The past two months have seen the beginning of a number of new things associated with the Nepal Center For Biblical Study [NCBS].
Monday, November 30 - Our new class of 12 students began their two year program of Bible study.
Monday, December 14 - Gajendra, NCBS Director, was married.
Sunday, December 20 - Gajendra and Regina returned and moved into their new home at NCBS. Welcome to Regina.
Friday, January 1 - Our 12 new students went on their first campaign out of the Kathmandu valley to help deliver over 1,000 blankets and $450 to Christian families in remote villages. Earthquake damage to homes, loss and/or damage of personal items, and the cold weather have caused a great deal of problems for our brothers and sisters. We divided into three groups to make the best use of time and encouragement.
Monday, January 11 - Arun Rijel and Ajay Pariyar left for the western District of Humla. One of our September graduates, Dhan Bahadur, has established the first congregation in the whole District. It takes two days by bus plus three days walking to get to this remote area. They will help evangelize new converts, teach and mature 6-8 new Christians, and deliver printed materials for Bible knowledge and spiritual growth.
A new class of students presents a special challenge… along with a special blessing. To see them grow in knowledge and understanding, to experience their progress in service and attitude, and to see the gospel blossom in their hearts is always a motivation and encouragement to all of us at the school. Their spiritual growth and development also has a huge impact on their local congregations.
2016 is off to a great start. Please keep us in your prayers.
