Project Definition
The Context
West Bengal India is considered to be the most backward, illiterate and poor state of India. Out of 95 million people, 48% people live below poverty line. The per capita income is just $250. Ten percent of the people have migrated to others states of India in search of jobs, as there is lack of job opportunity in West Bengal. The government claims that the literacy rate is 63%, but over 60% of the people are functionally non-literate. The government has done very little to develop the condition of the people. Politicians are driven by selfish motives and the caste system is very prevalent in every sphere of society. Health services provided by the government are very poor and expensive private hospitals are not affordable to common people. It is said that WB is a rich state with poor people. It is true that WB has all the natural resources like fertile land, and hardworking people, but still people are poor. While over 70% of the people live on agriculture, the technology they use is ancient. The core of the problem is the Hindu religious worldview which is characterized by fatalism, caste system, lack of biblical work ethics and lack of creativity/initiative in creating jobs for people. People expect politicians to change and politicians want people to remain poor and illiterate so that they can continue caste politics and rule. This is in contrast to the Biblical worldview which brings hope, restores dignity of people, encourages equality, and encourages people to take initiative for themselves and for their communities. The number of churches and disciples is significantly growing, which is encouraging. But most disciples are focused on personal blessings and spiritual change. Most mission organizations focus on baptism and church planting and not on change of worldview and community transformation. New churches lack deeper knowledge and understanding of the Bible and vision and skills for transforming their own community with local resources. Ministries and churches are dependent upon outside resources.
The Description
• This project will accelerate the multiplication of skilled Disciple Master trainers and Catalyst. • Master Trainers and disciple makers will gain deeper understanding of the Biblical worldview, to interpret the biblical texts into the local context, and guard the newly planted house churches from false teaching and syncretism. • They will be able to analyze the actions and behaviors of believers and clearly understand whether they are driven by biblical worldview or traditional religious worldview. • They will be able to modify and develop disciple making and leader development training curriculum based on the Bible and relevant to local context. • Churches will become transformational and will bring social, economic and political transformation in their communities. • Several transformational, integrated models will emerge which will be visible to both churches and communities. By seeing these models, other ministries and churches will adopt these models, replicate them, and begin a transformation movement in West Bengal and other states of India.
Coaching and Mentoring
An Accelerate mentor is a trusted counselor, coach and guide, someone who maintains a close relationship with the team and team leader. The mentor invests his or her time and expertise to equip the team to achieve their goal.
The mentor is always an outsider to the team, but is in continuous and close contact with the team leader. It is not the role of the mentor to be the “answer man” for every problem, but to facilitate discovery of the answers. Every team is going to go through times when no one in the team has the answer or knows what to do next. A crisis may arise or help may be needed from an experienced and objective person. No team can successfully complete the mission to disciple a city without an outside mentor.
Mentors launch, equip and multiply new teams. The team mentor is responsible to guide the team through the learning process and help team leaders to identify where they are stuck. Mentoring is both formal and informal. It is also holistic and includes spiritual and emotional nurturing, skills training and character and leadership development. Team mentors also do not work alone, but work together to help one another. Different mentors have different strengths; some are good at strategy, while some are good at relationships or with administration. Mentors continually evaluate teams to make sure that everyone gets the support they need. Accelerate has developed a useful tool for mentors to use with teams and team leaders called PATH.

Education is very much connected to women's ability to form social relationships on the basis of equality with others and to achieve the important social good of self-respect. Education can allow women to participate in politics so they can ensure that their voices and concerns are heard and addressed in the public policy. Education is a critical input in human resource development and is essential for the country's economic growth. It can help a country to achieve its national goals via producing minds imbue with knowledge, skills and competencies to shape its future destiny.

