been too long

Sorry guys, I've been lazy lately. I hate putting up honest feelings on the internet, and so it has made me want to neglect the blog.

So a lot has happened since I last wrote. The contract has been signed and some day soon me and the servant team will get to go and clean up the place near the gach. It is pretty much a privilege to get to be a part of that. It is almost a month until I go home. I'm excited. The end is finally in sight. I'm for sure also praying that I will do all that God calls me to here. I want to make the most of every opportunity, and I want to fall in love with Jesus. I need Him. I've spent a good amount of time in the Word the past few days and it has been super good. I've been here almost 3 months and I'll say I'm used to living here at this point. I'm used to seeing a bunch of naked guys at Kalighat. I'm used to living in an extremely dirty, ugly city. I'm used to being around a ton of horns. I'm used to it. I guess there are still good and bad days...days where I want to scream "shutup" to the auto rickshaw driver for honking a ridiculous amount for no reason, and days where I want to just jump around and praise God. That may sound stupid, but it is pretty much true. I'm still continually broken for the unbelief I see here. Calcutta needs revival. Pray for it. India needs revival. America needs revival. I can look at all the little mini-temples that are set up everywhere and as I pass by the people each night ringing bells and saying prayers to their "gods" who are in actuality either nothing or demons. They are wasting their lives...and Americans are wasting their lives worshipping the God of Money and Sex. Good game. Unbelief is everywhere, just look. My heart definitely breaks for America at this point. These same general thoughts came in my head last summer when I was in China looking at all of the buddhism. Satan doesn't really care what you worship, as long as it isn't the God who created the universe. The God who sent his son Jesus to earth. That is the God I praise, not some flipping thing created by man.

Ok how's that for a sermon hahaha. I think I'm just passionate when it comes to this. Maybe also I'm listening to Crowder on youtube, "You Never Let Go," so that is causing me to get all pumped up. Probably both.

So basically, India needs Jesus, just like America does, just like the world does...
