Hey guys. You guys amaze me at your faithfulness to read this blog. Wow. it is really humbling and i really appreciate it.. all of your comments make me feel continued to be connected to home.
Well yesterday I had my first fellowship at my house with other “m’s” and it was great fun. The best part was trying to figure out how to cook for them. I went to what semi resembles a grocery store (more like a slightly larger mini mart) and tried to buy things that might make chili.. hehehe.. what ended up happening was a slightly meatier version of spaghetti sauce made from buffulo meat.. but we called it chili and they ate it anyways. Making desert was hilarious to.. have you ever made a cake in a toaster oven.. when the electricity goes off at leaves 3 times in the middle.. i have now. Have you ever made oatmeal choch. candy without most of the ingridents on a gas burner.. i have.. and people ate them… meato cha (delicious in nepalee).
So tonight I went with the lady from the hospital where I worked last time who had accepted christ and is now in bible college to a worship service at her bible college. Again the beauty of these christians blew me away. What a worship service. I had tears streaming down my face as I watched them who have chosen to give it all for christ worship wtih such Joy! I heard the Lord say to me.. I did not call you here because I need you to gather worshippers for me.. I called you here to worship me!! Whew. God is teaching me alot about true worship. It’s not about singing the right praise song, organ or no organ, contemporary or not.. it’s about falling at the throne of grace with confidence and realizing that we serve a God who is the name of ALL names. I cannot wait to see what worship in heaven in like.. because it’s sure fun here!
I start official language lessons tommorow. My friend Sita that I mentioned before has been coming and teaching me informally about 3 hours 3 days a week and that will continue also. She has become quite an awesome friend. I am throwing her a birthday party on saturday. 🙂
