It is a majestic place with beautiful people, but lost without Christ! In February 2016 & 2017, I saw the scars after the earthquake, and I saw something else – receptive hearts to Jesus’ message! It was amazing to share with people who had never heard of Jesus and what He came to do for them. The people of Nepal are steeped in religion and have 33 million gods. The idol worship is SO disheartening, but then you realize this is the reason God has you there, to share the Good news of Jesus Christ!
The evangelical believers are 1-3% of the population… talk about an Unreached People Group! God is indeed moving like never before! We now have over 1000 church planters trained and many more ready to start. They had said they’ve prayed that God would shake this country. The Lord is shaking Nepal for His Glory! …
Jesus said, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except though me” – John 14:6.

The Lord is moving in Nepal, and here are some testimonies from some participants from the 2017 project…
We were witnessing to a group of people in a small village. One man accepted Christ and was smiling from ear to ear. He prayed to receive Christ and turned and ran away. He returned in a few minutes with a gospel tract. He was so excited to show me the tract that someone had given him earlier. I wish I was that excited for Jesus every day!
Last year I worked with a group of Nepalis that included young dancing girls. This year I had the privilege of working with two of the girls
again. I had regretted not talking with them last year as well as I would have liked. We were able to connect well this year, even though their English is limited. At the end of our two days together, they both asked for an EvangeCube to share the gospel with their friends. Gloria
One highlight was that I had the opportunity to preach at a church of about 50 people. I preached on Matthew 26:39 and Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. To see the hunger of God’s people for His Word was amazing. To watch this Nepali church pray, sing, and worship was truly astonishing. At the end of the sermon, my translator was so moved and convicted by the message he had just translated that he hugged me. It was also amazing to see 10 people from the community accept Christ.

I was impressed greatly by three men who, on separate days, heard the gospel presentations without their intent to do so. One was a businessman, one a father of a believer, and the third our bus driver. Each showed disinterest at first but gradually warmed up to what they were hearing. The businessman respected who we were and made a gift of Cokes to all present. The father remained for the entire presentation and the driver received a copy of a Nepali Bible. Each has kept the door open for future contact with the gospel. It gives to us a vision of God working behind the scenes and we can still pray! Jerry
The highlight of the week happened after presenting the gospel to a group of women in a residential area. When I asked if they wanted to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, a young man rode up on his bicycle and said, “I want to accept Jesus.” I did not know where he came from and he said he was passing by and overheard what we were talking about and how he wanted to accept Jesus. I led him in the sinner’s prayer. I told him it was important to pray, read the Bible, fellowship with other believers, and tell someone about his decision. He said he had many friends who were Christians and he would tell them. He said, “I am very happy.” Praise the Lord for His harvest. One soul at a time. Janell
