Dear respected one,
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.
Nepal Center for Biblical Studies, including all our Christian brothers and sisters at Kathmandu Valley, made a one week Bible study program for spiritual encouragement and money was delivered for zinc roof sheets at Rasuwa and Dhading for 324 Christian families.
We held three days of Bible studies from the books of Philippines and James. There were separate men’s and women's classes after lunch hours. There were participants from 11 different local congregations from Rasuwa and Dhading districts. 350 people were in our three days of classes. After the Bible study program, two different groups of Christians visited five different local congregations by hiking 6 - 7 hours each day for three days. People were spiritually and physical encouraged by these classes. Six new souls were added in the Lord's Church.
Thank you all of your regular prayer and support for God's work in Nepal.
Brother in Christ,

Greetings ............ Just a couple of additions to Gajendra's words.
Over 30 Christians went from Kathmandu on the bus to the meeting place in the mountains.
Each day the program was to begin at 8:00 AM ....... the 300+ audience began to sing at 7:00.
Every evening the program was to end at 9:00 PM ....... the singing ended about 10:30.
The last night ..... Monday ...... the singing ended at 2:00 AM on Tuesday morning.
Two groups began hiking in separate directions on Tuesday. I was scheduled to go with one of the groups. However, it was decided that my job was finished and I [due to age] should return to Kathmandu with some others. The group I was to hike with began on a road that was closed to motor traffic due to past avalanches. They had been walking about an hour when they heard a terrific noise behind them. An avalanche happened where they had been about 3-5 minutes earlier. 3-5 minutes separated them between safety or serious injury and possible death. They continued their 3 days of trekking, teaching, and encouraging.
Thanks to our gracious God.
