Pre-India (TOMORROW!)

For ANM (Advancing Native Missions) I am supposed to write a brief synopsis of pre-India, while in India, and post-India paragraph.  I figured I'd post it on here since I have now given this blog to people who know I'm going to India.  

I am excited, I am nervous, I am still in the stage where it hasn't occurred to me that I'm going to India tomorrow.  I feel like when you're going on a big trip that you have been preparing for over a period of months, reality doesn't check in until you're on an airplane.  I am expecting big things for this trip.  How can I not when I have a big God?  I have been so beaten down by spiritual warfare lately that I know God has to move hardcore in the darkness of Mumbai.  I am stoked to speak life and love over people in India, whether they be Bombay Teen Challenge employees/volunteers, prostitutes, little children, AIDS victims, my own team members.  I am ready to be in India.  In 2009, knowing I would one day stand in India, I wrote this prayer:
Jesus have your way with India. My dreams belong wholly to you my King. I am Yours Beloved. You love your children in India and I love that I get to serve you. You Father, are going to change me in to such a new daughter after getting the opportunity to literally wash your feet, hold you, feed you, bathe you, massage your aching body, clean the pus from your wounds, love you Jesus.
I leave you, and the country with Matthew 25:34-40: “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father,inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
