Sunday In Nepal

I don't have a lot of time to journal this morning because this is our last full day here and there is lots to be done.

Yesterday we pretty much hung out with the girls at the house. Which every day Trek does better and better. Praising the Lord for that. We took him, Maya and another baby from the orphanage to see the doctor. Trek HATED the doctor. I thought she was really nice and was excellent with the kids, but he would tell you different. She said his lungs were clear, no ear infection and he is tiny for his age, but with good food he'll gain quickly. He's been malnourished. He weights 17.6 lbs and is 31 inches short :). Maya looks in good health too! He and Maya will be put on de-worm meds in a few days. Sounds like about all the children that come from an orphanage get them from the water.

The baby we took, we thought might have CP. She's 18 months and has never stood. Her head is the normal size for an 18 month old, but her body is the size of a 6-7 month old. The doctor said it was from not eating enough. She said unless they start feeding her more or she can be moved to a different home or someone adopts her.....
So be praying for her!

Oh yeah, we also visited some ancient place where the King lived like a couple hundred years ago. It was neat to see, but so sad....there are so many people that come here and worship gods/idols. I was able to share with Sumitra that it did break my heart because those idols and gods can't help them. I shared with her that there is only ONE LIVING GOD....JESUS! They think the cows are gods.....

He's the God of this City, Country!

Here are some pictures from our day.