So i never experienced the love of my parents .My grandfather is an Hindu priest he would take me to many Hindu temples. Thus i don’t know anything about Jesus Christ, that he is the only living god. I was brought up with the tradition of the Hindu religion. There were no one to show love and care on me, it felt all alone and i hated myself, i decided to attend suicide .At that time some voice inside my heart told me to go to a place called kovalam .At once without thinking anything i went there. I saw many foreigners taking bath at the beach. I sat there and cried a lot, thinking of my life.One of the foreigner saw me crying and came to me and asked why was i crying? He introduced himself as Jim Mcdonal, that he is a group leader of the YWAM. He took me with him to a restaurant and bought me food. He saw my dress which was torn and he also bought me new dress .His love and care touched my heart. The next day he came to my village. He told about Jesus Christ ,and that was the first time i heard about Jesus Christ. After few days i met one of my uncle, who was converted into an Christian from the Hindu religion. He encouraged me to come along with him to the meeting to near church. I began to know more about Jesus Christ through him. I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and my life was completely changed. I have changed my name to ISACC. I went to Pune to do the DTS training (6 months) collage with the help of the YWAM s group leader Jim Mcdonal.

GIVE GENEROUSLY FOR THE LORD’S WORK IN INDIA

It takes so very little to train and send out a laborer for the Lord’s harvest in India. Please consider any of the following ways to give.

  1. Sponsor the training of a laborer for the harvest. With a minimum gift of Rs.1, 250  $20 a month you can sponsor the training of a national missionary . The full cost of training is about Rs.3,000 a month. We will send you the picture and information about the student. If you wish, you may write to the student. This is an excellent way to help in the training of national missionaries.
  2. Sponsor a national missionary in the field. With a minimum gift of Rs.2000 $30 a month you can sponsor a national missionary who; is working in the field. A national missionary family can be supported by giving a little as Rs.2000 $30 a month. If you cannot come to India as a missionary you can send someone else in your place.
  3. Support the training programs and church planting work through regular donations. Even a small amount given on a regular basis will help us immensely to carry on the training program as well as the support of national missionaries. We need partners who would give regularly Rs.500 $10, Rs.1000 $15, Rs.2000 $35.Rs.3000 $50 or more so that we can continue the various ministries that the lord has entrusted us.
  4. Help to build a church. Many of our congregations are worshiping in makeshift “buildings”. With just Rs.25000 $400 we can build a small prayer shed in many places. It takes only Rs.150,000 $2000 to Rs.3,00,000 $5000 to build a good church building in most places.
  5.  Give towards a scholarship fund in memory off someone or in honor of someone. With a one-time gift of Rs.1,00,000 $1500 you can set up a scholarship in memory of someone dear to honor in honor of a special person.
  6. Give towards an endowment fund. A substantial amount is needed for an endowment fund. Please give generously for this so that we can continue to train laborers for the lord’s harvest until He comes back.
  7. We are looking forward for your mail with prayer.

Breaking down walls that separate, and together,

building up walls that protect

Maybe that’s a good way to describe our latest King’s Kids Israel weekend…

After arriving from different parts of the land to beautiful Yad Hashmona, the youth started to gather together, yet many were trying to “run away” into their familiar setting, either with their own language mates, with their own team members or some just them and their smart phone…

Very quickly we asked for all phones to be switched off and got the team to split into small groups, 5 Action Groups which we mixed as much as we knew how to… These groups will be their team for this weekend, discussion group after Bible study, prayer time, games and more…

      

 

 After an intense time of team building games and activities as well as Bible study, worship and small group discussions, a time that could be called “breaking down walls that separate”, we all got ready, put on the old clothes we brought, got on the bus and drove to our ministry location.

A few days before the weekend, the Lord opened the door for us to go and serve in a house being renovated and fixed to accommodate handicapped Palestinian people. The house is located in an area C, a Palestinian inhabited area into which Israelis can legally enter.

