Dear respected brothers and sisters in Christ,
Greetings to everyone in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May the grace of God, love, and peace always be with you.
Our almighty God, through His people around the world, bless us. We would like to share our few words of report from the month of October and November 2015.
Eleven students graduated from the Nepal Center for Biblical Studies at Kathmandu, on October 24, 2015. The day of graduation was really encouraging to all. We had to cancel our yearly youth camp at school in this year. We didn't have cooking gas, sufficient food, and transportation was full of problems and danger due to a strike and political unrest.
Brother Jerry and I decided to visit our brothers and sisters in East Nepal and India during this vacation. We traveled to East Nepal on October 24 and returned back on November 2, 2015. We had Bible studies, fellowship, and a worship service at East Nepal for two days. Then we went to West Bengal of India where we have four of our recently graduated students. We spent four days and nights with three full days of Bible study and other evening devotional classes. It was really encouraging for us as well as the Christian communities. There are two congregations that have 100 members. We had helped them to construct two church buildings for fellowship and worship. That construction work was already completed. We spent another three days of Bible study and devotional time at Mirik of Darjeeling district. I was engaged with Rejina Thapa on November 1, 2015. If the Lord is willing I will marry her on December 14, 2015.
We were planning to begin our new classes on November 16, 2015. However, we had to postpone for another two weeks. We don't have cooking gas and food for groceries. The political strike goes on in the south (Terai) part of Nepal. The Indian government sealed all borders. Nepal is facing really big problems. Please kindly remember us in all of your prayer.
I would like to revisit our graduated students and their local congregations before beginning our new classes. I don't prefer to take any other brothers with me due to transportation problems. I am thinking and planning to go at Tanahu, Chitwan, and Makwanpur for one week. My time will be from November 17 - 24, 2015. The purpose of my visit will be to encourage our graduated students and establishing them in God's ministry.
Thank you all for your regular prayer, love, and concern about us. May God continually bless you all.
Brother in Christ
