Despite the heavy rainfall, Shrestha smiled all the time for he was moved by 30,000 church members who walked, smiling brightly without any complaint in the rain. He saw the members hold their children in one hand and wave flags of all the nations in the other hand, wearing raincoats. He said repeatedly, "Really marvelous! The Church of God supported me to have operation and let me participate in this great event. I can't express my gratitude by words."

As a city official asked him about the impression of Korea, he answered, "At the time of the Asian Games, I was absorbed in the game only, that I didn't have time to know Korea.