Paint brushes, paint, plastic bags, wood, brooms, shovels and many other tools were prepared for our team, each one chose his location and started at his job for the next couple of hours… It was a big blessing to see that although we only had a short time to give, the Lord blessed the works of our hands and gave good results. This is the part we could call: “together, building up walls that protect”… Together, Israeli Arab and Jewish believers, contributing something, though little, to help build this house for the Palestinian handicapped people…

               



 

 

        

The amazing thing is that the paint on those walls looks just the same on the outside despite the different hands that painted it…

May we as worshipers of the most high, coming from different nationalities, backgrounds and languages, paint such a reflection of Jesus’ beauty, one that shows Him and Him alone despite the different painters…

We are very grateful that the Lord chooses to link His children together in His service and for His purposes, we know for sure that the Arabic speaking King’s Kids Galilee team as well as the Hebrew speaking King’s Kids Jerusalem team and King’s Kids central Israel team WILL be returning to further serve this wonderful initiative of a home for the handicapped Palestinians…

 

There’s no doubt that God could get the job done without me, but I can’t get the job done without the help of others.

So, as always, you have done much, encouraging us in various ways, Spiritually, practically and financially. Shaping the Ministry with us and thus the time has come

that you rejoice with us for:

Having successful, fruitful, and bridge strengthening (the foundation is already built) year round programs, week-ends, KK families’ courses and counseling as well as outreaches.

Please remember us in prayers for 2014 upcoming programs:

  • Young Leaders’ training meetings and conferences
  • Programs for children and youth –each group twice a month
  • KK families’ retreat April 11th -13th  and outreach (partly on House of Light Land inviting people from neighboring village) July 26th-August 5th
  • KK Leaders “Challenge” (in the Woods)  June 30th –July 4th
  • KK young 6-12 years, July 17th -19th 
  • KK outreach  abroad – a small group joins with other groups there, July 15th – August 5th

We are appreciative 

 

 

 

 Prison Ministry News

 “Often good news is conveyed more poignantly and powerfully through sharing in the suffering of people, by standing with them in confronting threats and fears, by weeping with them in their misery, by holding their hands in time of need, and kneeling with them in their guilt.” 

‘Our journey… is about progress, not perfection. We’re dealing with adversity. But you’ll be amazed how much distance you can cover taking it in increments. Little things add up; inches turn to miles. We string together our efforts like so many pearls, and before long…you have a whole strand!’.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,” col 3:23

"I envy you. I want to have what makes you so persistent and caring. You come to us with joy and enthusiasm as if we were the best people in the world" G

"Please come and pray with me. That's the only thing that could drive away my nightmares." Sh

 

"We could see a big difference in the life of Sh after your visit. Please visit him more often." Rabbi responsible in that prison

 

By the Lord’s direction and the help of Nikolay, our Russian speaking co-worker, alongside 15 other volunteers from different churches working on one accord, we had the opportunity to successfully do “Around Christmas Celebrations” where we visited and gave presents to 300+ local inmates, 170 illegal foreign workers & 750 Eritreans & Sudanese. Some were already saved either before being arrested or at previous visits that we did. Others heard the message of salvation with joy and responded to it, yet for some, it wasn't their time. According to them, they still need to settle things. Some even didn’t show at the “party”. We explained: “I tell you, now is the time of God’s favour, now is the day of salvation.” 2cor 6:2

 

“By the time those prison visits were completed we knew that the time we spent with the inmates meant far more to them than our words.  It was a matter of being there, our presence was good news for the prisoners – good news that they were not forgotten, good news that someone cared about them.  Our visits were like a harbinger of hope – a ray of light breaking through the dreary drudge of their circumstances.  And in this we came to see in a new way the significance of how God communicated the good news of His love to bruised and broken humanity – it wasn’t just a message in words spoken or written on a page, it was a message in a person.  The love of the messenger was the message, God with us - Jesus entering the prison of the world to show humanity that God has not forgotten us and how much he cares for us, and that he is the only one that can deliver us from evil”.

   

        

 

Please continue praying for:

·      The follow up during the year round visits. Anis and Nikolay go together strengthening those who accepted the Lord and trying to reach new ones.

·      The monthly support for those who have no families to care for them and are attending the year round bible study that we hold, putting money in their canteens for food, clothing, payment for the dentist or to buy reading glasses…etc….

·      Peace amongst the Eritrean refugees. Every year we could visit around 2000 of them but not this year. Riot is ruling in their detainee centers.

