Today, I’m headed to India for two weeks.  You may remember that I work for Rahab’s Rope, which is a non-profit that works with women and children in India who are at risk or have been victims of human trafficking.  My job is to recruit and coordinate all of our short-term volunteers/mission teams.  I’ll better be able to do that when I’ve, you know, actually been there.

So, with a mixture of nervousness and excitement, I’m about to board a very long flight(s), travel for over 24 hours, and then experience likely the greatest culture shock of my life.  I know it will be worth it, but I still wouldn’t mind your prayers.

That being said, I’m scheduling a few posts to go up while I’m away.  I don’t know that I’ll have much time to blog, and honestly, you won’t probably want to see what I wear when I’m over there.  I mean, really – I bought these shoes to wear:

I do promise to show you SOME Indian fashion when I return.  In the meantime, you can always browse rahabsrope.org for pretty jewelry and gifts that support the cause.  The necklace I’m wearing in this outfit (don’t mind the chipped nail polish) is one of our pieces, handmade by Paula in our office in Georgia, and the pearl is freshwater – as are all of our pearls.

So, again, I hope you’ll pray for me while I’m away and I promise I will have a few posts between now and when I return.  Then, give me a few days to readjust to our blessed American life, and we’ll be back to business as usual – with, hopefully, a side of deeper compassion.
