    I'll have Randy give a more detailed explanation soon enough for Mission #1 accomplished. David continues to teach at NNPLI. And tomorrow the guys journey to Hetauda Bezar, Nepal some 5 hours outside Kathmandu to work with our second host, Darshan. Stay tuned....

  • Wednesday. Feels like we have been here a lot longer! This morning started with an unhappy tummy and a dull headache. Finally the sun come out! Started feeling much better! That's what we needed after two days of rain and clouds. Finished assembling acoustic panels. Now we are installing them.

Working with Sam Hamilton, (taking pictures) and Bikash, a 20ish talented singer, rapper, programmer and young engineer. Tomorrow we will finish installing panels on the front wall, check out how the room sounds and check their...

  • Nepal Update – Monday October 13th This is the first time I’ve been on a laptop and able to write up a longer update post. Thank you for praying for our travel.
