The elaborate airbrushing and embroidery work seen here has been done by one of our tailoring students. Being a seamstress or tailor in India means not only knowing how to alter or stitch clothes, but also having expreience with clothing design and artistry. Our tailoring students could give any NY city runway designer a run for their money!

Gayathri, the girls' leader, overseas a study session in back of the main building. Currently the children must study on the floor. Praise God that the Platt family from NY has been inspired to spread the word and raise money to purchase over 60 study desks (at $45 each) for the children! Various individual sponsors have also contributed to this pool (note Yamuna's bold smile!) for their sponsored child. Thank you to all of you who have seen this as a priority to help advance the academic performance of the kids at Miracle Garden.

YES, all 26 of the boys in the previous picture fit into the new van, which holds 30 kids in seats (and a few more when packed "Indian-style" on laps, etc.). Teams that visit Miracle Garden will also benefit by being able to travel in this brand-new van, which is comfortable and spacious enough for luggage.

Yeah! Our NEW mini-bus is finally here at Miracle Garden. The boys (and Bull the long-haired chihuahua) had to check it out and give it a test-drive. Now the kids have reliable transportation (that doesn't need to be push-started) for school, ministry, and special events. THANK YOU Christian World Relief and the many others who helped make this gift possible! Now our children are mobile!
