is the ministry activities of Pastor Reuben and 40 other Church leaders around Nepal.
I do hope that you enjoyed the summer. Every time I think of you I give glory to God. In all my prayers for you, I always pray with joy. I would not have met you if I was lost in my sin. I am thankful to God for choosing me. I believe the Lord has called me to encourage and equip leaders for the work of ministry. We have been spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and I must thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to serve the Lord in Nepal where the gospel has not been preached openly.
Our football team played matches in the national qualifying league in May. We were able to impact nation in sport by our prayer and distribution of gospel tracts and sharing the gospel with young people. It is a medium to reach people. We had a very good chance to share the gospel with them while they were as a team. It is not just playing; we share our faith to them. There are many worlds, and sports world is one of them, we must bring gospel to all of them.
I am so glad to see Rita complete her three years Bible College from Jesus College in Kathmandu with B.Th. She has learned so many subject and things about God and the ways of ministry. She can be a good help now after. She needs your prayer and encouragement. She is hospitable. She ministers to the need of the poor and widows. Now she is going beyond this, she is leading the teams to share the gospel. Now we can do more together. Your financial help really help us do the work of the gospel in Nepal.
Program in Makwanpur
Nepal is divided into three major geographical landscapes. Plain, mountains and High Mountain. We were in Terai in some parts in June. Heat really made us very difficult to minister to the disciples. 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. They wanted something. We do not have children gospel materials but we can produce it if we get sponsor. Many Churches in Nepal do not have Children materials.
We distributed clothes in June to the needy Children in Pastor Reuben Church. The Bible says give and it shall be given unto you. We are not rich but we can’t close our eyes when we see naked. Christian life is sharing life. I personally want to thank all people in home and in abroad who made contribution of clothes for the sake of the poor. Poor people in Nepal are not able to purchase new clothes. Many Pastors in Nepal has resigned because they are feeling pressure to feed their family and provide education. So this little effort of distributing clothes is a real blessing to Christian people in Nepal.
Program in Tatopani
We had good program in Hindi Church in Tatopani. We had a message from the word of 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.
We were able to distribute Bibles to needy people. These Bibles are sent by friends oversees many of whom we never have met. 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 are traveling to Kathmandu. They can ‘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 was inspired by this Shunammite woman who offers hospitality to Prophet Elisha. This guest house provides them rest, and Rita is busy cooking for them, like the Shunammite woman. She prepares best food in the world, come and tastes her cooking. I want to put one Laptop in this house so that Pastor can use Internet while they are here. 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 called to make disciples. Member and Disciple is very different. Member stay, Disciple goes out. We are disciple who makes other disciples. In the Church, you can’t be a proud member, you should be a proud disciple who go out and make disciple. That is what we are doing through your help. 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 others who would be interested to pray for this Bible School. Together we can make disciple makers.
Conference in Barhabise
Christians in Nepal are hungry for the fresh teaching and fellowship. We are small group of people who emphasis staying together, just workers and Pastors. We have leadership conference in September and we want to request you to please remember us in your prayer.
Students Retreat Program
This Retreat program is for students who were trained in our Bible School. It is important to meet them, hear their report, testimony, need and challenges. We want to be a small part of their ministry by encouraging them.
