What Happened To Friday?

Strangely, I have no idea. Right now it's Sunday morning and yesterday it was Trek's second birthday. We feel blessed to have been able to celebrate with him, and we believe he'll be home for his third! We started our day with breakfast here at the hotel and then headed over to the PUMA home and went to church with them. Again we were blessed to worship with them. Doug was asked to speak about 5 minutes before they got there, so it was a blessing having him share. We understood everything...cause it was in English! Doug & Jen are adopting M and she will be staying with Trek until the visas are issued.

After church we headed back to the house and had tuna sandwiches and cheese. Then it was time for the birthday party! Mike and Mary and two of the girls went to pick up 30 pizza's and a cake to feed 80! Mary opened in prayer, praying for the Doug & Jen and Mike & I and our little ones that we have to leave here for a season. She asked all the children/teens to keep us in prayer and to set a good example for them :) Each child was able to have two slices of pizza..... this is why we had lunch first. After we ate and cleaned up from the pizza the children put on a presentation for us. Oh my. It was beautiful. They sang several songs in English, had two special solos, and did a cardboard testimony. I don't think there was a dry eye in that room.
I will do my best to somehow upload videos to share. I'll get Mike on that.

After we finished with the presentation the kids sang Happy Birthday to Trek and we had cake. It was YUMMY! They had a German bakery make it. Yummo! Trek LOVED it!!

In all we had a wonderful, blessed day. One we will never forget. We took lots of video and pictures so I'll be done typing and just share pictures (we'll work on videos. If we're friends on facebook some will be there).

And therefore will the Lord wait, that He may be gracious unto you, and therefore will He be exalted, that He may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is God of judgment: blessed are all that wait for Him. Isaiah 30:18
We will wait. We will pray. We will have faith. We will believe. We will have hope.
We will have peace. We will do all these things with the help of the Holy Spirit.

This is the building that PUMA is either renting or has purchased. It is being used for church services and for Pastors that come to Nepal to teach the ministers here. I think I heard someone say they might start a Bible college here as well. They are still working on finishing it. Maybe CC Bangor should send a team here to help :) I know Mike would come!

Philip, Padam, M, a local chicken farmer and of course Trek.
