me and my teammate leah in nepal
some of my precious missionary family
Beautiful nepalese ladies
I love it when God says Go..
God has opened a door for me and said Go
And I was crazy enough to say YES!
And I can’t wait to share it with you– my precious bloggy family
In case you did not know .. I was blessed to spend the years 2007-2009 living as a missionary in Kathmandu Nepal. I am often asked, how is Nepal. Well just take America, think the complete opposite, and thats nepal! Before leaving everything behind to be a career missionary ( I had planned to live and die in nepal) I thought missionaries were SUPER heros that must be perfect, spiritual ALL the time, and have a special extra line to God. They were the SPECIAL ONES.. the called out ones.. therefore they might as well have a cape that says SUPERWOMAN FOR JESUS (or SUPERMAN). Well imagine my dismay when I got to nepal and realized wait.. we are.. I am.. not called to be superwoman for Jesus, can NEVER be spiritual and perfect all the time and we sin. I realized God didnt need me, but He wanted me (that’s a story for another time, another place). Anyways– God called me to leave nepal after 2 years to persue ministering in not just one place, but in many. I felt an intense burden for missionaries- imagine leaving everyone you know and love behind, all your comforts, trying to learn a new language, life ect– all while serving on the front lines of spiritual battle. It’s an incredible joy.. but whew. it can get tiring. So I have a HUGE passion to go and minister to missionaries and provide counsel and refreshment from God’s word. Retreats are so readily available here– every weekend if you wanted. .. on the mission field recieving spiritual nurishment while providing spiritual nurishment is NECESSARY yet often lacking.
I am always looking to GO when God says.
Last week I got a call where God says Go
My teammate called from Nepal and asked me to consider coming
Oct 28-November 8th and
Being the keynote speaker/counselor for a retreat
called Sabbath Rest
Provided for missionaries and NGO’s that work with
God said Go and I said YES! glory! I know what it’s like to serve God in the very spiritually dark country of Nepal and if I can go encourage and refresh those special servants of God . Now there is the tiny detail of 2,000 dollars needed within the next 2 weeks to get the plane ticket.
I was crazy enough to say YES..
now can I ask you to pray about saying YES to being apart. Would you NUMBER ONE please pray for me and for this retreat.. that God would provide the missionaries Sabbath Rest
and would you pray about helping me with this financial need.
if everyone gave a little
God multiplies BIG

As for my 1,000 gifts thank-you list for Monday.. I just have to say my big one is that God laid this oppertunity in my lap to go back to a place I love and minister to a people I love
using the gifts I love- speaking and teaching God’s word
When has God said Go to you and you said YES and were blessed? share with me 🙂
