“Happy, Happy Welcome to You”
The children at Agape Home singing “Happy, Happy Welcome to You” in English as the 2011 team arrived. It was a great welcome to India!
The Days of Creation Lesson
They taught the children about the days of creation. By the end of it the children knew them so well that they could respond to what was created on what day without it having to be interpreted into Tamil. They were very quick learners.
Worship during the Practorium Classes
There were more than 3 languages represented at the practorium classes. So each session they would have at least one song in Tamil, Odia and English. This is the believers from Tamil Tadu singing in Tamil. So if you were wondering, that is why not everyone is singing, because they couldn’t all speak Tamil.
Worship and Morning Devotions at Agape Home
Every morning the house mother Grace would bang the big drum and all the children would come into the main meeting room for Worship and Devotions.

They gave each of the children at Agape Home a little flashlight and then went out in the dark and sang while they waved their flashlights. The children knew this song in English.
