GNI kids have had a full Summer. Indian classical dance camp…. Choir camp…. Staff Conference with almost 180 staff and college students… 5 graduation ceremonies with almost 175 graduates from High School, Jr College and College (Bengal, Balasore, Ganjam, Koraput and Jharsuguda) with all the hoopla we could muster to give these kids memories they will never forget and to inspire the younger kids to run the distance in their educational pursuits… These kids never had a chance to finish School, but now they are dreaming big… I love it. What a joy to witness the first group of graduates EVER from among the Lodha tribe of people. A group of tribal people that are known for murdering, terrorizing, stealing and looting,.. but the Gospel has brought about community transformation into their world. That generational curse is broken. Praise God.
