Here are some recent film and shots I got from a recent trip to the ocean.
The last 5 days of the trek all blurred in to what felt long one incredibly long day. Day 10 we began hiking back to Ghola where the jeeps had dropped us off days before and now where they would pick us up and get us one step closer to heading back to the U.S. We hiked a total of 10 miles/9 hours through some pretty rough, slick jungle and mountain ranges….
Day 9 of the trek began to feel more like the middle part of it all even though we were already past the halfway point. By now you almost felt apart of Nepal, like you could live there and be okay. At least that’s how I felt. On day 9 we woke up to rain and a beautiful view of mist covered mountains…
A beautiful wedding in the ocean countryside….
Day 8 was another tough day of hiking but also very rewarding in the end because on day 8 we finally reached Chepwa, which is where we would stay for the next day and minister to the villagers there at the church they had built. We woke up at 4am, packed up, and headed up the mountain in pitch black darkness…
Day 7 of the Nepal trek was probably one of the most challenging days of the trip, both physically and mentally. We started out on our upward journey in the himalayas towards Chepwa….
Day 6 was the first day where we began our “off the grid” part of the trek. The first half of the day was spent pilled up in a jeep for almost 9 hours straight and while that sounds okay for the most part, this wasn’t your average, casual jeep ride. If you have ever been on the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland or have gone off roading
Day 3 and 4 of the Nepal trek consisted of finally getting somewhat accustomed to all of the crazy driving and atmosphere that goes on in Kathmandu. On our 3rd day we continued to explore the city, walked to a local school, spent the day trying food,
Last month I had the incredible opportunity to go on a mission’s trek with my church, Grove Community Church. This trek was specifically geared for those who enjoy hiking and being outside while also having a passion to serve others and show the light God shines through all of us.
Beautiful warm fall tones while walking through the forest. Looking forward to Josh and Sarai’s wedding day in the coming year!
