Raising support is funny.
You get put in this place where you have to rely on others for accomplishing the things you feel God has called you to.
You have to trust that God actually called you to them and believe that He will make it happen.
You have have faith that others will jump on board with this dream and have a desire to help you make it happen.
There is me.
And there is a dream.
I've been told to chase the dream.
With a blindfold and handcuffs on.
In a 3-legged race.
It is a place of totally relinquishing control.
I don't do relinquishing well.
And the funniest part is, you have to invest a certain amount of money in order to see the money come in.
Counterintuitive if you ask me.
We copied folded, tied, stuffed, addressed, and sealed so many letters last night for my trip to India.
It's an investment.
Color copies ain't cheap.
And people want to see pretty pictures of what i'm up to.
Stamps ain't cheap.
And these letters ain't mailin themselves.
If you get a letter from me, just do me one favor.
It doesn't matter how you choose to respond to it.
I've relinquished control over that.
But please don't throw it away.
At least until after the trip.
And then maybe wait another year or so.
Because the letter is pretty and fun to look at.
And maybe you'll want to pray for me when you see it.
