Albella: Update 2

We'd been hoping to publish updates daily but due to sporadic internet access this plan was thwarted - like the mozzies in our rooms!  

Day one in the big Albella house.  Our day was started with the children singing a Nepali song to us as they waited for class to start, followed by lots of games.

After a night in accommodation (that was far beyond our hopes) we started our day in prayer that we might really connect with the children and help them encounter Jesus.  

A favourite activity was the strawberry lace challenge.  In this game you hang a strawberry lace from your mouth and race to eat it all without using your hands - it's surprisingly tough.  We got Heshron, Alan and Paul to have a go, with Paul coming out on top (even though Heshron had all the student cheering his name at the top of their lungs).  The boys all had a go and much fun was had.

Later in the evening we played volleyball and card games with the older boys before joining in with their Bible study.  They sang some Nepali songs before treating us to some in English which they'd learnt.  Lots of the boys were taking little glances round to excitedly see if we were joining in.  

Day two was all about seeing, and specifically, learning about the Light of the World.  We played lots of light themed games and made lanterns that the children took back with them to their dorms.

Finally in the evening Chris had a wonderful opportunity to share the Gospel with the older boys and we had a fantastic time of worship.  

We would love prayer for continued good health, energy and the strengthening of relationship with the teachers and boys.
