In exactly one month from today, myself and 16 other people affiliated with George Fox will be on our way to INDIA.

India? Really? Seriously? Yup, that's what they tell me.

While I'm incredibly excited and wish I could go tomorrow, I'm all the while already "crapping my pants" from nervousness. Will I be safe? Will I know what to do? Will I know what to say? Will my life be changed?

All of those questions are currently up in the air, but hopefully come July 2nd, I'll understand why I was chosen for this mission trip.

Oh and don't get me wrong, I'm more than blessed and thankful to be flying into 115 degree weather and poverty beyond belief, I'm just scared.

God, please take my burdens about India away so I can focus on the real reason I'm going there.


  1. holy crap.
    couldn't have said it better myself.
    i thought about it all weekend.

    know what else i thought about?
    the book...

    you take my breathe away.
    llloooovvvveee you!

  2. =)

    oh gosh- I remember getting ready for Cuba and Jamaica- I was freaking out. I still remember the heat, and shaving in cold showers, and stale bread for breakfast, and intermittent power outages = no fans = feeling even hotter! and there were big bugs, and painful sun burns, and no places to cry.

    but the people.
    oh the people.

    man can they love. what I miss the most is the lack of bubble- they would run up to you and hug you and kiss you- and it didn't matter that everyone needed a shower, or that they were poor and dirty- because there was so much love.

    cherish every hug.
    cherish every dirty kiss.
    and look for the Saviour in their eyes- you'll find Him. I promise.
