In the Shadow of EverestBook - 2011
On the verge of retirement, Robert Ove was struck by an advertisement in the Lutheran Magazine for a volunteer mission trip to Kathmandu, Nepal-a valley in the shadow of Mt. Everest. His wife, Pat, agreed to join him in this yearlong adventure. Their time in Nepal changed their lives. They came to love the Nepalese and became lovingly known as Abba and Ama (Father and Mother). They now encourage everyone to take at least a short-term mission trip at some point, but not without proper advice on what to expect. Though every country and culture is different, Robert's personal experience in Nepal offers invaluable information for future missionaries on dealing with language barriers, exotic foods, foreign transportation, foreign politics, religious customs, disease and contamination, adverse living conditions, and religious intolerance. Some struggles span continents; others are more localized. Join Robert as he encourages and forewarns you. Discover the miracles that abound In the Shadow of Everest despite, or perhaps in light of, the seeming misfortunes that have befallen the inhabitants. See what God can do if you obey his leading, even when you think your future is on the golf course.
