Team Nepal was able to get a short update of their time in Kathmandu before heading out on a six week trek. Unfortunately there will not be much communication from this point on because the area they'll be is extremely remote. [/fusion_alert] We have now been in Nepal for a few weeks now, and starting to settle in. We are getting used to the crazy traffic, and thankfully we have had no accidents yet. The food is amazing in the city, and the team loves to eat tikka masala multiple times a week.

Last week we spent three days at a youth center here in Kathmandu. The nurse on our team taught first aid, and we had lessons in music, arts and photography. Eventually we had an opportunity to share the gospel with the youth. We were informed that they haven’t heard the gospel in it's fulness, or ever had it explained to them. Each day we showed another part of the gospel through skits, and then we had small groups afterwards where the kids could ask questions. We had amazing conversations, and it was really clear that this was not a story they had heard before. Kathmandu is very westernized, especially among the youth, yet there are still unreached people here.

Right now the team is getting ready for a six week hiking trip through the himalayas in northern Nepal. God is showing us more of himself as we're in this time of preparation. The hardest challenge will be physically as most of the team has never experienced trekking on this caliber, yet we have to remind ourselves that God is greater than any challenge we will face. We will be taking buses and jeeps up to Dolpa in the north, a two days drive through rough and muddy dirt roads. It's not going to be the most pleasant, but we are willing to do whatever it takes to reach those who've never heard the Gospel before. Our team is excited and ready to overcome the challenges, as we focus on the amazing things God is going to do in the mountains!  We are going to go to villages that are truly unreached, and we are going to see God reveal his glory through these amazing people we are going to meet. Even with no wifi, this team is pumped to see God’s glory![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
