James Putnam, a 2011 graduate of Cedar Springs High School, and his wife, Shelby, traveled to Nepal recently on a short missions trip. The village they stayed in was about an hour outside of Katmandu, the capital of Nepal. While in Nepal, James and Shelby lived in a refugee camp with a small community of Nepali people who had recently lost their homes during the earthquakes this past spring. While they were there, they (along with 20 other team members) were able to help build new shelters, made a water drain system to protect the village from flooding during the rainy season, and even leveled ground for a soccer field for the children to play on. During the evenings, they bonded with the Nepali people over a campfire as they shared a meal and sang songs.

This week stretched us both greatly, but it is through those struggles that God taught us so much. First, be grateful for the

blessings we have been given, and to bless others as a result of it. And most of all, that by serving others God’s love becomes tangible and t hat He is very pleased when we serve,” they said.

Thank you, James and Shelby, for taking us with you to Nepal!
