In a little over a month I’m journeying to a distant land. A land described as “magical” by three different people during recent conversations.
I’ve always wanted to go. Mostly because it’s just about as foreign a place as I can imagine. But the yearning to go began when I was a very young Sunday school student. A favorite teacher told the story of Amy Carmichael, a missionary to India, who saved hundreds of children from lives of enslavement in the Temples. As an adult, I read every word Amy Carmichael wrote and she became my inspiration. Her story is empowering and life-giving.
I wrote about my faith and this inspiration for Vision Nationals, the organization I’ll be visiting and experiencing while in India. If you’re interested in checking out my guest post, click here:
I’m sure I’ll be posting about the food, culture and magic of India once I return.
Until then, tell me: Which inspiration from childhood still inspires you today?
