So to my faithful readers that wonder if i feel off the earth.. sorry but the internet has not been working at my house. I don’t know what is going on, but i just found out who to call i think that can fix it.. so i am going by there this afternoon. it is so funny because i was realizing the other day that I think of my life in terms of a blog entry… i am always thinking.. i should write that for my faithful readers of my blog. SO I just wanted you to know I think of you throughout the entire day!
SO I am at the only coffeeshop in town sipping an almond latte (mahima), wearing long johns and a fleece top and still shivering 🙂 But warm in my heart when I think of you guys (now that was sure cheesy huh!) Things here have been awesome.. busy.. i think this kind of works means around christmas you are busier then ever. But it defionatly means that you are busy with different types of things. so it’s christmas and i have not bought presents. Crazy huh. This christmas has been spent with having people over, planning a christmas pagent play thing, using christmas as an oppertunity to share the gospel with as many people as you can. And it has been a blast. Especially as I have planned for this christmas play have i see the glories of the gospel. It is chaos.. and hilarious and i have no idea what is going on most of the time, but on friday the 21st atg 3:30 (which means it will start at 4:00 nepalee time) I know that God is going to be glorified. Please pray for this pagent.. and that many many hindu people will come. It’s hiarious from the people playing mary and joseph wanting their two year old to play baby jesus and the 2 year old not wanting to stay in a manger.. to our little orphans playing the sheep. i will take pictures and post them (please pray that my internet starts working again!)
I really appreciate your prayers during this holiday season as I miss my family very much. however I am also feeling soo blessed to be here. Last night at our weekly house fellowship we were singing christmas carols around my pitiful christmas tree in the dark because the power went out.. there were americans, a girl from uganda, and a girl from holland.. and i just realized that this year more then ever I am truly realizing that JESUS is the entire reason for the season.
i have to share one more thing for sandra ( i am praying for you sooo much sandra and i am wearing the long johns that you sent me right now) I have not been able to ride my scooter because just like in america my scooter only worked one time and then i have not been able to get it to work (that always happens to my cars in america, nothing new).. but nathan’s friend came and fixed it.. so i realized frankly i am terrified to drive this thing. But I have to do it. That very day in the mail i got a keychain from sandra with the words inscribed heaven’s warrior princess! i know it’s crazy but that is exactly what i needed. I became a warrior princess in my mind. I hopped on that scooter and off i went. I practiced on the small roads and only took out one small duckling.. sorry.. i didn’t ‘mean to .. encountered lots of children and they were still alive and cows also. So then as I repeated heavens warrior princess over and over as my mantra I decided.. dum dum dum.. to cross ring road. That’s the main road here and I would have to cross it to get anywhere else. It’s terryifying really– remember there are no road rules here. So I kept repeated warrior princess and i got myself in with a group of motorcycles and decide when they went i went . I could hear the theme from rocky playing in my mind. In my mind it was quite the scene from a movie. It ws like getting on the interstate for the first time.. except you cross at like five miles and hour and just dodge. And I did it. i successfully did it!! wahoo! I AM a warrior princess on my motorocyle (ok.. moped but still that doesn’t sound as warrior princess like) I was going to use it this morning, then it would not start again. just like america. I think it does not like the cold.
i love you all
