It may be also that I’m 98% scared and 2% excited but there’s hardly a difference… I’m getting the final stuff (packing, buying junk, praying, spending time with my fam) done for my trip to India with my Pastor, mentor, friend, Landon Schott. After a conversation with my wife I realized why I’m going on this trip… To serve Landon.
I realized it’s not about the trip, the experience, me, or anything else I first thought. It’s about serving him. You see as amazing of a man as he is, he just, and by just I mean his daughter is about 4 months old, became a daddy. He has no idea that his heart is about to ripped from his chest and trampled on by emotions. He doesn’t, I do, I’ve been there before. I’ve spent 16 days away from my wife and son before. I know it’s not going to be easy for me to do it again but it will be easier on me than him.
He will be speaking 10 times in 5 days during this time, I’m not. He has the responsibility of vision casting to 10s of thousands of youth pastors to start 800 youth churches in India, I don’t. All I have to do is serve… I can’t wait.
