World Peace Pagoda | Pokhara | 12.26.2012 [00:45]
the day after Christmas, we hiked up to the World Peace Stupa/Pagoda that overlooks all of Lakeside in Pokhara, Nepal. Our purpose was simply to simply to enthrone Jesus from the high places in Nepal! It was so awesome and people were by and large really open for conversation and prayer. There were a couple of rad healings (a crippled man's leg grew out by a lot outside the temple gates and he got up and walked, a guy's back got healed and he encountered the peace of Jesus and took a Nepali bible, and a lady's knee completely clicked back into place). People were drawn to us just sitting around singing and ministering to the heart of God, and SO MANY wanted Jesus. But as we're finding to be the norm here, Hinduism and Buddhism are cultural deals - one's family and entire social structure are swirled into those two religions. So if someone were to receive Jesus, especially as a woman (it's an intense patriarchal society here), that person would lose pretty much everything. And yet they gain EVERYTHING! So totes be praying for those we've talked to that are pondering life with Christ - that they would count the cost and say YES :)

Bhaktapur - Nepal's Medieval Capital in Kathmandu Valley [06:12]
The medieval city of Bhaktapur, also known as Khwopa and as the City of Devotees, is one of three former capital cities in the Kathmandu Valley. It is an hour drive from downtown Kathmandu and a living gem of Hindu temples, pagodas, palaces and ancient monuments, some dating back to the 16th century. Its gem is its Durbar Square—a World Heritage site listed by the UNESCO. Strewn with unique palaces, temples and monasteries best admired for their exquisite artworks in wood, metal and stone, the palatial enclave has bewitched pilgrims and travelers for centuries. It's a beautiful historic city, but the charm to me was its wonderful people - captured at work, at play and at rest. Hope you like my impressions.
