Do you guys remember way back in the day the video game called frogger. I mean really often that’s what I feel like when I am driving my scooter around. A mix between frogger and mario cart. It’s really quite an experience.
I am in the midst of baking a giant chocholate cake with my friend Ashley for a girls birthday party tonight ( keep in mind how things go in nepal.. I have only met the girl once) A homemade chocholate cake.. hmm.. smells yummy. So I thought I would write a blog real quick.
So yesterday I walked a pretty good ways through town from the immigration office to my house which means nothing to you but oh well with my Jesus. We were walking together with me having my music on my i-pod and I was having a grand time with Jesus. People kept trying to interpt our time.. but I was not having it.. first there was the taxi drivers that keep honking and pulling over thinking that as a white girl I can’t possibly walk. I mean really didn’t they see I was walking with my love.. Jesus. And then I think I scared the man walking beside me when I could not help but raise my hand as I was listening to a little Chris Thomlin Amazing grace.. how sweet the sound. The guy just didn’t know I was walking with my Jesus. Then it was a bit distracting when I had to cross the bridge and let me tell you something had died and stayed there in that river water.. STINKY! I was reminded how stinky our sins are as I walked with Jesus over that stinky bridge.! Then came the cloud of diseal fuel from the buses… then the bus splashing water on me.. but regardless I had me a good old walk with Jesus! Don’t you love that our Jesus takes the time to walk with us and talk with us!
Ok I need my prayer warriors to kick into serious gear abour our visa sitation. It’s so complicated to write here and try to explain but the basic is we are only allowed 5 months a year period on tourist visa in nepal then you have to get another visa. Last yaer was fine because I was only here five months. My five months are almost up… June is the deadline. We have been working on trying to get an NGO visa for our orphanage and our Bible college. The problem is we have to turn these visas in as a group.. and the governement has to approve. (keep in mind the political situation here right now) And keep in mind that my passport was stolen and has not come in yet because of elections the offices have been closed and it was hard to get a police report.. so no passport right now and my nepalee visa has been expired 3 weeks now since I cold not renew it this month due to the passport thing (sorry are you confused yet?) all this to say something must happen soon. If I do not have this visa by May 6th then I must purchase an exit ticket out of the country to get my June visa and then in June leave the country and be unable to come back until January of next year. Pretty big sitation huh? I have been studying about faith and I know God just wants to stretch it and let me have the oppertunity to see him BE BIG! So I am going to trust but please pray. I need my passport ASAP and I need the government to approve our new visa requests! Thank you so much! I am so glad to know that my God is in control!
Oh yeah– I am curious who actual reads this beside the 3 people that always comments. If you read it can you just leave a little comment this time. I’m just curious! 🙂
ok.. going to go check on my cake now! yummmm
