Canyon Hills Team Visits Village Church

Once again we had the great privilege of hosting a team from Canyon Hills Community Church in Bothell, Washington. Each year the church sends a team to encourage us and give their members an opportunity to see and participate in the ministry here in Nepal. One of the highlights of their time with us was our trip to the jungle near the India border to visit one of our village churches.

On the hike in to the church we met members of the church and had a baptism in the river. It was a beautiful Jurrasic Park-type setting. There were eight boys and one woman baptized.
