After riding 11 hours on what felt like a mechanical bull (think rough mountain roads, deep potholes and creek crossings, and hitting your head 5 times on either the roof or side window), we arrived in Beni, Nepal, beat up but ready for the next stop on our adventure.
We were were up early, and made our way to the Darshan Christian Church in Beni for seven hours of worship, prayer, testimonies, and teaching. The entire team either taught the Bible, or shared how Jesus has made a real difference in their lives, to over seventy Nepali pastors, leaders, and believers.
We were also able to give seventy books (translated into Nepali and given by The Gospel Coalition International free of charge) to pastors and future leaders. Some of the titles given were “50 Reasons Jesus Came to Die” and “Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ,” written by John Piper.
It was a great day spending precious time encouraging and being encouraged by Nepali believers, and the entire team did a great job!!
Tomorrow, we are setting off at 6am to take another “8 second bull ride” to a town further north called Kagbeni (rougher roads and a tougher bull), to donate brand new Giant mountain bikes to help some Nepalese start a business that will be owned and operated by Nepalese to help the people of Nepal.
