It’s 3:00am in Kathmandu, Nepal. Jet lag has forced me awake. I’ve been here for less than 24 hours and already I’m trying to process everything I’ve seen. First, a bit of background. My good friends Adam, Mark, and Dathan and I are visiting some Nepalese pastor-friends and seeing the...
In the unrelenting stream of life, the significance of each event, each person, each thing often goes unappreciated.
