See that young lady in the back row, last one on the right?

That’s my daughter Kayla and today she leaves at 2:10 P.M to travel 13 hours to Hyderabad, India for a Worship Missions trip.

Do you know geography? India is surrounded by China, and (gulp) Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Thank heavens they’ll be in SOUTH CENTRAL India.

Worship missions are music teams that travel around ministering to different areas in need.  My daughter will be playing the drums (she also plays guitar, but not for this trip).

These kids have been praying and excited for this trip for the better part of the school year.   They can’t wait to get started.  This past week they spent an intense week in training, going through scenarios specific to the country and culture. They were taught spiritual training as well as respect for the culture.  Very important to me, they were taught about staying together as a group.

They will be ministering in several areas and villages around Hyderabad, including the slums (Did you see Slumdog?), orphanages, churches, HIV/AIDS homes, and one day they’ll even be in a prostitute village.  They’ll also help in a medical camp.

I would absolutely love and appreciate your prayers for this awesome team (and mom too!) during the next 40 days. 

Yes, you heard me correctly – FORTY days.  I won’t be able to speak to her on the phone, but they will have internet access and be able to check in occasionally on Facebook and e-mail. 

If you’d like to help support them in prayer, I’ve created a Facebook group that you can join.
