Three days until departure

It's only 3 days until I leave for India. The washer and the dryer are both on, all the groceries have been purchased (snacks for me to take and food for the fam while I'm gone), Jessica and I shopped for some things she needed last night...almost everything is done or close to getting done. (no, I have not started packing yet but I do know exactly what I am taking) The most important part of the trip, the whole reason I am going, is the hardest part to prepare. That's the ministry part. Ugh! I have been sitting at my desk almost all day...wanting to prepare, trying to prepare...but my mind wanders to the tasks that have to be done. Emails that have to be answered, plans that have to be made, clothes that have to be folded...

In the infinite wisdom of God He chose me (?) to go to India. Whoa. He goes before me and behind me. "Even before there is a word on my tongue, behold, O Lord, You know it all." (Ps. 139:4) I want to type right here -- could You just tell me in advance so I will know, too? Just kidding....sort of...

Back to work for me.

Serving the King,

I read this today (October 27th) and I realize you are already in India by now. I prayed and thanked God for your obedience and His faithfulness. Your blog is a blessing to me!
