November/December 2011

In everything give thanks . . .

I returned just last week from nearly a month in Asia in time to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with my family. The largest share of that time was spent with the  ServLife staffand ministries in Nepal and India. And I want to tell you, we have much for which we are giving thanks.

  • Our 5th Annual ServLife Himalayan Development Conference in Kathmandu, Nepal brought together 53 of our church planters who are serving in the remote villages of that nation to bring the good news of God’s Kingdom and to form communities of the Kingdom.
  • An onsite visit to ServLife’s Daya Girl’s Home in far-western Nepal as well as visits to more than 10 schools in which ServLife is sponsoring the children of the poor for education.
  • Visits to both the ServLife Children’s Home and Peace Loving Home for children in Kathmandu. It’s great to see how the kids here are flourishing.
  • Our 8th Annual ServLife Empowering Society Conference in Raxaul, India. For the first time this conference was held in the new ServLife facility. What a great blessing this facility is both to the children and our staff and those being trained for service. We had some valuable time together discussing how to build sustainability into all we do.

For all that’s being done to plant communities of God’s Kingdom and to serve children-at-risk and the poor we give thanks. But I would be remiss if I did not also direct our thanks to all of you, the friends and donors of ServLife. Your partnership with us makes it all possible and for that we are giving thanks!

Take a few minutes to look at an array of photos from our time together in Nepal and India as well as a couple of brief video clips with fresh footage from the conferences and ServLife workers. Enjoy!

Each year, in Kathmandu (Nepal) and again in Raxaul (India), we call together all our workers on the field to celebrate all that God has done, is now doing and what He will do in the coming year. . .
