India – an alternative?

As the trip with my cool, church friends to India approaches, I’m spending a lot of time wondering WHY I’m going. What is God trying to accomplish? Then I saw THIS:

Patients from all over the world flock to India not only for its rich culture and historical landmarks, but also for the quality of its cosmetic treatments. India is big on cosmetic surgery. In fact, plastic surgery originated in 3500 BC in ancient India and visitors can expect surgical procedures here to be of the highest standards.

Hmm. That’s interesting and all, but what does that have to do with me? Then I read THIS:

The average time off work seems to be about two weeks after a facelift.

Two weeks? Hey, that’s how long I’m going to be IN India. Surely it’s just a coincidence. But then I saw THIS:

Wow, hit me over the head with it, why don’t you? ┬áBut the trip is not just about ME. Imagine how the other four people going could use the opportunity to grow their spirit of care and compassion as they nursed me back to health.

It’s a win-win for everyone.
