Our team has made it to Kathmandu, Nepal! They left Qatar early this morning (last night, Wheeling time). Gretchen reports that they were feeling wonderfully refreshed after sleeping, showering, coffee, and some "really good muffins!" Praise God for their safe arrival and answered prayers.
When they arrived, they had all ten bags of gear and gifts (another answered prayer!). Gifts have already been given to the hosts, who are "overwhelmed with gifts. Very excited. Very!" Thank you, FBC, for the part you played in encouraging those who are serving the Lord in Nepal.
Our team will be staying at the BMDMI guest house tonight, and traveling to the village tomorrow on a 6 hour jeep trip. They are thankful and encouraged tonight. Please continue to pray that they will remain as such, and ready to do the work for which they have gone. Gretchen tells me that seeing all of the Nepali people keeps them focused on their goal. Your prayers truly are making a difference--keep it up!
Please pray for:
-a good night of rest for our team
-safe travel to the village tomorrow
-smooth set up of camp (their home for the next several days)
-no leeches or issues with camp
-the families of our team
-the Nepali people who will be with our team (many of whom are also traveling)
