The Call of God
This has been a great semester at the Bible College! It has been wonderful to see all of these young people from all over the country, who were called to the ministry, never leave Nepal. In the current situation in our country, most of the young people go abroad to chase their dreams. We honor these young people who are instead sold out to Christ and His mission. These young men do not have much wealth at their homes to take care of their future. They are ready to give up worldly things to run and grab eternal things.
We staff see them as clay. When they came to Bible College, we gave them to God, who is the potter, to model them in His desire and in His way. God is preparing them to have different abilities for the ministry. When we ask them, “What is your gift from God?”, they reply, “I don’t know.” However, the senior students have figured out why they are here. Some new students still struggle with old habits and some are facing new struggles which they have never faced before. Ether way, all of the students are called in different ways and for different purpose of God, etc. Keep praying for them that they may cling unto Jesus.
“But now thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)
The Gospel on the Mount
These young men not only love to walk–they love to share Gospel together in the mountains. These young men are friends in the Bible College and love to go friends’ houses and share Gospel. When they go to their friends’ houses they say “I see a great harvest, but the worker are few.” I love to tell others about how these young men have started to love people and want to win them in Christ.
In a particular mountain area, there is no church. No Christian people live anywhere around there. But praise God we have a student name Padam who is in his final semester in Bible College. We are excitedly looking forward to seeing this brother serve the Lord in this area in coming days–as we are already seeing him serving! He is a young man who grew up without father. He was left by his mother. He worked for different people in stores, and eventually went to another country for job. He ended up drinking and working in a brick factory. He was lost and now is found. Now, he wants to go reach the people in those mountains (where he grew up) who are lost. His family has been reunited and he is staying with them and having a Bible study twice a week. Keep on praying for him and the area were he is serving. Let God pour out His Spirit upon him.
“And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them…”(Matthew 5:1-
The Fellowship of Acts
We never even prayed for it. We never guessed it could happen. We didn’t deserve it. But, what a wonderful thing to have wonderful young people of another Bible College join together with us to have fellowship and do a Bible study of the Book of Acts! These young people were such a blessing to us as well. It is a great joy to serve these young men by teaching them and having fellowship with Nepali snacks. We thank God that He allowed these things to happen, so that we are able to host these young men. We thank God that He is helping us to influence these people, and teach these young men. While we were introducing ourselves to these young men, we found out that they are from different denominations and organizations, but when we come together to fellowship, we see that we are one in Christ and one big family. What a joyful thing to sit together and worship together to our living God. Please pray that God will bless this fellowship, which we do twice a month.
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”(Hebrew 10:24-25)
