The Miracle Garden campus from the main road. Tall ashoka trees, neem trees and batham (almond) trees peek above the compound wall. Year-round at MG various fruits and nuts are plentiful on the trees, such as almonds, mangos, papayas, lemons, pomegranates, and nellikai. Although we also have more than 10 coconut palms on campus, they will not bear fruit for another 3 years.

A coloring contest - what else could spark such artful competition. Boys Little Prakash, Balakrishnan, Little M. Sathish, Velusamy, and others with their pages from various Christmas coloring books. While sometimes we bring the children's artwork back stateside to share with their sponsors, these beautifully colored pictures were hung around the chapel and classrooms as Christmas decorations for the party. The kids enjoyed lollipops and tootsie rolls while coloring as well. :-)

Little Sangeetha (center) enjoys ripe, sweet cherries along with Ellakiya (right), Mahalakshmi, Esther, Nandini, and other girls (left). The cherries are from the trees behind her. The children climb the trees everyday to pick the ripe ones and share with everyone.
