Ever since starting Olivia's adoption I have wanted to go on a mission trip. I've always had this pull, that it was something I needed to do. Of course the adoption consumed my life and then once Olivia came home, life just sort of took over.
But every once and awhile I would get that pull again to go. But I never did it. To be honest I was scared. Scared to leave Vinay and Liv. Scared to do something on my own. Scared of how hard the work would be, that I wouldn't be able to hack it. Scared that I would get sick there. Scared of the hotel accommodations, I have actually changed rooms in hotels for many reasons, Last time it was because the room was too close to the elevator. Scared to leave my comfort zone. It's easier to just write a check, than to get personally involved. But I have to do more for these poor Guatemalan children than just pray.
This weekend I broke to news to Vinay, I am going on a mission trip this August. It is time to face my fears and do something.
I will be going with my aunt and with this ministry.
In a few months I will put out a supply list. Please be as generous as you can.
Here is the youtube video, that made me seriously consider going. It for a different ministry, but it really makes you think
