Packing day was amazing (we can fit a human into the duffle bags!!!)--seeing all of the time that people have put into this organization for us to actually get to India and to love the kids there. We really are all connected through service and by serving we can connect to others in a more personal and everlasting way! There is a strong feeling of excitement and love. The compassion lesson brought most to tears and was eye opening to everyone. This is why we are here, this is why we do this. The countdown starts, India is so close I feel like I can already smell it!
