Second Home

This is our second home, however, I’m sure that we stick out like a sore thumb. That is a good conversation starter for those curious about who we are and why we are here. Some of them just want to practice their English. Others are hoping that we might have money or connections that may get them closer to their dream of going to America. To most, America, is the promised land and it is a wonderful place to live. I am thankful that we can get on a plane and fly back on a fixed date. A heated home with a hot shower on command sounds pretty good right now! Truly, there is danger and hardship anywhere you happen to be on this planet. Our family is here, however as an ambassador of a different kingdom, the Kingdom of God. This eternal kingdom is without borders. It is any heart that Jesus has made new, clean and pure. One of my most thrilling moments (way more than seeing Everest), was when a dear sister who had just become a believer proclaimed “You are ambassadors!!” How right she was! It is also sobering to know that this is both our privilege and our responsibility.   “We are therefore Christ’s  ambassadors, as though God was making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” 2Corinthians 5:20. All believers are commissioned with this tremendous task wherever our paths may lead. The good news that we have to proclaim is that through the sacrifice of Jesus, His own body & blood, we may have forgiveness of our sin.  On a daily basis I am enjoying His cleansing and forgiveness as His child.

    You’ve seen Everest? I’m surprised.

      Yes. We went to the “Club Himalaya” at Nargakot. The view was incredible. You could see all the way from Fishtail in the west to Everest in the east and everything in between! It was truly awesome!
