Some local folks got to experience a once in a lifetime mission trip to the other side of the world recently, when they visited the country of Nepal.

Among those who made the trek were Beverly and Duane Dinnel, of Wauneta, as well as former Wauneta-Palisade students Brittnae and Breann Maris.

The group visited former Wauneta resident Doyl Flaming, who currently lives in Nepal and works for Oversees Missions.

Visiting Hindu and Buddhist temples, sharing the gospel with the homeless and helping out at hospitals and schools were just a few of the adventures taken by those in the travelling group.

After spending three days in Katmandu, the group took a 21-hour van ride to the village of Dadeldhura, where they built a bathroom at a church. They also visited a national park, and rode elephants.

Breann Maris called the experience “eye-opening.”

Members of the travelling group will be sharing stories about their trip to Nepal at Hamlet Union Church this Sunday at 10 a.m. MT/11 a.m. CT. Everyone is welcome to attend.
