Tomorrow(Saturday) I leave for a 2 week missions trip to Kolkata, India. I will be going by myself(I know, I know) and working at an orphanage that is home to 300 children. I am SO excited about this opportunity. I realized today, that I have never had to trust God more in my life. There are a lot of unknowns and this trip will test my flexibility and faith, I'm sure of it. All I know is that after a 21 hr flight, 2 missionaries will be picking me up at the airport, and my journey will begin!

Thanks to everyone who has already been praying...If you want to join in, here's some things you can pray for too!

1) I'm sick :( pray it goes away quickly!
2) That I'll be able to rest on the plane
3) That I don't have any problems with customs...I can't tell them I'm doing missionary work.
4) That I am safe, and for comfort for my mom :)
5)That I will be able to touch the lives of as many of those kids as possible!
6) That I will be a blessing to the women who run the orphanage.
7) and most importantly (haha) I won't get sick, and I can handle the food!

I love you all, and thanks for praying! Talk to you in 2 weeks!
