I am so glad to see Rita complete three years of her Bible College from Jesus College in Kathmandu with Bachelor in Theology. She has learned so many subject and things about God and the ways of ministry. She can be a good help to me in ministry. She needs your prayer and encouragement as she head up in ministry. She is hospitable.Now she is going beyond this, she is leading the teams to share the gospel around Nepal.
Program in Makwanpur
We were in Terai in some parts in June. Heat really made us very difficult to minister to the disciples and to the children in Bishnu Moktan's Anugraha Church in Manahari. Bishnu was one of our first Bible School students in 2007. He has a new Church today.
We expected only few children in the children ministry for song, sweet, balloons, and game. But in moments there were more than hundred of children in this village and their parents gather around to receive sweets and balloons and see us how we preach the gospel to the Children. We told them Bible stories. Sweat in our body overflowed from all parts but children were very passionate despite the heat. The guest who were with us did incridible ministry and impacted where were went.
We distributed clothes in June to the needy Children in Apostolic Church where Pastor Reuben serve. The Bible says give and it shall be given unto you. Christian life is sharing life. We should be the channel of blessing to others. I personally want to thank all people in home and in abroad who made contribution of clothes for the sake of the poor. So this little effort of distributing clothes is a real blessing to Christian people in Nepal.
Program in Tatopani
We had very good program in Hindi Church in Tatopani, had a message from God and more then hundreds leaders and believers were gathered there. Dilip Magar and Bigyan Shrestha, whom we support, are doing very good ministry there, leading people to Jesus, sharing the gospel through videos and Medias. Brother Wayne, Indra, Dilip, Reuben and others ministered to them on various topics and the believers were blessed.
We distributed Bibles In May June and July to needy people around Nepal. These Bibles are sent by friends oversees many of whom we never have met. Friends use regular mail to send us Bibles. Thanks to all who made contribution of Bibles for Nepal.
Home Stay in Nepal
We have started a home stay service in Nepal for Christian guests who travel to Kathmandu. They 'Come and Stay with us' Acts 16:15. Just as 2 King 4:10 we have room, bed, table, chair, lamp stand, and more then that we have Kitchen, sitting room/meeting room, Internet, washing machine and dryer, big groceries store nearby. I want to put one Laptop in this house so that Pastor can use Internet while they are here. Our Home Stay service is not for business, it is our desire to bless mission travelers. We want to be a small part in their ministry by providing rest for them. So if you know any one traveling to Nepal, kindly tell them about our home stay.
Upcoming programs and prayers
Bible School 2012
We are not called to be a member of the Church. We are called to make disciples. Member and Disciple is very different. Member stay, Disciple goes out. We are making disciples who go out and share the gospel and win people to Jesus. We all have call from Jesus Christ to go out and make disciples.
We have 6th Bible School starting from August 21 and I 100 % believe that you would pray and share to others about this. Together we can make disciple makers.
Conference in Barhabise
People and leaders in Nepal are hungry for the fresh teaching and fellowship with one to another. Pray for our leadership conference in Barhabise.
Students Retreat Program
This Retreat program is for students who were trained in our Bible School. We want to meet them and hear their ministry report, testimony, need and challenges. We want to be a small part of their ministry and encourage them to serve God.
And finally, there were 8 people who gave their life to Jesus in May June around our Churches.
