BRIEF REPORT FROM ASIA AND HALLOWEEN REVISITED


After a day of outreach in central Nepal.

Dear Friends and Family,

   J.L. has had a busy and exciting 10 days in Asia! The highlight was getting to share the Gospel with an almost totally unreached people group, who were very receptive to hearing the Good News, and eager to discuss the messages. I’m sorry that you will have to wait until he gets back home to learn more of the details, as some security issues are still involved.

THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.”

(Lamentations 3:23)

Dear Friends & Partners,  

   When you open this email I will be on the long flights to India and Nepal –16 hours direct. I will first land in Delhi for a night and day to visit the Anugurah Children’s Home. After that I will fly on to Kathmandu for a couple of days of meeting with as many partners as possible. Then we will begin our long, arduous drive into Tibet – the subject of my next email. But until then, be praying for this strategic time with my very first national partner in Nepal, Hanok Tamang.

(Acts 13:1)


I have the honor of standing with Rev. Murli Menon (India),
Bishop Trevor Manhanga (Zimbabwe), and Pastor Rodney Frazier
(Wakefield Family Church in Wake Forest, NC).

Dear Friends & Partners,

   What a full and exciting service for Patt and me this Sunday in Wake Forest, NC! We truly experienced the glory of the Lord as we worshipped multi-culturally and multi-racially. But before that report, let me begin with a brief study on the church.

REACHING THE NEPALI DIASPORA

 "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

(Matthew 19:14)

and his daughter, Tabitha.

Dear Ministry Partner,

   Over a dozen years ago we had the privilege of building and dedicating a church in Delhi, India, for the Nepali Diaspora there. It is estimated that there are nearly a half-million Nepalis living in Delhi – mostly in slum situations. They compose much of the labor force for building and construction.

MOMENTUM IN MINISTRY

“ … those with clean hands will grow stronger

they go from strength to strength … ”

(Job 17:9; Psalm 84:7)

Dear Ministry Partners,

   There is a popular leadership maxim that says: “Momentum is a leader’s best friend.” In many ways that’s true. Whether in marriage, ministry, missions or the marketplace – momentum is essential for growth. However, it is also crucial to remember that building momentum takes time and effort. It’s like pushing a stalled car from a dead standstill.
