My Favorite ME

Standing beside these beautiful women is one of the greatest honors of my life.  I am so grateful to God for allowing me to see a dream fulfilled this side of Heaven by bringing some hope, some encouragement, some of God’s spirit to the darkest places. 

When I was sweating to death in Kalavai, walking around from here to there, I thought to myself, “My favorite Me is when I am with them”.  I know that sounds strange, but I know down to my toes that walking among the poor is where I am meant to be.  When my girls and husband go with me to these places, I feel like I am missing nothing, and I am totally “in the zone”.

When I say, I am bringing them hope, I am not saying it is by anything I am doing.  God is alive and at work in the places we have visited. Nothing I do or don’t do can change that.  My job is to tell their stories, so women like Miss Lily, Manju, and others are encouraged and don’t feel so alone.  Giving a voice to these women who have no voice…that is the greatest honor of my life so far, outside of being married to Rob and having 3 amazing girls of my own. 

I’m not packing up and moving to India, but my heart is there.  My thoughts go there frequently throughout the day.  I’m giving what I can when I can to beautiful women like you see above.

    It is obvious from your daily conversations with us that this is where you have your heart planted. I can imagine the hope you give them must be a million fold what you give us everyday.
