day. The show will be great fun for all, I am sure. Enjoy your last few days with these beautiful people. Love Jan

Enjoy your second visit to udayan. Make more special memories. I’m sure you’ll be very sad when you have to say goodbye to everyone. Love to you all.
