Hello to my favorite people in the world…
Hope you all are doing well. Wow. I cannot believe it is the middle of september already. time flies when you are on adventure with the Lord.
So today and yesterday were great days. Last night I went to the Bible college and hung out with the girls. I love them so much. They are just the most beautiful women of God and I want to be like them when I grow up. I led them in a devotional time on Ephesians 6. This particular passage was strongly on my heart because again this week I can truly feel mighty spiritual oppression, as this week is a huge Hindu festival where the women fast and go to the temple to pray to the idols for their husbands or to get a husband. You can feel the spiritual battle. Today I was able to tell a lady that I met who was Hindu that I am a christian and do not have to go to the temple to pray for my husband.. in fact that God promises to be my husband. Pray that in my limited language ability that she understood some kernal of truth.
Today I taught my first real class at the Bible college and had a ball. Michelle, family and Casey– you would be pleased to know that I was speaking on animism in world religions class and used the Leo the Lion as a visiual aide. They loved him! He has come quite in handy! SO i love love love teaching and realized this is quite a passion of mine. Pray as two of the girls that are fixing to graduate the Bible college have asked me to pray about coming to their village with them for two weeks in october and help them in the beginning stages of plantint a church!
So my language teacher today gave me the bill for august and september and since august 21st i have offically done 32 hours of language. Wow. Glory be. He made me so happy today because he giggled in his cute little old nepalee man way and told me that I was doing a dery rhombro job (a very good job). He said he liked my learning style. I think what he meant was he likes it that I am learning to laugh when I want to cry out in frustration instead.. hehehe. we spend alot of time laughing.. because it’s either laugh or cry so I have chosen the laughter! I have now learned to read and all of our lessons come from nepalee script. Today I was trying to say that I thought my roommates outfit was beautiful to my language teacher and i accidently said that she was a female monkey!
one of these days I will post what nepalee script looks like so that you can see an example. Somedays I see it in my sleep.
ok.. that’s all for now. I just wanted to check in and let you know how my days were. I appreciate your faithfulness to read, and especialy comment. I look so forward to reading the comments!