·      Post prison Christian houses. This is becoming a big issue and we fail to find who to care for those who are free now. We have one ex prisoner living with us now for three years but as we don’t have the team/staff to help care and pastor them we cannot have more.

·      Follow up with their children and families. The Lord has blessed the House of Light and we could send some of their children to summer camps or swimming courses.

 

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.” 2 Thes 3:16

“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.” Rom 16:20

Current Situation of Christians in Nepal

Nepal was declared as the Secular and Republic country in 2008. Since then, we have felt easy to practice Christianity in Nepal and able to do the Church ministry though there were some persecutions rampant in the family, parents and society and even sometimes from the Hindus based political parties of Nepal. Especially, we Christians have to suffer a lot during the time of election here in Nepal and especially the Hindus based political parties threaten to stop the Church activities and even to build the Churches in Nepal. One political party who brought the proposal to declare Nepal as secular nation has been in the third position in this election that held in November 4. The new emerging party named National Democracy Party Nepal, a Hindus based party has got 24 seats in the cabinet and other first and second parties are also in favor of declaring Nepal as one and only Hindus nation and they are preparing the draft to submit in the cabinet. If that is done then it would be difficult for the Christians to live and practice Christianity and preach, outreach and also plant the Churches and do the Christian activities.

Last week, one of the leaders of  Hindus based political party had given the interview in National television named Himalayan Television and he was telling that they have the strategy to stop the Church activities, doing Church service and planting Churches in Nepal. They are making the plan to stop the rented Churches all over Nepal by taking action against the house owner who are giving their houses on rent for the Church running and almost all the house owners are Hindus in Nepal and they also support their planning and for the first phase they are directing every Hindus house owners not to give the houses on rent for the Churches and exclude them from the houses. The current data of Nepal that having the own Church land and building is only 18 percent and the rest of 82 percent of Churches are running in rented way. If this is done then many Churches along with many Christians will be affected. So please pray for this. This is the burning issue in Nepal. When I heard this and I was really shocked as I am also doing the Church ministry and living in a rented house. We have been praying for buying the Church land so please pray so that God gives us the sources and open the doors of blessings to afford it. I need your prayers and assistance to do God’s work here in Nepal. Via yours small kind contribution, I can do great things for Christ who has strengthen me.

 

Hoping to hear from you

With love and prayers in Christ

 Dedication of my life: Recent visit of Jajarkot district reminded me my child life. I was born in Salyan district but my parent had dedicated me to a god in another district called Jajarkot. When I was about five years old my father had taken me there for the dedication. It was about four days walk from our home. I still remember the long walk up to the near Himalaya region. After the dedication I was told not to eat buffalo meat and my father also had to avoid it. When I grew up older I could eat chicken meat only because other meat made me sick or very etching of the body. When I was about 13 years old I again had another problem like coming the different type of ghost in the dream and made me scream while I was in deep sleep. This continued in my life. But when I was in Class nine I began to start not to believe in gods. I started eating the other kind of meats and then I was not getting any harm but I still had fearful dreams, screaming in the dream etc. At the age of 20 when I received Christ I began to pray and I had healed from the fearful dream. After my Bachelor level study I went for the interview with CCC. I was selected in the interview for the CCC nine month training. In that day all the selected boys and I were sleeping in one room. Again a dream came to me that I was initially walking near the edge of river and later I went in a cave there I saw an idol of Shiva god (a Hindu god). I thought it is my god and I began to cry. Then other friends made me awake. I told all the dreams I had. This dream made me whether I should do the training or not. By this time I had not grown in the Lord so much. Nobody had taught me much things to grow in the Lord.

                                  

 

My friends suggested me that it is temptation. They said Satan do not want you to do this training. Then in that mid night they prayed for me. After the prayer we slept well.

I had completed my training in 2001. After about 12 years later CCC started Church planting ministry in Jajarkot district. When I went there I felt joy and great peace in my heart. I wanted to include this story is when I went Jajarkot district I remembered all my past life where I was involved in darkness initially and now I am a part of the Ministry to take the light in this district. I was so happy to see these hills again and prayed for the people. I hope I will able to spent some more days in next visit and teach some more people of that area.

