We count each day a wonderful privilege here in this nation. The privileges our home land offers stand in stark contrast to many of the daily challenges the people in this nation deal with.
Fresh water, housing, commuting, quiet, order, work, the list goes on and yet all of those things pale into insignificance when lined up with what God is doing amongst the peoples of Nepal. Today we relished the privilege to spend time with a group of rescued women.
Rescued from unspeakable horrors imposed on them, freed to a new life, redeemed as they each met God and now living life large and in charge. Their smiles tell stories of miracles, healing and unconditional love. Such a privilege to be with them again.
The team are well and each enjoying the roles assigned while here. We have been progressing the sponsorship updates and taking new photos that show off many new hair do's, growth and accomplishments.
Mackay have a school group in western Nepal busily assisting there. They are a great group of young people who launched into their time here from the moment they touched down.
There have been many changes here. Not the least from the natural disasters but also changes in the ways programs are offered. A new regime of principals to ensure safety and protection for both the children and those visiting has been implemented. The inevitable teething time has called for patience as we negotiate the new approaches. These changes will result in continued positive experiences for all involved.
Grahame, Robyn and Agnes arrive soon from Myanmar to continue work at a new school venture in Hetauda.
Hetauda is an important sub metropolitan area in the south and is in close proximity to the Chepang peoples. The new school venture, hostels, water purification plants etc are critical steps for this region and the people we connect with there.
Until next time, thank you for your prayers, greetings from Nepal.
