For awhile I kept asking the Lord to take me deeper into His heart. This 2-week missions trip to Andhra Pradesh, India was His response: “Come and see.”
If you asked me how the trip was, I probably told you “It was an amazing trip. There’s so much to process still..” when in fact I meant to say that my heart has been overwhelmed with joy, with grief, with hope, with a desire and conviction to give my life fully to God and His works… and that my heart remains broken having heard the stories of the orphaned children whose names are no longer unknown to me… and that months and years and decades from now I’d still be processing all of this, alongside all the other journeys of who knows where God would take me… and that the needs are great and workers few, but each worker makes an eternity of a difference… and that God has been humbling me by the mighty works that He has ALREADY been doing in India, and by the dedication of His workers there… and that for the first time I experienced what Jesus meant when he said “My food is to do the Father’s will”… and that there’s been so much of His wonders to see and hear but my heart and mind can’t contain them all, so what I can bring back to you is only everything that my small hands can gather.
Please, come and see.
