Many of you will recall Missionary Katherine Parker’s visit with us last year as she shared what it’s like serving with the Health Team of the United Mission to Nepal. She shared in a recent email that she’s spending most of her time in Rukum, a remote district in mid-west Nepal. If you’re not sure exactly where that is, she says that it takes 18-24 hours of driving from Kathmandu to reach Musikot, the district headquarters. Following that, it takes several additional hours by jeep and walking to reach most of her working villages.
Most of her current work is assisting ongoing recovery efforts after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal in April, 2015. But her biggest news was that, after almost 20 years, local elections were again taking place in Nepal. The second round of elections took place on June 28th, just several weeks ago. She asks us to be in prayer that these newly reinstated local elections will be a peaceful and transparent process.
