I flew out of Kona, HI April 29 by myself to head towards Kathmandu where I would meet my team. Upon arriving to Nepal I was greeted by a lot of interesting smells and a friend who took a look at my guitar and two bags and said "yeah, that'll work." I realized what he meant by that as we walked up to his motorcycle! We wedged my guitar in between us and I wore one backpack while he wore the other and we went on to the guest house that I was staying at. This was my first introduction to Nepal! Since then we have had worship and prayer times and gone out and preached the gospel and prayed for people. Prayer & Missions in action at it's finest! One of my favorite stories here so far has been one day where we had a prayer set and worship time in the morning then went and grabbed lunch and went to the Market place to go preach and pray for people. Our translator asked me once we got there what we were wanting to do. I told him probably just pray for people and tell them the gospel. We looked around and saw one guy leaning against a wall and he just had no emotion in his face. So I said "what about him?" We went up to the guy and prayed for him and then began to tell him the gospel. Once we finished we asked him if he wanted to know this God through Jesus. He answered yes. If I am being honest I was caught off guard. I am so used to an appeal or an attempt at arguing from the other person that I wasn't expecting such a willing response. So I said "No no no do you want to surrender your WHOLE life to Jesus?" and he said yes! I just paused in disbelief and looked at m friend who was translating (he was a new Christian so he was looking with the same disbelief as me!) We both starting laughing and said we should probably pray so we led the guy through the sinners prayer and then invited him to the local church that is there! It was a privilege to get to be apart of this guys journey of surrendering to Jesus. The look in his eyes as I began to tell him about Jesus' sacrifice was priceless! Thank you for all who have sown into this trip. Whether through prayer or finances you all share in this victory too!
