Happy one month anniversary to me. I have officially been here for one month today. Wow! Crazy huh! There are days when it seems it has flown by, other days when it has not! 🙂
I was at international church today and just rejoicing and praising God.. He has truly brought me to a place where i am beginning to know HIM like I never would have before. I mean.. i know i’ve been here before .. but it’s sooo much different making your home in a country that is so different from your own. I was overwhelmed at church today thinking that GOD called me to live this life. WOW. In the good days and bad, He is teaching me HIS all encompassing, never failing, amazing love. At international church, where there are truly many many different nations represented, tears streamed down my face as I sing the worship songs in a new way. I can sing blessed be your name– in a land that is plentiful, in a wilderness– you give and take away and know it in a whole new way. I can also sing How great is our God and Great is THY faithfulness in a whole new way to! God is teaching me now how to have a Mary heart in a “mission.” world. So I will keep you updated as He teaches me these things.
As for my weekend– it was great. Busy but good. Saturday was nep. church which I LOVE.. I am coming to love the fellowship of believers there so much. They just radiate the king. Friday night I hung out at the Bible college with my students (we watched facing the giants.. thanks TJ.. they loved it.. as did I .. the third time I have watched it since i have been here). Then saturday night we had momo making party at the college. Momos are like steamed dumplings, and we made like 600 of them. It was awesome. I have never seen so much dough… I had a blast.. and it turned into a huge flour fight, as you will hopefully see in the pictures. (if they download). I am falling more in love with the students, and realizing this is the ministry that I am most passionate about here. These are those that are going to change nep. for Christ. For example in the taxi on the way to international church today, one of my students who went with me shared the gospel with the driver. And I thought God needed me here! The amazing thing is HE wants me.
oh yeah– thank you so much for the other card sandra.. you are amazing. It blessed my socks off and was the exact perfect word that I needed from the Lord.
