God's Power

For the past few days a wonderful (and brisk) breeze has blown into the Kathmandu Valley helping to clear out all the smog and dirt that has been covering the city for the past few weeks. It was getting pretty depressing and I was seriously wondering how it was going to affect our lungs and health. Today, I took these pictures from on top of our roof. The first picture is of the Ganesh Himal Mountains to the northwest of the city.
I'm not sure of the name of these mountains but they lie northeast of the city and you can see how the wind is just whipping up there!

These pictures remind me of how awesome and powerful our God is. Just today the electric company had to increase our load-shedding (cutting our electricity) to 16 hours a day. We have 8 hours off, 4 hours on, 8 hours off, and then 4 hours on. So in church today this was the big topic of discussion for everyone. Even during "Children's Church" the topic was "load-shedding". The speaker put up on the screen the load-shedding schedule and talked about the different sections of town and who had electricity when. Then he put up another schedule, "God's load-shedding" schedule. It was completely blank! He then asked the children when God's power was out for the different parts of town and then for the rest of the world. "NEVER!" was the unanimous answer each child answered. God never needs a break! He is always working and all you have to do is just look around and you can see His awesomeness being displayed continuously; just like these mountains that tower over the Kathmandu Valley and the wind that is blowing the snow off of the tops.
