While in India I met S-. She is a friend who inspires me to live outside my own safe world.Our Mountain Christian team arrived in Delhi early on a Wednesday morning with the purpose of seeing Genesis of Hope in action. Within hours, jetlagged and sweaty, we entered a room of women and girls with whom I was expected to share a message. A solemn sari-clad woman - my future friend - would be translator.

During a trip to India last year with Genesis of Hope we visited a children’s center called Shahabad Dairy. That evening after returning, I reflected on what I saw and decided to look the community up on the internet. What I read was alarming. It described a community of violence, crime, and unrest; a place that even the police did not like to go and would only go into as a group.  It is an area where children are said to be especially vulnerable as the number of abductions is unusually high.

I don’t know why she called me. I don’t even know why she noticed me or knew I existed. She called to invite me to join a high school/college girls’ group she’d started. I couldn’t make it on the day and time they were all meeting. So she, with 4 children, a husband, a household to run and other ministries going on, rearranged her whole life to allow me into it. She offered to have me...
