We have had some exciting times lately around Suruvat Baptist Church. We have continued to connect with the community and have seen visitors come to check us out nearly every Saturday. We have deepened our relationships with our faithful attendees while we have begun discipling some of them. Some have even started to bring friends and family to church with them!
In June, two young men from Georgia came all the way to Kathmandu to serve with us in Kapan. Their main focus during their time here was on teaching an English course in the evenings at our church. The goal of this endeavor was to make contacts in our area. We saw several young people come in to learn English but left having heard testimonies of the love of Jesus Christ. On the following Saturday, after all the classes had been completed, we invited them to church to receive their certificates of completion. They were able to hear the gospel, and we had the chance to get to know them during the fellowship meal that followed.
In July, we will host a Family Photo Day with the hope that we will see Nepali families come together to our main service and have an opportunity to have their portrait taken (a rare treat for many in this city). They will come back the following week to pick up their printed photo. It is our prayer that we will be able to meet some of the families whose kids come in and out of our church all throughout the week. We trust that you will join us in prayer that we would see fruit from special times of outreach like this one.
We are also looking forward to Vision Baptist Missions’ Asia Regional Conference which we are fortunate enough to host here in Kathmandu. We are excited to show some of our friends around our city and share with them the great burden we have to reach this country with the gospel. Pastor Austin Gardner will be instructing us in our perspective ministries and family lives each day. We anticipate the chance for the people of our church to meet our friends and mentors from around the world!
Thank you for your partnership and your faithfulness to pray for our family. We feel so privileged to be able to serve God in Nepal. No matter what obstacles we face, we know our great God desires to see these people saved and will provide tools for that task.
For His Name’s Sake,
Paul and Amber Taube
