Latest News from Simon and Wendy
Simon and Wendy are at present living with Wendy’s parents in Minnesota. The move was due to Wendy being pregnant with their second baby due in July and also the impact of the coronavirus in Nepal.
"Nice to hear from you and Uckfield Church.
Wendy is doing well. 5 weeks to go. Her brother’s wife just had a baby today! A new cousin for Libby 😊
We are all safe and well, thanks for asking. It is nice and warm. We had the paddling pool out today. I hear it has been lovely weather in the UK too?
I think Wendy’s parents mostly appreciate having us, we try and be good guests, but I know we have somewhat disrupted their space and rhythms.
Yes we do miss Nepal. So, in one sense we are quite glad to be here, though in another we feel some guilt to be disconnected from our community and neighbours. It has been nice to be with family here in the States, but now Simon’s Father is quite ill in the UK, and we feel the separation.
This week in Nepal, despite Covid cases continuing to rise, the country has started to open up a little. As you can imagine, the lockdown has meant near starvation for many families who live hand-to-mouth, so in some ways a reopening is welcome, but in others, there is fear that the virus will spread and the few healthcare facilities will struggle to cope. Please keep Nepal in your prayers.
I’m glad that you have been finding online and social distancing ways to meet. I think we are all reimagining what it means to be in community, but physically separate. We have heard of UK churches having higher attendances online, than their normal services. In Nepal, very few churches have had this facility, but some of the bigger Kathmandu-based ones have been broadcasting in this way and they are open for anyone to watch.
We hope that you will continue to do well. We will be praying for UBC. I believe we are scheduled to visit in September. It is unlikely that it will be in person, probably in a more virtual capacity, but we always enjoy your church and are grateful for your prayers and support.
Simon and Wendy"
