Atlanta Day 2

Our team went to BAPS, Atlanta’s biggest Hindu temple. It was a unique experience for all of us as we learned about their beliefs and rituals. After we left the temple, our students shared stories of their experiences there. One thing that stood out to one of our team members was how the Hindu religion is centered around deeds and practices.

After the temple visit, our team traveled over to Atlanta’s Global Mall and refueled at an authentic Indian restaurant, which gave us a bigger TASTE of their culture.

The kids arrived with a crazy amount of energy and excitement to be there. It is so cool to see the relationships being formed with the members of the team with these kids, and we are super pumped to see what the rest of this week brings.
