But the one thing I told myself was that if my dad was ok with it, then I would consider. When I went to India, my dad was so upset that he didn't talk to me for the six weeks before I left, which was heartbreaking. I didn't want to go through that again.
So I heard about a medical mission trip to Africa through work and it interested me. When I mentioned it to my dad, he seemed very ok with the idea, since it would be with a "legitimate organization and not two girls bumming around the country."
So now it's time to pray.
