My Indian Daugher

You have already met Jill in a previous post. This past week I was in India with a team from Granger Community Church and we had the chance to catch up with Jill. Jill is working in Chennai India for International Justice Mission as their Deputy Director at which she is doing one phenomenal job. But, more importantly, she is our adopted daughter (though not legally) and we are her Indiana parents.

When we caught up with each other Jill began to cry uncontrollably which in turn cased me to start crying and we just held onto each other for several minutes. Jill has been in Chennai since the first of the year on the front lines of injustice and 9,000 miles away from the people who love her the most. She is a very strong women that loves Jesus but many times that does not make it any less lonely.

If you know Jill. Pray for her. Send her an email. Chat with her on Facebook. Or if you are up for an adventure travel 9,000 miles away and take her out for a cup of coffee.
