Chara Lyndon – Youth With A Mission
Our thoughts and prayers are with Chara Lyndon as she co-leads a team of 9 to Nepal. The team left September 8, and are due back to the States November 3rd. From Chara:
We have had to recently change the main focus in Tikapur from teach- ing English to disaster relief. Tikapur was heavily damaged in the Monsoon flooding. Many people have lost lives and everything they owned it wasn’t much but it is gone. We will now be going to this area to do restoration and rebuilding. We will be bringing hope: our knowledge and understanding of our source of hope and love through God. This
is going to be important because YWAM Madison has been to this area several times and it is ripe for the harvest. We are anticipating big things here as God has been moving in big ways throughout Nepal. We are excited for all God is going to be doing in this country in and through us.
Thanks for all your support, prayer, and love, Chara
