This past fall I went to Nepal with a team of 4 to visit some of the most remote places in the world. Our goal was to document and share (film still in post production) the gospel of Jesus and how it is reaching the far ends of the earth. We went to some of the most remote villages in Nepal. Just a mile from the border of China (formerly Tibet) and at the base of the Himalayas, we stayed in villages on the steep hillsides of one of the most beautiful places in the world. The people we encountered there were Tibetan refugees living the most simple lives. They were extremely poor, and were hurt badly by the earthquake that hit the Himalayas just 6 months prior to our arrival. Their knowledge of our Savior was limited by a simple lack of resources and information for Christians in a predominantly Hindu country, but their faith was strong and their community even stronger. It was an eye opening experience for so many reasons.
I'll finish with the best explanation I can of the size of the Himalayas and their beauty. The pictures were all taken on my phone and don't give the scale of these mountains proper justice. One morning as we sat in the village at 7,500 ft elevation, we looked across the valley to see the next layer of mountains towering at 14,000 ft, behind them were even taller peaks at 26,000 ft. It was an unbelievable sight.
Enjoy some photos!
