this one’s for Nepal

I’ve been meaning to write and share some stories about how things are going for me here in Korea.

But instead, today, I think I am briefly going to talk about Nepal.
If you haven’t heard, there was a large (7.8 magnitude) earthquake near the capital of Kathmandu yesterday (Sunday) about 5 minutes before noon [local Nepal time].

For me personally, Nepal does not make my list of the top five countries I have been to.
But, hearing this news is devastating, and it brings back memories of my time there [May 2011] and the people I was with.
I wonder if everyone from the orphanage is all right.
I can’t even imagine what they are all going through in this aftermath.
While there, we stayed in Kathmandu, in an area called Khokana Dobato.

Here are just a few pictures from my time in Nepal:

the country truly has beauty, in nature and in people

 

Please join me in lifting up the people I was with, and all those that have been effected by this earthquake.

 

much love!
