We are almost ready to go to India. (For those of you who haven't heard, our trip was delayed by two weeks, so we're still in Kansas at the moment.) We tried to pack lightly. . . (Ba-ha!) so feel free to see in the attached photo what the Burkes mean when they way, "Oh, we're only taking the essentials!"
Actually, we are taking quite a few things because we aren't sure what is available in India. If you'd like to know exactly what a family of five needs to take to Chennai, India for a two-month stay, please ask us in about a month.
Many wonderful people have asked us to keep in touch with them via email while we're in India, and we thought the best way to do that was to start a blog. This is our first blog entry. We are hoping that you will check our blog periodically to get your Burke updates and news.
Must go continue the packing process. Please keep us in your prayers.
