I was so excited when I got the e-mail the other day that I hit 250. I appreciate everyone's interest in my escapades. Though I will no longer be in the classroom, I hope that you will stick with me as I begin my full time work with World Orphans.
I am still a ways away from starting my new job, but I am almost ready to begin the process of raising support. I plan to really dive into that process after Mission2India is "over."
For those that don't know or know just a little, Mission2India is a mission trip to India this August that I am helping lead. The trip is sponsored and co-led by World Orphans and supported by my local church. Most of the 14 team members go to my church and/or live near me in New Jersey.
My amazing team and I have been fundraising and preparing for a few months now, but I have been living and breathing this trip for almost a year now. In fact, by the time I go to India, I will have been planning this trip for exactly 1 year and 3 weeks. That's insane to me.
Now that it's July 18th, I am having a hard time believing that I will be back in India in less than a month!!! I cannot wait to be back with the beautiful orphans of Hyderabad that I met last year and to share the experience with the team.
All of this being said, I want to share something that I have been trying to hold on throughout this whole process of leading a team to India:
It's not about me.
It's all about Him.
At times it's been hard to remember, but God nudged me this week as I read through Matthew.
As you consider your leadership roles (teacher, parent, boss etc.), I hope that you will remember to keep your eyes fixed on the one who ultimately leads you and to humbly serve those who He has placed in your care.
Have a great weekend everyone!