                     

 

Healing:  Most of the people in this area have come in the Lord because of the healing. I met two people who had healed from their serious problem.

Pastor Mansing explained the condition of a sister that her family member had brought her in a box in the Church. Then she stayed three days in Church. After three days she began to walk. Her swelling body began to come in normal position. She was unconscious but came to conscious after three days prayer.

                      

 

Another man shared that he had visited Kathamandu,Nepalgunj and Lucknow for the treatment of the child but child could not be healed. They spent over 200000 Rupees for the

treatment of child. Finally they brought the Children in the Church and Child is healed. Now this boy is playing drum in the Church.

In this way people are coming first to Christ through healing and later they know the truth and accept Jesus as their savior.

                          

 

Buddhi Sunar and Mansing have done wonderful job in their Ministry. Mansing’s Church is grown in up to 40 members within a year and Buddhi have around 22 believers coming in regularly in the Church.

 

 

   

     

 

 

 

Samuel shahi,Dilli Shahi and other three have begun the Bible studies in their areas. They each have three to seven members in their fellowship. May be next two quarter they are going to be forming Church with about 15 members. These three Pastors’ believers are sometime gathering together and getting training from the pastors.

About the orphanage kids:

 

 

The children are helpless and orphanage ones. They are pitiable and couldn't got the chance to get education and my wife she had the vision to bring them at our rented home and take care of them providing everything but it was not started by any sources but by faith. She herself is an orphan and God gave her a heart to take care of those helpless children and brought here in 2012 and they are happy now to be here.

Aim of keeping the orphanage children. To provide them education and make them the good strong pillars of Christ and they can serve the Lord returning back to the areas where they were taken.

Naomi Praja:  I brought the daughter of a Pastor near to India boarder and he is very poor and have four daughters and one son and has no wife and has no land but only small hut and his home is beside the national park here in our district. Her name is Naomi Praja, age 11 studies in grade 5 and she is from the endangered tribal family and her background is Buddhist. She is happy to be here and she want to be a preacher in the future and serve the Lord among her tribes.

Next one as per picture is Bibek B,K, age 12 , studies in grade 6 and her mother is Christian and do daily wages work and has no home and land. His father died some years ago when he was in the forest collecting firewood and many wasps bit and died on the spot and he wants to be a Pastor in the future.

Next is Prabin Rokaya , age 12 studies in grade 5 taken from far off Nepal, near to China boarder and he has mother who is the porter and his father is missing in the insurgency period and he is happy to be here and there was no one to take care of him and taken here just one year before and he wants to be a doctor in the future and he plays musical instrument in Church well.

Next is Sirjana Rokaya, age 14 studies in grade 10 and taken from far off Nepal, near to China boarder and she has mother who is the porter and her father is still missing in the insurgency period and she is happy to be here and she has taken baptism and wants to serve the Lord being the minister of the Lord and she is very much hunger to know the truth from the word of God and she leads in the Church.

This is the short information of the children so please pray as their studies is good and via our kind contribution and caring they can be the good Christian pillar of the nation. Please pray for them and this is joint effort work and your involvement is highly inevitable to move ahead in this orphanage ministry and to make them the pillar of Christ.

God bless you

Dearest respected Pastor in Christ
Warm and loving greetings in Jesus name from Nepal


