Everest Basecamp

Everest Basecamp

We are blessed to be going with pastor Chhiring Sherpa to Everest Basecamp. We will Lord willing, have the opportunity to build relationships with the people of that rejoin and pray. Our hope is to be able to return in the off season and spend more time with the people in the Khumbu rejoin. Please pray for us to have a safe and successful trip. The altitude at Basecamp is 17,598 feet. This is the highest we have been before, so praying we do well. Grateful to pastor Chhiring for inviting us to join him on this trip.

Girls Hostel

It is a joy and honor to spend time investing with these at-risk children. The work that pastor Narbu and the house mother are doing is amazing! We spend 2-3 days week with the girls. Now they are helping us learn Nepali.

House of Hope Church

We were welcomed back into our family at the House of Hope Church, Lalitpur. It was a family reunion of sorts. We are blessed to be back in the fold, and I’m honored to be joined into their pastoral team.

Hello Nepal

Thanks for your prayers. We left the United States on September 13th and arrived in Kathmandu on September 15. Our dear friends picked us up from the airport and spent the rest of the day helping us get some necessities and get settled into our flat. They did so much work to make our apartment feel like a home! We have been welcomed and feel very blessed.

We are learning Nepali and being welcomed into the community. Thanks again for your continued prayer and support.
