February 2016

As we come to the last month of our first year on the field our life is really starting to pick up speed as we serve God in Nepal. Doors are opening and opportunities are coming faster than we keep up. Our language still consumes most of our time as we still have lots to learn and lots of room for improvement in speed and pronunciation. Please continue to pray that our language will be able to keep up with our desire to begin getting more involved in church planting ministry.

The most exciting thing for me is the opportunity to begin clearly sharing the gospel with those we see all the time. I have been studying the Bible for language practice with one of the young men from one of the established churches here in Kathmandu. He has been such a help and blessing to me. However, I am hoping to start studying the Bible with unbelievers. Please pray for my Nepali and also for God to open a door with some people to study the Bible.

Also, on our last newsletter I shared with you our desire to start a church camp in Kathmandu. Since then, have finished all the paperwork for our business visa! This means that Amber and I can continue to live and serve here in Kathmandu with our family. This was a known obstacle that we have been praying for a solution for since God moved our family to Nepal. We are so excited as not only does this meet our visa necessity but will also give us great outreach opportunities and church strengthening opportunities here in Kathmandu. Please pray that God would open a door for us as we are looking for land to establish Camp Refuge.

Prayer Review:

  1. Language studies
  2. Opportunities for Bible studies
  3. Land for Camp Refuge
