Another great day in Tarachowk with very nice weather.    We had a very successful 3 days at Tarachowk medical outreach.  We treated over 500 patients in the 3 days that we were there.  After devotions and breakfast this morning, we left Tarachowck at 8:30 am and arrived at Ram Bazaar (altitude of 4700ft).  After walking a long 7 hour trek, we were greeted by a community group to welcome us here.  We are settling down and preparing for tomorrow's medical camp.  We will start early tomorrow morning for 3 days of medical evangelism here at Ram Bazaar. A woman [...]

Medical Outreach Update March 15th

Medical Team Day 3 Update Hello from Tarachowk, Nepal!  It is another beautiful warm day!  One of the 1st patients this morning, Ron Bdr Adhikari, age 52, came to the camp with bad abdominal problems.  An ultra sound was done and after the results, the patient was given medicine to take.  Dr Joe then opened his bible to John 3:16, and through his interpreter, he read it to him.  The man said "If I could only read, I would read it every day.  I never learned to read, but when I sleep at night, I put a bible under my [...]

Medical Outreach Update March 14th

2018-03-15T17:52:10-04:00March 14th, 2018|0 Comments

Today we saw about 200 patients. Most of them were adult men and women.  They came from 4 nearby villages.  Many of them walked about 2-3 hours each way. Many of them were suffering from uterus problems for women and others were gastritis, skin and joint problems.   Weather is very warm.  Many, many people received bibles and everyone clearly heard the Gospel message!   What a great day!!!!!   Padam and Steve and all the team from Tarachowk Nepal.

Meet Pastor Sundra Tamang

2017-03-25T15:34:04-04:00March 26th, 2017|0 Comments

You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 2 Tim. 2:2 When I met Sundra Tamang, I thought he was way too young to even think about heading into northern Nepal to teach and preach. On February 8, while I was in Nepal looking at the new church plant in Manang Nepal, we had the awesome opportunity to visit all of our men in the field at a Pastors conference [...]

Update from the team in Kathmandu, Nepal

2017-02-08T09:58:52-05:00February 8th, 2017|0 Comments

Hello All, We returned back to Kathmandu this evening (Wed) at 630 PM. It took over ten hours to drive down from our church in Ram Bazaar Lamjung. Severe traffic jams and many serious accidents along the way. Thank you to so many who have sent positive emails and Facebook messages letting us know you were praying. I’ve never seen such incredible beauty or been so close to the actual Himalaya mountains. It is breathtaking, but also quite daunting. The roads are horrifically bad, in some places there just aren’t any. There are dirt roads that run thru rivers and [...]

Update from the Team in Koto, Manang

2017-02-07T18:33:59-05:00February 6th, 2017|0 Comments

The team has made it to the town of "Koto" in the Manang District but could not go any further because of the weather. Freezing rain hail and snow at 10,000 feet. The locals and our driver cautioned us about staying overnight because we might not be able to get back out in the morning. We had a very productive time in Koto. The new landlord leased us a four room flat for a church and also living quarters for the new pastor and his wife. They will move up here in three weeks. Please remember to pray for this [...]

Arrived in Ram Bazaar

2017-02-07T18:33:59-05:00February 5th, 2017|0 Comments

After an 8 hour van ride and a 2 hour 4WD Jeep excursion we've arrived at our church in Ram Bazaar, Lamjung. Amazingly, the  local Nepali government water authority opened up their buildings and bunk houses for us to stay in!! Running water and actual beds to sleep in is a blessing. Tomorrow at 7AM we leave here and head north to reach the village of Chame. We are hoping to get the in 5 hours but it is very far north near Annapurna. It was great meeting many of the pastors again, some we haven't seen in [...]

New Work in Manang Nepal

2017-02-06T09:00:35-05:00February 2nd, 2017|Tags: |Comments Off on New Work in Manang Nepal

This week we will be again be heading over to Nepal. Padam, all the Pastors, and many of us here, have been in prayer seeking direction for our work in 2017.  They have all agreed that we should make preparations to begin church planting (and building) in the northern district of Manang.  This area is situated to the north west of our current efforts in the district of Lamjung.  The district of Manang is an extremely rural district with a very harsh environment. Aside from the famous Annapurna trekking route that passes right though the district, there is little to [...]
