Jaymase (hello.. the christian greeting here in case you forgot). I am sitting her with my own computer (my computer chord got fixed.. mahima) and wtih my new chris tomlin cd playing in the background.. (thank you soo much Sandra.. you have no idea how much i was excited because I love that cd and i forgot to bring it.. so I was thrilled.. i am dancing with Jesus.. ok.. not as I type.. i am not quite that good but hey). I thought you guys might want to see a few pictuers since I have not posted any lately. These pictures were taken while leah’s friends were here! The bottom picture is of me and my bible study girls.. I gave them all roses on valentines day so that is the picture of us all holding our roses (boys.. i mean really if you want to be a born romantic come to nepal.. i bought 2 dozen beautiful roses for 10 dollars..and with no electricity you could have a candlelight dinner every night!)
I am just soo rejoicing in God right now. Did I mention how privlidged I am to serve God here. I mean for those of you that feel sorry for me and think I am really suffering for Jesus.. just know.. yup… there are some hardships but I truly believe I have been given the BEST job in the whole world!! I was laughing so hard the other day because I saw an article which made headline news on Yahoo that said Florida in chaos after power outage. This intrigued me so I read on.. I was laughing so hard at the article.. they lost power for 30 minutes.. hehehe.. as I was reading the article.. on our time when we were scheduled to have electricity our power went out 3 different times.. 🙂 I loved the last of the article which said there was no power so starbucks was afraid their sandwhiches would spoil so they started giving them out for free…. hehhe… leah and i had just had the discssion that we might need to revert to eating only sandwhiches because our cooking gas is almost out and you can’t get cooking gas anywhere… hehehe.. two different lives.
Anyways.. back to why I love my job.. becuase you know why… I am realizing more and more how much God loves me. And the more I realize that the more easy my job is because it pours out of overflow of knowing that I am loved and I can’t wait to pour that love on others. This week has been awesome. On Tuesday night we went to a children’s meeting led by the girl that I disciple Sita. It was soo cool to watch those precious kids memorize verses. After that we went with Margie (the lady who lives upstairs) to her old landowners house and we met with them. It was amazing because this very hindu lady (there were idols everywhere) was desperate… nowadays the situation in nepal has made every one desperate. Her son is I truly believe demon possessed or opressed and keeps trying to committ suicide.. there was defionatly a spiritual battle going on for that household. With tears in her eyes she begged us to pray for her family.. so we did. And it was the coolest thing because I really do believe that the Holy Spirit prayed through me. We were able to pray in Jesus name and I was able to pray comletely in nepalee.. it was so exciting.
Then last night 3 new ladies came to the Bible study God has given to me (which is now bursting out of the seams) one of which was the hindu lady i had met walking on the street the other day. I had spent all morning preparing to teach because I have to teach in nepalee so I have to study alot! 🙂 Then when I started talking God would not let me talk about what I had studied all morning. I just had to let him take over and I had no idea what was coming next, but GOD gave me the words. At the end this lady came up to me crying and said this is exactly what I needed to hear! I love how God changes things to give his message and not our own. I cannot tell you enough in words how much I love these ladies and what God has blessed me with the oppertunity to do! Did I mention I love my Job.. But I will admit only when I am relying on the power of the Holy Spirit.. otherwise there is no way that I would love being in a third world country with no power, garbage everywhere and people communicating in a language that I have to learn.
ok.. i know this is so long and I am so sorry if you are bored.. but I am just overflowing with things to say. Just one more funny story and then I am done. Yesterday I went running.. I have really been trying to run alot more. Well what do you do when you are running and your path gets blocked by three huge cows with horns.. bulls you might say. These cows had been worshipped that morning and had the puja (red paste) on their head to show that (and they also had poo stuck to their bottoms.. no disrespect but I am so glad that we don’t worship a god like that). I did the only thing I knew to do so that I could get by. I said.. um… JESUS… and those cows scattered chito chito (quickly quickly). So for future note if your path gets blocks by three cows as you are walking… just say Jesus name.
In Jesus name.. Jenn
