I wonder...

Well, today is the day I've been wondering about for, roughly, 8 short weeks.

For any of you who have ventured to another part of God's great big world as part of a short term mission team, you know exactly how I feel.

However, I had no idea THIS is how you felt...

I wonder what adventures await me in India? (well, beyond squatter toilets, that is)

I wonder when the butterflies in my stomach will stop their acrobatics?
I wonder who I will meet.
I wonder if there will be one, or more, women who I just "click" with?
I wonder what it will be like to communicate through an interpreter?
I wonder what I will see, what I will hear?
I wonder what I will eat? (ohhhh, my... butterflies again)
I wonder how many beautiful colors I will see?
I wonder which experience(s) will leave me breathless?
I wonder how many pictures I'll take?
I wonder what I will buy as a beautiful reminder?
I wonder how God will surprise me?
I wonder what I will learn?
I wonder if I will ever go back?

I feel very wonder full this morning.

Some day I'll share the stories that began as wonder, only to turn into an adventure that changed my life.


  1. Prayers for you and the team as you embark on this journey. It will be a trip that you will never forget, I am sure. And one that God will be faithful on as you and the team have been faithful in your calling there. Blessings will abound and you life will be forever changed.

    Can't wait to hear all about the adventures and see the beautiful country and people you meet in your stories and pictures.

    Safe travels.

  2. I can't help but wondering why I have so many acrobatic butterflies, when it is YOU that is going. :0) Absolutely cannot wait to hear what God did during this trip! XOXOXOXOXO

  3. You're going to India? I have two friends who just left for a missions trip in India yesterday. How funny! I hope your trip is amazing!
