This post is not about what you think it’s about….haha…
It’s about missions. ;0) I am a missionary, and while I am very adventurous, and have a desire to see as much of the world as I can, there are some places I have never had a desire to go. I’ve been pretty iffy about going to India.
In fact, missionaries tend to fall into two categories when it comes to a place like India – they are either waaay into it, and love everything about it, or they have no desire to go there. I have been in the latter category. I don’t know why, but it could be the slight feeling of claustrophobia I get just looking at pictures of India. And I’ve heard a few stories about the tremendous heat and overwhelming smells, and it just gets to me.
Tonight, however, I saw Slumdog Millionaire, and I felt this little spark in my heart. There was something about the people, the warmth, and the desperate need of so many of the people shown. I still may never go, but now I am beginning to wonder if I should. Hmmm….a passion for India developing? Perhaps!
