So yesterday I had my first birthday party for a nepalee. It was an incredible time. And believe it or not.. the chocholate cake was actually eadible..(i don’t think that’s the way you spell that). You can see a picture of me and the homemade choch. cake and the birthday girl.. blowing out her one candle in the center. It was so much fun to see how excited she was to have a birthday party– apparently that’s not normal here. By the way– if someone that’s nepalee ever tells you that they invited 5 people and that 5 people are coming.. expect 20.. because there were 16 people here to eat. 🙂 It was hilarous because I do not speak enough nepalee.. and they don’t speak english.. so what do you do at a birthday party? Well I decided to teach them to play spoons.. trying to explain it in my alle alle (very little nepalee) was hilarous … but it worked and we had a BLAST. There is also a picture of them playing spoons.
I am doing really well. God is teaching me soo much and these past two days have been awesome. Worship at nep. church was incredible. It’s just so awesome to see them worship the king, even in an unknown language to. I am truly learning to praise without words. 🙂 I had my first real shower today. I figured out (with nathans’ wonderful help) that we did have enough running water for my shower.. i just wasn’t pushing the right knobs.. hehhe.. living here is completely humbling experience. It’s like being a child again…. however, I didn’t care to be humbled as I ENJOYED so much my first shower since I have been here (bucket baths just aren’t the same)
