1st Day of December … Focus=3 GHNI/TCD Reports …

This 1st Day of December, I’d like us to focus on three TCD/GHNI reports hot off the press, just received across my desk for editing. We edit in a limited fashion, so as to retain some of the smell/flavor/touch in reporting, that goes missing if overly edited. These are all from Nepal and so very encouraging in our labors there!

Story Update:Many people in the community, have raised income but couldn’t save from their income. I realized that earning and saving should go together. When any emergency situation occurs, they have to be prepared and must have some savings. They need safety. So saving is very important. This month, I have taught TCD lessons about saving money. I encouraged people to save monthly according to their family income. When community people heard this, they became excited about it and agreed to save for their future. Community people realized that no one can make a lot of money at any one time, but if they continue saving they can make a large amount. So by this TCD teaching I hope, community people are forced to start saving for their future. Nowadays, many people in the community are suffering from many kinds of health problems. Community people need to be taught about community health, family health care, and personal health care. I taught them to be aware of their daily food, drinking water, and eating habits. I advised them to go to the clinic from time to time and check their health. I have taught women groups about vaccines that they should take during their pregnancy and having children. Still, people have great money expectations from GHNI. This month I clearly told them GHNI can’t give money but have powerful teaching about community development. And taught them how to find and use so many local resources. How and where to use them? How important is it to invest their local resources? I taught people to try to find a local resource that may go longer than any money GHNI might give them. The community can form committees and develop projects and go to the local government for resources. This teaching helped community people to come out from their traditional mindset and helped them to think differently about owning their futures. SUCCESS STORY This is the story of Smriti Praja, who lives in Ramantar village. She started a beekeeping business. Now has raised a good family income. Earlier she was jobless and joined TCD. Later she was well-trained in TCD and provided some seed money. During the three years period, there is good progress. Now she has 35 bee boxes and has good income sources. Now she is very happy because she became able to raise a good family income source and could help her family. For this success, she wants to give thanks to the TCD committee and GHNI.

Story Update:I spent a lot of time visiting families in the village. People are very much encouraged in income generation. Poultry farming is one of the best income generation work for this village. And also it is easier to start. This month, I taught them how to build poultry houses and their maintenance. I taught them about how to care for chickens, feed them, and give them vaccines. This month, four families started poultry as their family business. This is so encouraging! We could do it in coordination with our TCD/GHNI committee, and with the help of the local government. This was so helpful for the community people. They were very much inspired to involve in TCD. I also taught people about how to be safe from Dengue(Dengue viruses are spread to people through the bite of an infected Aedes species (Ae. aegypti or Ae. albopictus) mosquito. ) . Many people have suffered from Dengue in the community. This month I visited the cluster of Luina village and followed up on the income generation work there. Here in Luina village, I taught people about how they can raise income by doing Beekeeping. Mr. Lapta Man Praja, Ram Prasad Praja, and Gahi ram Praja have taken good income from beekeeping. As well as, I organized a meeting with the TCD committee and reminded them of the TCD concept and working strategy, and their responsibilities. Also, we discussed the seed project and how it has helped the community people. We decided to help one family with seed money every month for the family income. We gave seed money to Niru Tamang. She has started a micro shop business. SUCCESS STORY. This is the story of Kalpana Maya Praja. She lives in the Chainapur village in the Makawanpur district. Her husband and daughter lived together. They are poor and had no income sources. It was very hard for Kalpana and her husband to manage their family expenses. After she joined the TCD/GHNI classes, she learned and was encouraged to start a small business. GHNI provided seed money. They built a small poultry farm and took a loan from a women’s co-operative. They started their business and now have a good monthly income and managed their family.

Story Update:We have done many activities of teaching and awareness, sometimes getting together in a group and sometimes visiting house to house and having personal meetings. In the community, TCD has given the teaching of Income Generation, Food, Water, Education, and Wellness … the 5 pillars of GHNI/TCD. WATER: I taught children group of the community about the use of clean and safe drinking water. There were ten children in a class and they learned the importance of clean and safe drinking. One family in the community had no opportunity to drink water but after the TCD teaching, now this family installed a hand pump with clean water. The committee took the initiative for this work. EDUCATION: I have taught community people about the importance of education for children and women and encouraged families to send their children to school. This month also I met children and encourage them to go to school and to the parents also I did encourage. Because of TCD now community’s children started to go to school. WELLNESS: The cold has started and many people may suffer from it. So I taught them to be aware of it and if there is any problem then they need to go to the clinic. Because of the community’s TCD teaching, people look healthier than before. INCOME GENERATION: We organized a meeting for the income generation team and discussed it with them. They shared their stories. It encouraged other members of the group. Then I encouraged them on how they can multiply their income sources. I told them that it is not enough to have one or two goats but they need a plan for multiplying goats. SUCCESS STORY: My name is Maya Murmu. I live in KW village. I have 8 family members. We had a hard time because of financial problems. We labor for since long. If we get daily work then we can eat otherwise there will be no food for our family. It was very difficult to meet the basic needs of our children and the family. When I joined TCD/GHNI classes and learned about income generation. Then TCD also provided me with some seed money(for starting a business) and also I took some loans and started my micro business. When I started my business it gave me daily income and made my family life better than before, even in relationships. Now I don’t have problems with the family expenses. I felt victory over the financial problem that I had to face in the past. And I want to give thanks to GHNI for supporting me. Edited

❤️ BIG Hearts Thanks … and A Future … !!!

