Teen visits India, her homeland, on mission awareness trip

We received this lovely email from Maria, whose mother sponsors Sujatha in India through CFCA. Maria went on a January mission awareness trip to India, the land of her birth.

Hi, my name is Maria. I was born in India.

Maria, second from left, has her hair done by Sujatha, who is sponsored through CFCA. The other two girls pictured, background and right, are Sujatha’s sisters.

When I was 10, I was adopted and now I live in the USA. My family sponsors a girl my age, 16, in southern India.

This past January my mom and I joined 22 people on a CFCA mission awareness trip to southern India.

It was nice to be back home in India! I really enjoyed talking to and dancing with the kids that I met there. I loved the spicy food and sunshine!

We traveled by train to a small village to meet our sponsored child and her family.

I felt happy and welcomed by all the people we met on our trip. The CFCA people are very helpful and guide you every step of the way.

My favorite part about being back in India was that even though people were poor, they still had a smile on their faces and they were very sweet.

I hope some of you will go on a mission trip also. I hope some of you will also sponsor someone!
