I subscribe to the blog of someone on a life-changing mission trip (though I hear they all are, I'll soon find out!!). This particular adventure takes them to eleven countries in eleven months. It's very interesting to read about and see pictures from the places these people go. It also helps me to appreciate the material things that the majority of us take for granted. I was just reading from a recent post in this blog and felt the need to share an excerpt. Enjoy.
"I can't believe that we are actually in India. This is exactly what I pictured when I thought of the World Race. We have been spoiled for the last 4 months, well as spoiled as missionaries in 3rd world countries can be. To be honest, India was the country I least wanted to go to. At training camp when I heard there were some changes in our route I was hoping India would be taken off our list. I was the one who prayed that our India visas would be declined. But God called us to India so here we are. And now being here I'm looking forward to it. I imagine that this country will have me totally relying on God, and that now excites me."
