Young Monks. Northern India



Well, if you’re not attached to my facebook page or Paula Watts Photography blog, you may not have had the chance to see these images yet. If you are connected in those areas, I know you’ve seen these images at least once but I hope you can enjoy them again.
You might also check out the previous post as I have become aware that the “subscriber” notifications did not get sent for the last post. I apologize for any confusion. We’re still here, thriving and enjoying not only our beautiful surroundings of the Himalayan Mountains, but also the new friendships that are being built and the lives we have the extreme privilege of loving and serving. Just this morning, as Nick and I were talking over breakfast, we were realizing how privileged we actually feel to get to live life amongst the Tibetan people, who we are growing to love more and more each day. There is something so profound about the connection you feel with an entire people group after praying for them, loving on them, and serving them. They are quickly becoming friends, and people we cherish. We celebrate with them, we take on their struggles, we listen, and most importantly, we just try to be here and be present for them. See them and love them. For who they are. Who they were created to be, and encourage them however we can. Jesus did that when He lived here on earth, and He is our example. The ultimate example of servanthood, love, and sacrifice, but also speaking life and truth into the very lives of those he encountered. This is our prayer.

    Jesus calls us all to be a light in the world. Your light is very evident in India as you are loving on the Tibetan people! Love the way you brought out the colorful way of the Tibetan people in the use of their bright colors.
