His saints in Nepal
all in the most precious name of our lord and savior Jesus Christ! Itís
been a while since I wrote last, not that I donít want to but because of
activities and the way things turned out for me here; February happened
to be the most unpredictable month ever while here in Nepal.
On the first week of the month, we
learnt that continuous electricity supplies that we have been taking for
granted will be a thing of the past; till date we are still having 8
hours load shedding (power cut) daily, and as Iím writing this report on
a laptop Iím using candle light to be able to see what I type. Moreover,
the Madhesis people liberation front declared a strike the whole Terai
region, the part of Nepal bordering India, which left the whole county
without fuel or gasoline throughout the month of February. The only way
petrol products could be brought to Kathmandu from India was by
declaring curfews in those regions, and this allowed a few tankers
carrying petrol products to reach the capital. Till date cars, buses and
motorbikes are still cueing at petrol/gas stations for hours just for 10
liters of petrol/gasoline (2 gallon).
Due to all this I ended up cycling
between our two offices and church, which left me with some problem in
the knee and back now. I still have lower back pain and trouble with my
ankle till date, pray for me for healing in these two areas. Meanwhile
our programs are still running, and we thank God for your support and
donations that help us keeping this project going.
Tuesday is the day for our feeding
program for street kids. The women education project is as strong as
ever; over 100 women attend classes on a regular basis.
Pray for the
women, their teachers and our other staff too.
Last week we had medical check-up
and treatment session for the women, and educated them on womenís health
We found that
some were having either high or low B.P, one is pregnant without knowing,
as well as other health related issues that we trust God for their
continue to monitor their health on a regular basis from now on. Beside
that, we are having another health check-up for the street kids on Good
Friday 21st March 2008, where we will be focusing on their
personal hygiene too.
Pray that we will find more health
personnel willing help out and volunteers to assist in our different
