Our Nepal Visit- Seema
Our gardener's wife is Amreeta who accepted Lord Jesus as her saviour after coming to Mussoorie, and eversince she would share about the enormous need to go her village and share the good news with her family and villagers. So we kept this in our prayer for a long time, and in His time we went to Jhapti, a small village in Nepal. From mussoorie we four ladies started this journey on the 1st day of this year, with a lot of excitement and uncertainties.
It takes about 36 hours to reach that village from Mussoorie. We had taken a bus, which was the worst conditioned one I had ever traveled in my life. The roads were bumpy. We took the bus from Haridwar to Katarnia which is Indo-Nepal border,crossed a river in a boat and had to walk for about two and half hour to enter Nepal. In one place Amreeta's village people had come to receive us with cycles, so riding bi-cycles for two hours we arrived at Jhapti.
When we reached there, we found out that there is no food, so now it was cooking time after such a long and hard journey. We were starving and the place was very poverty stricken no shops to buy food.
But the next seven days of our staying were amazing, we could witness to many people and pray for the sick. It is such a joy for us to be able to share the good news with these people. May the Lord bring His kingdom into the lives of these people.
With much love
