Most of you who read this blog know that I’m a huge supporter of Compassion International. I had the opportunity to travel with them to India a few years ago and see a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff,which made me fall more in love with their heartbeat and mission.
Shaun Groves has asked me to travel a few more times, but it just hasn’t worked out. Recently he let me know there was going to be a trip to Peru in November, but as much as I wanted to do it, it was in between my WOF tour and Todd’s Christmas tour and I didn’t want to be away any more than I needed to. I declined the offer but it nagged at me for the next several days.
Todd and I prayed about it and really both felt like the Lord was clear with what He desired.
So I let Shaun know that I would go, but there was one itsy-bitsy stipulation…
Let’s just say that they made a big exception, and Abby and Ellie are going to have a very hands-on “field trip” this school year 🙂
It isn’t until November, but I covet your prayers for us. Of course I will keep you all updated as I learn more, but wanted to let you know it was going to happen.
Y’all know I’m not a big fan of flying, being away from home, or much outside of my comfort zone..
But for the kids that could be impacted by this trip? Worth every second.
Thank you in advance for your prayers-not just for my family but for the kiddos whose lives will be changed through the work of Compassion.
