Traveling to the Original Indy

In four weeks from today we will board a plane bound for India. We will be sight seeing, teaching English accent reduction, talking about our jobs and most importantly sharing our faith.

Many of you already know about our trip. It has been in the planning stages for over six months, but now it is right around the corner. We will spend our time in a few big cities in Northern India. From the time we leave to the time we get back will total 15 days. Unfortunately, we are not expecting to have internet or phone access while we are away. But we are bringing a camera and will certainly have many photos and adventures to tell you about when we get back. I am personally excited that the holidays will be starting just a week after we return – lots of good quality time to share stories.

While we get ready for the trip, pray that God would prepare our heart and minds. Of course pray for safe travels, we will really be racking up the frequent flier miles. There will be seven people total in the group, plus locals we will be able to meeting, tour and work with. We have only met two of them before, pray for unity and the ability for everyone to be on the same page. Pray that I can handle all the spicy food and that we stay healthy. Pray for those we will meet, that they would be open to listening. And pray that we do not lean on our own understanding, but in all that we do lean on Jesus and let him direct our path (Prov 3:5-6).

We look forward to it, are a little bit nervous, but will certainly grow a lot!


It is stretching it to say I am a blonde, but Oct 5 I was part of the tri team, the Triathablondes.  Kristin, Steph and I were a relay team for the Susan Bradley-Cox Tri for Sight.  We had great fun posting a 2:09:44.  Great job girls!

Pablo’s twin?

So I have wondered about Pablo and his origins since I first saw him…well, I found his twin, who is also a stray so I am no more knowledgeable than before.  I found this little guy at the Cave Run Story Telling Festival the last weekend in September.

Can you tell which one is Pablo?
