A Week in the Life

Teaching the river kids a Nepali Christian song with motions, Maya telling me,”put your hands on the dog and pray so there will be power,” Nanda’s mom eating ice cream for the very first time ever, praying for sick people (and dogs), giving out Christian tracts at the river community, hearing from the kids at the river which has been their favorite Bible stories, Nanda teaching Disciple Training School at a YWAM base, boys starting a new school year, trying to figure out how to make the best out of a major mistake made on our house, Kumar becoming more confident to translate for me, my shoe getting stuck in inches of thick, smelly, black sludge (or something), eating a cucumber with an old lady on her porch as she makes plates out of leaves for Hindu worship, singing a song to a little crippled boy in my lap, nursing a painful boil on Prakash’s eyelid, Nanda’s mom with tears in her eyes as Nanda is teaching at church, precious time spent in prayer and being thankful for it all.

We hope your week has been great!
