Cary called me at 7:30 this morning (Monday) to let me know that they had all made it to Kathmandu earlier in the day and had eaten lunch with the pastors. Funny thing happened...their luggage did not make it there (0 out of 12 bags)!! Some of us at Celebration have heard that ol' song and dance before. Wasn't it just last year those same words were ringing out from Kenya! He said they bought a change of clothes and were thinking of skipping dinner and going to bed. Since they left Dallas airport Saturday they had only slept about 3 hours or so in the last 48 hours. He also informed me that the computers at the hotel are down and that they will have to find time and an internet cafe to update or email.
Steve called me about 8:30 p.m. He said they got a good nights sleep and were heading to the conference. He also told me that it is $2 per minute, so he didn't say much more. Stormie turn your phone on!!
Hopefully they will receive their luggage (children's sweaters, coloring books, crayons, VBS supplies, Cary's entire dress clothes wardrobe including his brand new suit and shoes!) soon.
Remember they are 12 hours ahead of us, so when you wake up they are going to bed - pray for them to sleep well, when you go to bed they are getting up - pray that the Lord would use them to encourage and build up the body of believers in Nepal and to have clarity of mind while teaching
