I'm finally starting to feel a little more adjusted to the time difference and feeling more normal instead of exhausted all day long.
The first couple days in Kathmandu were interesting because it allowed me to see a little bit of Nepali culture. I did take Nepali lessons for 1.5 hours, but not sure how much that really helped =)
The rest of my time allowed for me to get to know some of the missionaries here, shop for some food items to bring with me, and attend a conference for rural healthcare workers. The day that I was there they were learning things like suturing, ortho casting, neonatal resuscutation, eye emergencies, etc . . ., it was fun to see over 100 Nepali rural healthcare workers getting this training!!!

I've met some great people and right now at the hospital there is a fun group of people to work with!
Church here meets on Saturdays, so my work week is really Sunday - Friday. That will take some getting use to! I'll be spending time in the hospital as well as doing some community work. I don't really know what each day will hold, but I'm excited for how God will orchastrate all those details!!! Later this week we'll be heading to some villages - more about that later!
Here is a little glimpse of the scenery:

Thankfully internet has been working good since I've been here, allowing for me to blog and post photos =)
Thanks for your prayers!!! I appreciate continued prayers for knowing how to best spend my time while here and how to best serve others.