❤️ BIG hearts, as Nora and I offer love and gratefulness to you in your care of us over these 19 months. We’ve come so very-very-very far, far from THAT cliff! Truly we are a blessed couple and family to have such love, concern, prayers, and giving from you, especially in these times of going to the utmost precipice, death itself, and its many implications. A number of times in a day, I pause, giving God thanks for His infinite love and grace to see me through another breath, another heartbeat, another day. Flashed in front of me, I consider my entire life, from birth to present, in all its relationships, experiences, and places, an immeasurably abundant gift from Him. When I peer back into the terrain of my life, externally and internally, I do see pain (some excruciating and unseen by others), yet I am in awe of His goodness, and His extravagant kindness to me. Words will never convey, suffice, or be enough.

So as we journey on this path, Nora says I’m in the 85-ish% healed range. Now heading into December, and my progress looking into 90%, we invite you, with us into it all. Physical Therapy (actually several rounds of it) is finished and I’ve joined the Y. In our next newsletter, we’d like to gently yet faith-full(ly) introduce you to some possibilities, yes, even for some beginnings of limited travel again. Physicians all give this a “GO”. Yet for now, we see fit to bask in this “raising-from-the dead”, restoration, and so much we are learning in it all. Let’s celebrate together this provision in so many areas of God’s Presence in our hearts, and bodies. Yes, let us all together agree in it all, especially in this Thanksgiving and Christmas Season …

80% Promotion – PT – Countries Focus – Emigs October ’22


Dear Friends …    
 
80%-ish, is what Nora is telling folks I’m promoted to.  Promotions are good!  We’re getting there.  PT-physical therapy 3x per week is going well, with some improvements in both strength and endurance.  PT even took me off the heart monitoring device, saying the numbers were now looking good enough.  Pulse can still get a bit raised, and they’ll call me down on the treadmill.  Yet overall, we are encouraged in this journey of recovery, and grateful to God!  
 
I’ve had a couple of short two-night test runs/trips lately.  Both were here in Colorado and with organizations I’ve mentioned in the past.   BNO-Boys Night Out is one of our local monthly hangouts for men, that now has an annual retreat in Deckers.  The other was with the GSA, mentioned and noted in each of our monthly and hard-copy updates. GSA has regional yearly retreats, and our country region (West) is usually here in Colorado.  This year’s cabin of choice was Tabernash.  Great times of deep laughter and conversations were had by all at each event.  We also commissioned three new members in GSA.  
       

Conferences for leadership and their wives and children, in Iraq/Kurdistan and Lebanon, went exceptionally well.  So many expressions of gratefulness for meeting their needs were communicated.  Their only requests were that we expand it to include even more, next year.  Seldom are some of these leaders in difficult areas of the Middle East served in such a powerful manner.  Our teaching team from here in Colorado included two leaders, a media professional, and Josia, Mike Park’s son.  One of the many beauties of it all was that national leaders wanted to share in the teaching and mentoring.  Our team was more than glad to honor these requests.  So much more happens on each and every trip like these.  
      


Enjoy Creation, the Autumn weather, beauty, and nature provided that restores us in!   

Joyfully journeying with you in all these and so much more!

Much love …

“I’m alive !!!” 12 August ’22



Dearest friend … 
 
“I’m alive !!!” … clip from The Incredibles movie:  
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huYvLlrWIfg&ab_channel=ThangNguyen
 
yesterday the 11th on this yet another “anniversary” date (like 23 May, when all this started).  “Pull-the-plug” (NOT) day, is our 2nd, equally important celebration of the extended life given me, Nora, and our family.  11 August, the night after she was told by the surgeon’s team, at 9 am the following morning, that one of the surgeons on the team had the confidence in God, me and them/us, to pull through this ordeal, and live on into life … and NOT pull-the-plug.  Nora had, the night before prepared our children to say their “goodbyes” to Dad that day when she received the call. 

We’re all still processing these 14 months.  Counseling and input for Nora and me, professionally and with friends and family have been essential.  I’ve had a good month, I feel like I’m in the 70-80% range, and start physical therapy in ten days. 
 
And so we celebrate with you in this incredible milestone given me and us, life, bestowing blessings upon blessings!    Truly, I have crossed over from death to life!
 
Yesterday, Nora passed her Praxis Math exam!  We are so excited for her, as is she.  And hopes to become a regularly employed teacher, as soon as January.  Yippie !!!

   
On the 9th, Tuesday, Eliana got home from serving with YoungLife for over 5 weeks in the desert of Oregon.  They were severely short-staffed, yet she had a great adventure and experience.  She afterward went to Washington to see her friend, Stacy. 

    
Conference plans in Iraq/Kurdistan and Lebanon, in August and September, as well as a side trip into Jordan, are going well.  The USA team is prepared to be there, and the two trainers are excited to use their skills.  For me … well hopefully, one day soon. 

   
Armenia gears up for its newest project, and I’ve been very active in making that happen.  Times with Tamara and her husband Sam, via ZOOM, have been great.  I’d love to be there this year, though health-wise it’s looking more like late Winter or early Spring ’23. 

      
Serbia is doing extremely well, and we are so encouraged at how TCD is moving forward there.
 
Even in the journey of restoration of my health, we are allowed so many blessings to move forward, and our involvement in that.  We are so grateful to have you in our lives and on this path with us!   
Much love …
