The team from Connor Diocese, currently in Nepal, have attended church in a Leprosy colony. They trekked from Kathmandu into the countryside to reach the church, crossing a terrifying suspension foot bridge with great trepidation, only to witness an older man on a motorbike following them across ‘at a good speed!’
The people, sights and sounds of Nepal, and the atmosphere during worship at the church in the Leprosy colony, are brought to life by Alan Robinson, a parishioner of St Patrick’s, Coleraine, in his second blog on the CMS Ireland website.
This trip, by the Rev Bill Boyce, Nevin Kidd, Eleanor Boyce, Peter Kirch (all St Brigid’s, Glengormley) and Canon John McCammon and Alan, both from St Patrick’s, Coleraine, is facilitated by CMSI.
Alan also talks about Maoist strikes which are impacting on some aspects of the team’s programme in Nepal, and reflects on restaurants and rush hour in Kathmandu!
