HOLY PALACE HOSPITAL

Naxalbari, India"

“May God Himself…sanctify you entirely.
May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless
at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

(I Thessalonians 5:23)

 
Dr S. S. Rai and the staff of the Holy Palace Hospital.

Dear Ministry Partners,

   The words above by the Apostle Paul could easily summarize the spiritual and medical philosophy of Dr. Suresh Rai and the “Holy Palace Hospital” he founded over 2 decades ago.

Dear Friends and Partners,

   As you can see, I’m here in Calcutta, standing outside the venue for a one-day conference on evangelism and mission.

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!

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.
