Journeying In The Company Of The Holy Spirit

Machhapuchhre Mountain
Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:16-17

Strengthen yourselves so that you will live here on earth doing what God wants, not the evil things people want. 1 Peter 4:2

Our offering to God is this: We are the sweet smell of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are being lost. 2 Corinthians 2:15

You will never face the future without God's help. You have a travel companion.

When you place your faith in Christ, Christ places his Spirit before, behind, and within you. Not a strange spirit, but the same Spirit: the parakletos. As Jesus sends you into new seasons, he sends his counselor to go with you.

God never sends you out alone. Are you on the eve of change? Do you find yourself looking into a new chapter? Is the foliage of your world showing signs of a new season? Heaven's message for you is clear: when everything else changes, God's presence never does. You journey in the company of the Holy Spirit.

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name you are Mine.

Isaiah 43:1

As many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." Romans 8:14-15

Not much happened yesterday and we didn't take any pictures! Sorry! We spent the afternoon visiting with the Trek's new aunties :) He did much better over there today. We believe and are trusting God is going to put a peace in his little heart about staying with them until the appointed time for him to come home. We know he'll be loved by all the girls there!

Right now it's something like 12 noon over here on Thursday and I'm hanging out in the hotel with Trek. He had another bath which he HATES!!! He cried so hard he fell asleep and he's been sleeping ever since. One of our Christian connections picked Mike up on his motorcycle and took him shopping for 50+ coats, shoes, blankets, etc. They went to Themal (sp?) looking for better quality items and to hopefully find a deal. Please pray the Lord blesses their efforts and keeps him safe on these crazy streets!

We are planning to go visit the home later this afternoon with some other Christian friends we have made. I'm expecting a wonderful evening of fellowship!

Please continue to pray the the Lords perfect will to be done.

Blessings from Nepal!
I'm back. Mike just made it back safely from his shopping adventure. Sounds like he found some good stuff and good deals. I found a couple new pictures on the camera so here they are...

So, yeah he loves ripping paper :)