Hope everything is fine there as we have been praying for you each day in our daily prayers with the orphanage children, Church congregation,Each Mondays Women Prayer Meeting, Each Wednesdays Prayer Assembly, Each Fridays Fasting Prayers etc. You are always in our hearts and prayers. There is not a single day that goes off without praying you before the Lord. We have been holding and up lifting you in our daily prayers as you are special and crucial to us in Christ. We are also praying for our strong spiritual relationship in the Lord and seeking His guidance and direction to work together for the expansion of His kingdom more effectively in Nepal. Only 1.4 percent of Nepalese are following Christ and got salvation, eternal life and redemption. This is the minor number and our target is that as many as people can come to Christ. For this we have been praying and attempting and trying our best. But there has been the obstacles and hindrances in outreaching the gospel to many people as we have planned. We are suppressed and interfered  by the government and from the community to preach the gospel. We the Christians are treated as second class citizen of Nepal. There are trials, temptations and persecutions into the Christian lives. It is really a big challenge to do God's work. So it is really difficult to do this work alone. We need your prayers, encouragements, inspirations and even assistance. This is the partnership work.  If we see in Luke chapter 5: 4 that Jesus told Simon to cast the net in the deep and he casted the net as per the word and they could collect lots of fish and even their net was going to worn out and they called their partners ad collect lots of fish and their boats were filled with fish. This is awesome and great things happened there and today via your and our efforts and contributions and in partnership work there will be the tremendous things happened here in Nepal and many people will follow and accept Christ. Even you small help and contribution will act as a great deal into our lives. You know Nepal is the second poorest country in the world. We have to rely on India and China for everything like foods, machinery, vehicles, cltohes etc. We don't have constitution in the country. The present government has declared to do the election in coming November 19 but 33 political parties have declared to withdraw the polling and now the government has declared the yearly budget where the expensive rate has been hiking by 10 percentage. We don't have big factories and no employment facilities. Thousands of people are unemployed and many Nepalese are now in gulf countries for work. The situation of Nepal is not good, there is poverty, chaos, political instability, corruption and this is all due to idol worshiping and they are following false gods and goddess. They are worshiping the Godly created things like stone, river, trees etc. They are astray to God. The condition is really unbearable so our God has set and kept us Christians to reveal truths among those people and lead them to God from darkness to light and I am attempting from my side but sometimes I feel worry and sad when I have to face two challenges at the same time that is poverty and persecutions. Please pray for me as I can get rid of this and can bring many souls in the Lord as far as I can and lead them in the Lord. I thank God as He has kept me among these people to preach the gospel and fulfill His commandment and commission. I am doing the best and via His grace and your continual prayers, many souls are coming in the Church and I am also getting success to give them water baptism. It has been 13 years that I have been doing His service and Ministry.


One brother named Ram Prasad Gaudel age 23, the elder son of Hindu priest took baptism on 17th July 2013. I shared him gospel right 6 months ago and he is also the student of University here in Nepal. He is from my wife's parents area. There is no one Christian in his cline, caste and generations and he is the first Christian in his generation. So please pray for him as it is really a great challenge to be a Christian in Hindu priest Brahamin family as it is called the higher caste in Nepal like Jews. So please pray for him so that he can increase his faith and follow Christ in any circumstances. I think He is only one Christian in his ward and each ward has more than 10 thousands of people. He is happy to get baptism and I had never forced him to get baptism but I was teaching and teaching him and all of a sudden one day he phoned me and told me Pastor I want to take baptism and I told him to pray and study more and more especially four gospel books and be ready physically and spiritually and I gave him Baptism Class and other teachings for a week calling him at the Church.

I have sent you some pictures of his acceptance to Christ as savior and Lord and some pictures of baptism.

Please pray for our brother Bijaya Acharya who took baptism on this June 28th and he is like an orphan as his father and mother left him and he is helpless and desperate but he is fully devoted to the Lord and getting ready for Bible College and we are praying for the source and God's provision as he needs traveling, enrollment fees, stationery, fees, pocket money etc. The sooner we can send him to Bible College, the sooner he will be equipped and serve the Lord as per his vision going to hilly areas.


Please pray for Mira Sapkota age 41 and suffering from cancer and she has also a great faith in the Lord and she is getting better and coming to the Church each week and we are going at her rented home to pray. His spouse is in Malaysia and he is also going to Church. They are up growing in the Lord.

Please pray for the new souls coming in the Church as we have asked God for bringing more and more souls and He is giving new souls.

Please pray as we have started Church in another remote hilly area of Nepal and I am going there for fellowship after this Monsoon and we are praying to start in my parents home area and planning to send this brother Bijaya there after he will be equipped and it is the most hilly area and there are not any Churches and it is 250 k.m away from us.

