With a few scratches, bruises and leech bites we made it back to Kathmandu. The trekking took it’s toll on most everyone but we are all still in high spirits and recovering physically. Thanks be to the Lord who constantly reminded us and myself that He made us stronger than we think we are.
We made some great friends along the way and were able to encourage some fellow brothers and sisters and speak to some other people from India through a game of ultimate frisbee on a basketball court. Our guides and porters are some amazing people and it was a blessing trekking the whole way with them and getting to know them along with learning some Nepali talking back and forth with them. We shared a lot of laughs and it was hard watching them go but we know that we have a place in their hearts and they have also have one in ours.
We spent a day and a half at Baghmara Wildlife Resort. The whole place sort of reminded us of the first Jurassic Park movie, which was pretty cool. We rode in a canoe in crocodile infested waters and then we walked through some jungle seeing some deer, monkeys and rhinoceros footprints but no rhino’s. We then went to the elephant breeding center and after that we managed to spot a rhino front afar. After lunch we hopped on some Elephants and took a ride, seeing some other animals, like a wild boar and some regular deer and a snake as well. We finished the day with some swimming and some napping and then some good supper.
Today we are resting in Kathmandu and will be going to help out in a school all day tomorrow(Monday). We are very excited for that and then on Tuesday we will do a few things and then ready up for some flying.
Thank you for your prayers and please continue to send them up for Nepal. Love Tyson, Ian, Richelle, Katy, Katrina and Stephanie.
