“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9 NKJV
The village would remind most of us of a maze, but one with mud walls as high as a man’s head. Only these walls are part of people’s homes.
During the heavy seasonal rains, the houses would erode to expose straw and sticks used to reinforce the mud. The walkways become shin-deep sludge, and in the doorways, children poke out their heads to watch the rain.
In India, many schools charge for primary education, so these children can’t go and will instead follow their parents out into the fields each day.
