So my mom left to go on a ministry trip on (last) March 9th, it was her first time out of the country and she had an amazing experience! She went with 8 other people and they helped with a conference for the pastors (current and to be.) and the pastor's families who are building churches in India.
amazing view from the plane!!
I've never been on a plane but i really want to! :)
my mom had to get on 4 planes before she got to her final desintation. plus India in 10 hours ahead of us(EST) and so she left on a wednesday here but didn't get to Dehli till friday. crazy!!
