Dear brothers in Christ,
Greetings to you all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May the grace of God, love, and peace always be with you.
I am always happy to share our activities with our brothers and sisters around the world who always help and love us.
Thank you to all:
We must express our thankfulness to all our brothers and sisters who have shown their love and kindness toward all earthquake victims of Nepal. Because of your help we were able to provide their needs. Please convey to all people who gave financial help toward the earthquake needs. May God bless you all.
We had guest teacher, brother Jerry Bates and Sister Paula Bates, last month from September 14-18. Brother Jerry taught our students from the book of James. It was really encouraging to our students. They represent BVBID as well as World Literature.
This month we are going to have our third batch graduation program at the school. Our 11 students are going to be graduates. We will have a lectureship program on the 13th, and our graduation function will be on the 14th of October, 2015. There will be an interview and entrance exams for new students. Many preachers, graduated students, and family and close relatives of this current group plan to join in our lectureship and graduation.
We will have three days of a Bible seminar following graduation from the 15-17 of October, 2015. Brother Mike Brooks and sister Brenda Brooks from Highland Park Church of Christ, Muscle Shoals, Alabama are in Nepal. Brother Mike Brooks will teach three days of lessons from the "Life of Christ.”
Our yearly Christian youth fellowship will be on the 20-23 of October. We will teach our youth practical lessons from the book of James. Youth from all over Nepal and India plan to join in this youth class.
Big problem and prayer request:
Recently, Nepal got a new constitution. There is much opposition from the Terai (lower part of Nepal) area, people who are not happy with this. India is not happy with this constitution. Many strikes and fighting go on at the India border with political parties over the last 51 days. India sealed all borders for security. We can hardly get food, vegetables, and it is costly. But we are not getting cooking gas, petrol, diesel, kerosene. We are using wood to cook our daily food. Even now wood is difficult to get. Few vehicles and transportation means are in the road. I worry about our preachers and guests and their coming to our meeting. Invitations were sent to all. They will use their wise decision to come to Kathmandu. Please kindly pray for the peace of our country.
Brother in Christ,
