As you can imagine, the last few years have been challenging, tiring, and stressful for pastors in Nepal. Due to the COVID pandemic, church services were shut down for months. Families faced economic challenges and as a result have given less to local churches. Pastors are working tirelessly to serve people in their communities and grow their churches.
In the midst of these challenges, God has been growing his church and showing his love. People have been healed of diseases. People have been fed when they had nothing left. And people are being baptized into the community of God’s family. God is on the move.
Our Nepal staff met in November and felt that more than anything, what our pastors need right now is the Peace of God. The conference will be rooted in Philippians 4:4-7, “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say, rejoice! Let everyone see your gentleness. The Lord is near! Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
Please pray that the pastors will be able to attend the conference and experience rest, restoration, and renewal. Pray that the Holy Spirit will move in a mighty way and give the words to the speakers at the conference. Pray for God’s power, unity, and that the pastors would be invigorated to head back to their communities.
On March 19-21, we are expecting over 100 pastors to attend our annual conference in Chitwan, Nepal. I would love your support for this conference in prayer and funding.
$215 will send a pastor to the conference covering everything, including travel, lodging, and food. The total cost of the conference is $25,800.
