Before we went to India we were Christians. We believed in a 100 percent good God who wanted to be an active part of our lives. Albeit in a passive be good, have good character, save us from a our own stupidity, wisps of a wind kind of a way.
Our time of India changed that. Suddenly God was not as distant, He was near. He was not nearly silent He was clear. We prepared, went to, and recovered from being in India and our faith was different, but the same. I think our world view changed more than our faith.
With the adventure gone, did my faith go with it? No. My world view changed, not my faith. Honestly I did not like a lot of the adventure of our time in India. I dreamed of what I have now. Yet now I dream of adventure like India? I know of a REAL God, who holds our hand. He is good, 100% good. Evil exists in this world and he holds our hands when it is near. He fights it off if it gets too near. He sees more than we see. He knows more than we know. He cares.
India was a part of our lives, a place to reset our world view to one that is more useful to God. The work we did in India is a foundation that has grown and matured and is still impacting India. India changed us and we changed India both for God's kingdom.
