Serving the Lord Together

Praising the Lord Together at our Youth Conference

Fellowship in the Capital

When I came to visit the capital, I was able to visit some of the Bible College students who were on semester break. We did house fellowship together and were able to have Bible studies in some of their homes. It was a great time of encouragement with them and they were excited to go back for their next semester of Bible College.

Having Lunch Together at the Youth Conference

Youth Conference

Worshiping God Together

We had a combined youth program with the youth group from our church and from the church that my uncle pastors at in his village. My heart in having a combined program was to be able to keep the teens in fellowship with one another, and spend time building their friendships with each other. We played some games and shared lunch altogether. I taught from the Word and encouraged them the importance of reading their Bible and how studying the Word will help them grow in their understanding of God .

Reaching Out Through Medicine
Hosting a Medical Outreach

Medical Outreach

It was so excited to be able to host a visiting team from America to do a 3-day medical outreach. In those few days, we had about 220 people come to meet with the doctor, the optician to examine patient’s eyes, learn dental hygiene, and hear the Good News. We were able to plan children’s ministry for about 50-60 local kids immediately after they finished school to play games and hear Bible stories. A praise report of one man who said he used to attend church when he was a kid and then left after he got older, but when he re-listened to the gospel at the medical outreach he deicide to come to church that following Saturday! Please pray for him and for his salvation.

Prayer Requests:

  • For my family to mature in their relationship with Christ & to have good health
  • Our church believers to grow in their faith
  • Pray for my community to know the difference from the Truth and the false teachings
  • Pray for me for safety and for good health

Thank you,

Celebrating Christ

Celebrating Christ Together

Thank you for your prayers! It has been a fruitful month. We had a great time with the church during Good Friday, Easter Sunday and also our Music Conference that we had for the youth in our community.

Good Friday


As a church family, we all fasted and prayed together and read the scriptures. We prayed for unbelievers in our family, friends, our community and our country. I taught about Jesus’ great sacrifice and encouraged the church to be faithful to Him and encouraged to tell our Hindu friends and family what God has done for us all, and why we will be celebrating His resurrection on Sunday. It as a good time of fellowship, and encouragement altogether as a church.

Easter Parade

Easter Sunday

All of us pastors in the district planned and hosted an Easter program for all the churches in our district.  We all gathered in a big field and marched through the main city with singing and dancing with different music and cultural dress and holding signs with bible verses on them.  Our district came together to proclaim that He is risen almost 80 churches attend the program that made almost 3,000 people, including many Hindu people who are high up in government came to attend.  After we marched through the district, we gathered at a big hall to worship together and told the whole community that Jesus is different than any other religion and shared the gospel.  During our Easter Sunday program, we sang worship songs and had special gospel dances perform.  I had invited my Hindu cousin to our good Friday service, Saturday fellowship, and then she attended the Easter Sunday program where she was able to hear the gospel for the first time.

Celebrating Christ Together

Music Program

Our church was a part of hosting a music training program for about 6 of churches.  My friend, Prakash, and his team came and taught how to play different instruments and how to have a worship team for the church.  Many youth kids who are already on a worship team at their church learned more about how to work together and lead a fellowship in worship.

Thank you for your prayers and support,
Milan

Making Disciples

“And Jesus came and spoke to them saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'”  Matthew 28:18-20


Calvary Chapel

I am so glad to be able to serve the Lord at Calvary Chapel.  God has blessed my family and me in many different ways while I have been serving here.  The Lord has called me to labor in this village where I spend most of my days throughout the week encouraging and discipling new believers.

My two younger brothers, Manish & Mahesh helping lead worship at Calvary Chapel Dumre.

   Recently, the Chepang family (from an unreached people group), has received Christ and has been attending Calvary Chapel for two months.  Rajendra, his wife and five kids walk an hour every Saturday to come to church and hear from God’s Word.  There is great opportunity to serve them and disciple them, please pray for their family’s personal needs.  It is a blessing that more children have been coming to church, please also pray for youth leaders to be raised up to help with a children’s ministry.



Calvary Chapel Pastor’s Training Center & Bible College


My brother, Manish with his classmates (Manish is in the back row in a red shirt.)

   I am very happy to have sent my younger brother, Manish to attend the Calvary Chapel Pastors Training Center this semester.  I know that God is doing amazing work in his life.  Manish was fearful to attend CCPTC because he felt he wasn’t very good in school.  He is naturally a very quiet and shy man but now he has been opening up, making friends and is growing closer to God.Thank you for your prayers!

Prayer Requests:-       

1.) My family and their good health-       

2.) The church members to grow in faith and love-       

3.) That I may be a light and salt in my community-       

4.) God’s provision for the completion of church construction and for electricity-       

5.) For a water well; we’ve tried to dig twice but we have only reached stone-       

6.) For my parents to grow more in their relationship with God 

Thank you,

500+ Youth Gather

Helping Host a Youth Conference

I am thankful for your prayers and support as I serve and lead the fellowship at Calvary Chapel. I am going to be sending updates to keep you informed and ask that you continue to join me in praying for God’s work in my area.

   Last month, I was part of the leadership committee. The 13 of us planned and hosted a youth conference for students from all over our region. There were 60 churches represented at the conference. 500+ youth in our district, most of whom are believers in Jesus, attended! The youth conference was held on a soccer field. We had so many youth register that we had to rent a tent to hold everyone for the three days.
 The theme of the conference was “Rooted In Christ” from Colossians 2. It was an honor to be asked to teach. It was my first time to share the Word at a youth conference of this size. As I prayed, the Lord laid it on my heart to share from Acts 16, about the life of Timothy. At a young age, Timothy decided to serve the Lord. I challenged the youth to do the same and ask the question….”What are you doing with your life?”

Teaching at the Youth Conference

   We had a worship band and much teaching and all were encouraged. I am looking forward to continuing to serve on the Leadership Youth Committee. We are planning host this conference every year. I believe that this generation can make a huge impact for Christ. They just need to be taught and discipled in the Word so that they can defend their faith and share it with other young people.
   Please pray for our fellowship of believers. Please pray that they would grow strong in the Word and that we would have many opportunities to share the Gospel with others.
Also, we will be hosting a medical outreach at the end of November in our church. Pray that as those who are sick come, that we would be able to minister to them spiritually while we are ministering to them physically.
Thank you,
Pastor Milan
