It is always a blessing to share what is happening and guess what will happen according to the promises of God. So many thanks to all our seniors who lead us, teach us, and show us how to follow Jesus.
“Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.”
-1 Corinthians 11:1
Imitators as prayer warriors: We all know that the only thing the disciples of Jesus asked Him to teach was how to pray. We all believe that prayer is so important. We see that Jesus prayed, His disciples prayed, and all men of God pray. We also pray. We love to pray and we love to join together in prayer.
It is awesome to see our students have prayer meetings every Friday. These Bible Institute students have learned as the 1st century church did. We love to say they not only pray but also thank God for how He answered their prayers. These students have learned to wait upon the Lord and go share the Gospel. These students have sold themselves for Christ and carry their crosses and kneel down so that Nepalis may come to Christ. Thank you all so much who join us in prayer to win people for Christ.
“Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.”
Imitators as Gospel preachers: Jesus preached “the kingdom of Heaven”. We appreciate our students’ love to go out and preach the Gospel. They have seen how dark the world is. They have seen how people are lost. They have seen that people are sheep without a Shepard. They have gone to the Leprosy colony to share Christ and also to the city square. They use Gospel songs and Gospel folk dances. Through songs and dance these students have learned to share the Gospel. They were rejected by many and accepted by many. They know that the servant is never greater than the master. We appreciate your prayers as they preach the Gospel.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Imitators of Jesus’ Love: As Christ left heaven for the sinners of this world, our student had to forsake this world to love God and the people of the community. So many Nepali young people go to work abroad chasing their dream, but we thank God that we have students who want to love God and serve the people of Nepal. We believe that these things happen only because of the Spirit of God living in us. Our students have seen the urgency to share Christ in the mist of their people. This has happened because Christ’s love compels them to serve Him. Despite the discrimination of the caste system (because the majority of people in the community are Hindu), the students love to tell people of every caste about God. As Christ has emptied Himself for us, our students have also learned to empty themselves and as Christ became a servant, they have also become servants.
“And above all things have fervent love for one another, for love will cover a multitude of sins.”
1 Peter 4:8
