Thoughts from India Out of comfort into an adventure: I am a girl of comfort. I want my pillow, my blanket my fan and espresso. I want a soft mattress. So thankful that God delivers what I need even if I don’t get what I want. Father, lead me to go wherever you are, where you are working. Thank you, Father for Rahab’s Rope working to do what you purpose and for the opportunity to be a small part of your bigger plan.

Venture into God's Love The jet lag is real, friends, and so are the overwhelming emotions of visiting India for the first time. What better way to spend the wee hours of the morning on my second day back in the states, than trying to put into words my experience with Rahab’s Rope? I can think of no better way as I catch up on my recorded “shows,” and snuggle with my puppies.

Children's Home Offering Hope I'll never forget today. This morning started out pretty normal, if waking up in India ever could be. This was an errand day for the most part. We’re preparing for a team to arrive tomorrow night that we'll be hosting so we had shopping, reorganizing, laundry, all normal things.

From a Short Term Volunteer In June, I spent two weeks in Goa. I had never flown without my family. I had never met any of these team members. I had never even been out of the country, so this was a major jump, but it was so rewarding. I met some amazing people. I could not have asked for a better team. I felt like I had known them for years. We laughed, cried, and stepped in cow poop together, and with an experience like that, how could you not be close? We really connected and had a phenomenal time with each other, but I met some amazing people with such strong testimonies of faith. One teenage boy in particular literally hid from his Hindu father so that he could go to a believer church on Sunday. That was so convicting. How often do we think, “Maybe I’ll just sleep in and miss Sunday school, but I’ll try to make it to church.”? But this kid was hungry for the word of God and the fellowship of other believers. That was so encouraging but also caused me to take a look at myself and what I was putting first.
