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:

in the area we lived


walking through one of the streets


on a bridge to another village


in the area we lived


on the street I lived


baby owl being held by one of our friends we made there


many of the kids we lived with for the month


Solimae, who would kiss me good bye, whenever I’d leave the building



have I mentioned the gorgeous views where I lived?


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!
