If I could talk to Mother Teresa.....

Sometimes I wish I had the chance to speak with Mother Teresa, especially right now as I am preparing to enter the mission field.  What I wouldn’t give to have just 1 hour with her. I wonder how she did what she did.
·                    Was she terrified to leave everything she knew, everything that was comfortable, so she could love strangers in a foreign land?
·                    What were the dreams and desires she sacrificed as she pursued new dreams and desires given by God?
·                    Did she desire to be married or was she OK with being single?
·                    What did she pray to God about?
·                    What made her cry?
·                    What brought her joy?
·                    What was her worst day like? How did she get through it?
·                    What was her best day like?
·                    What did she think of the world?
·                    What did she think of the publicity surrounding her?
·                    Was she ever scared? What made her scared?
·                    How did she survive? How did God provide?
·                    What were her final words?
·                    What advice would she give me?

As I prepare to go on my own journey, as a foreigner to another foreign land, I can’t help but wonder….
·                    Will they accept me?
·                    How will they treat me?
·                    Can I love them the way Jesus does?
·                    Will they accept the message I have for them?
·                    Will they know Jesus loves them?

I’m terrified and excited all at the same time!
