He is Faithful and We are Spoiled!

Thursday...

Here I am in a small village in the Sunderban Islands south of Calcutta. It is surprising that there is even a hotel here. Nevertheless, Greg’s and my expectations were different than the reality! Our Indian co-worker Patra had proudly assured us that it was a very good hotel and newly built. However, we discovered the outside looked quite dilapidated and the lobby was dark with 3 young men sprawled on the floor sleeping with a small TV blaring. As we climbed the stairs the first floor rooms looked like nowhere I wanted to stay! By the time we reached the 2nd floor, there seemed to be some hope. We opened the room and discovered a single bed 4 foot wide for us both to sleep on. We discussed our options and found out another room across the hall was available as well. At $15 a room per night we took them both! They just dropped off a top sheet for my bed. It is quite damp with holes and stains a plenty. Best of all, however, there is an air conditioning unit. Now if only the electricity keeps going! This will be home for three days. God’s provision reminds us that He is faithful and we are spoiled!     Roger
