“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Mission 1: To the Forgotten
God has shown us favor in the midst of so many people groups, that we are able to have fellowship with. We are able to serve the people who are forgotten by government, but not forgotten by God. One of the people groups is from a remote area. We had the opportunity to teach them the Word of God and give their children stuffed animals. God is leading us to disciple this people group in the coming days. There are a lot of young people who are eager to know the Word of God but have not gotten the opportunity to study. We all are praying that God may open the door for us to serve these people in the coming days. They are from an indigenous people group, and almost all of the people live in remote areas far from the city. Right now, we are missionaries to them.
Mission 2: To the Called
God has been great among the people that we are able to disciple in our Bible College. Because of COVID-19, we have not been able to meet with our students, and some of our brothers, sisters, and graduates for a long time. Last month, we were blessed to have fellowship with them. Even more importantly than that, we were able to study the Gospel of Mark together. It is always great to encourage them that only what is done for Jesus is what matters. Not only to encourage them, but also to show them by our lives. We encourage them to live like Jesus and to serve like Jesus–no matter how hard life is. It was awesome to hear their testimonies of when they were in their homes through COVID-19. It was a blessed time to see them grow in God’s Word as well. We prayed together that we will be able to join together at the Bible College in the coming days and have fellowship again. Right now, we are missionaries to these young people who are called.
Mission 3: Behind the Mountain
God opened the door for us to do a mission in a different part of Nepal. We got invitations to teach the Word of God in an area which is behind the mountain of Kathmandu valley. They were from a couple of churches from different denominations, but we didn’t care about what denomination they were. Seeing their need for the true Word of God and the opportunity to share from the book of Acts, we headed there. It was a 4 hour drive. When we started to teach, we saw that the people are extremely hungry for the Word of God. Even though it is so close to the Kathmandu valley, they have not gotten an opportunity to have a conference like this. We were so blessed to spend time with them for a couple of hours. After all of the effort we put out to go this place, we say, “lt was worth it.” We are also a missionary to them.
- Please pray for the remote people we are ministering to. May God lead them to come to the Bible College.
- Please pray for the Bible college students to continue to serve the Lord.
- Please pray for more boldness to share God’s Word with the people around us.
God bless you,
Pastor Anand and Usha and Family
