News from Nepal —
Last week we got a letter from Eldest Son.
(This gave me a start!)
I just wrote you but i need to tell you something.
I decided to marry a Nepali girl.
Don’t worry she speaks english well and she’s really nice.
It’s going to expensive but worth it.
Ok i’m totally just kidding.
What I wanted to tell you is that i decided to come home for the summer instead of the Send House. So I’ll be around. I decided that this was the direction i should take . . . I had every intention to say yes to (this invitation) and i was planning on it for the past 3 weeks in gorkha but when i sat down this morning and wrote that i was coming i couldn’t send the email. So i saved it, talked to my leaders about it and finally decided that i should come home.
And i’m totally just kidding about marrying a nepali.
Don’t worry. Love you momma. Raph
As you can imagine, there is great rejoicing at Shady Acres! We advised Raph to be obedient to the Call of God upon his life, and if that was to serve on staff at Summer Challenge, we wanted him to do that. But we are so delighted at the prospect of having him home!
Lord willing, he flies for home in just 18 days!
