10 weeks and counting!
So I looked at the calendar and realized we leave for India in 10 weeks!! While this may seem like a long time it feels all too soon. I can't wait to get to Maduari but hope I can get everything that needs to be done before on time. Now that midterms are over my other assignments, term papers, etc feel like a big Spring raincloud. However, the reward at the end of this semester is well worth the effort!
I've been so encouraged by the support from our family and Vineyard! I don't know how all this would happen without them and the flexibility and understanding of the Samuels in Madurai. They're an amazing family that welcomes my questions and concerns in regards to missions and life. I'm so blessed to call them my extended family :)
On another note the missions team is showing Slumdog Millionaire this Monday night 7pm at Vineyard. We will try our hand at cooking Indian snacks for concessions to raise money for our trip! Anyone is welcome to come! Here's a missions preview our tireless volunteer Mark Lewis made to show before the movie, it's the first of three. I love it and can't wait to see what else he comes up with!
