Updation (Jordan's word)

Hey everyone!
It's Meghan and Jordan! Well, it's been about a month in India and a lot has happened. We've experienced a whole new culture. Jordan and I both got some sweet new clothes. Mine being a Saree and Jordan's being angelic white clothing. We've gotten used to the spicy food, and sometimes (especially this past week) have had repercussions due to it (if you know what we mean. haha). Jordan has learned some of the Telugu alphabet. He's actually becoming quite fluent, as well as in French and Japanese. He just has a natural knack for picking up languages. He teaches himself. Haha. We teach English lessons everyday. Today we taught the 4th grade a story about Kip and Starla from Napoleon Dynamite. Hopefully they can use this new aquired information in their everyday life. We also found out that my power is connected to Jordan's power (well the curcuit). We kept wondering why Jordan's power would go out everytime I went into his room. Well, it turned out that my power switch controls them all. So if I'm in his room, he has no power. Haha. So those late night bible studies won't happen in his room at least (except thank you mom for that incredibly powerful flashlight. Jordan uses that to light up is room). The rainy season is coming to an end, and "winter" is approaching. It sure doesn't feel like winter. With the winter comes sickness, though. We haven't been able to go to the villages due to outbreaks of the swine flu and fevers and other sicknesses. So please pray for the people here. Speaking of sickness, I got a rash from sun exposure from taking my malaria pills. At least it's better than getting malaria :] The Lord has been guiding us through a lot of things. We are building endurance and much needed strength. Sometimes it gets hard with the language barrier, cultural differences, and all the kids running around screaming. But God has continued to provide us with patience and strength. We have just been praying a lot and asking God for guidance in everything we do here. We try to do everything with love and follow Him to the best of our abilities. Please continue to pray for us and the people here. All your prayers are greatly appriciated, and we love to read your comments. They bring smiles to our faces :]
Ok, well peace out,
Meghan and Jordan :]

PS-Stuart we are still waiting to hear from you :]


  1. Hey Guys, Great to hear from you and glad you are doing ok! That power story is a great one! You never know what you're gonna run into! Keep it up!

  2. Now see you made good use of all those times of watching Napoleon Dynamite--gosh! Way to go! Glad to hear that things are going well. Meghan...you got the power, girl! You guys are in my prayers...always:) (hope the peanut butter was good. esp. the one mixed with broken glass..yummy!)

  3. You two are awesome. The impact and the ministry are inspiring us here at home to take God's word out to others and spread it. I hope and pray that your faith may be shown through your endurance, patience, but more importantly your love for each other because that's how they will know Christ.

  4. Hello Meghan and Jordan~

    I have been thinking a lot about you guys so made the time to get into the blog and 'catch up' with you both. I pray that God's influence will be felt by the people through your words and actions. You are making a difference there even when you aren't feeling it. Just by making the journey to India, you are an example of what it is to follow God's gentle nudging (okay, sometimes he just kicks us out of the nest). :) You are not only helping the people of India, but have set an example for the kids back here. Keep on doing what you are doing one day at a time and may lots of blessings come your way.