The orphanage children have got the first term result of this year and they have secured good marks and percentage. Among them my daughter Kristina got 99.33 percentage and Pravin Rokaya got nearly 80 percent and become 4th in his class, Bibek got 70 percentage, Naomi got 65 percentage and Srijana got 55 percentage. Thank you so much for your great prayers.I thank God as He is using me more wonderfully these days and I am able to reach with the gospel among many people. This is all due to the grace of the Lord and your continue prayers.

This much, hoping to get your feed back, response, reply, encouragements and inspirations and teachings.

God bless you
With much love and prayers in Christ

Dear beloved  in Christ,

Our Orphan reports:-

 

We have some orphan in our children home.  I (Ps. Thomas Rai)  and my wife (Gyani Rai) taking care them, our own children. We would like to bring more orphans in our home from different villages but we do not have much sponsors from them.  This year of Final Exam they have passed in their school and promoted next classes. They are happy with us. We have many applications for the orphans to accept from us but we do not have sponsors for them.

 


I would like to let you know the details about the these children's biography followings:.


1)    Sarmila Rai big one:-  I would like to explain at first for the biggest one,  the biggest girl's name is Sarmila Rai, I have brought her about 8 years about in my home. She is the first girl of this children home. at that time she was  8 years old and was working as a house servant with some ones house. She was very thin and brown hair and naked not proper care at that time. Sarmila is second child of her parents. The owner family always scolds her and made her weeping. I found her mother was contact with our village church member. With a help him, I came to know her mother and her.  She has 4 children two boys and two girls. She has nothing properties except wooden thatched roof house in their village. Her house was no door to close house in night too. Her father used to work someone's house as labour servant in the rich men's rice fields. But he was very drunkard and used to beat wife badly. Her father left her mother went (escaped) to somewhere without telling anything to her wife or others.  Since there, he never comes back to her. Some people said that he might be died in somewhere in Maoist war or somewhere nobody knows about him yet.  Since her father left her, her mother (them) they are suffering with lack of food, clothes and medicating.  For surviving their live her mother use to work as labour jobs and take care for  her 4 children but the children grown up later she  sent to Sarmila Rai to work with someone's house servant for surviving her life when she was 6 years old. She was young and could not work hard for owner’s family. She was bitten and bitten many times by them.  Sarmila's owners were not good and cruel at her.  Her mother told to me about her story and I was as mission trip to their village with Gospel of God many years ago in Sindhuli district.  Then I was very pity on her. And second time I went that village and asked to her mother please give me this girl,  I can give her good education and good life in Kathmandu for her good future. She agreed that then my wife and I brought her as our first daughter at home.  Until now she is with us and grown well with education.  She never wants to go back at her village. I brought her only one time in her village.  Since there, I got vision and burden to take care such orphan children and poorest children in my life.  Sarmila Rai is studying in class 6.

 2)     Sangita Rai is second girl of our home:- Who is she? Sangital Rai is blind girl who is Sarmila Rai's own sister. Sangita Rai is third children of her parents.  I used to go to village churches time to time to visit our village churches and strengthen the village pastors and leaders.  I use to see the blind girl at village. I use see her eyes but never think myself to help her. She was blind, then, massy hair and naked means little old cloth her body.  One day I visit her village with a village leader.  I met her mother in fellowship. Talked about her family how are they?  Sangita's mother mentioned that her relative family wanted to get married  Sangita with very old blind man next village. At that time Sangita was very young about 11 years old only.  Her mother' was not agree but her relatives used to force her blind daughter to get marry with very old blind man. But her mother did not want to do that.  I came to Kathmandu, and talk with my wife about this. We make decision to care some children.  We prayed God and look for His leading by the Holy Spirit.  I used to pray and share my vision and burden about this to my friends who I came to know. He is Nepal brother named Shankar Das. Brother  Sankhar Das from Nepal who is now in USA.  He expressed his interest to help such children. He started to sponsor for three children. I brought  Sangita Rai to our  home as second daughter for education and shelter for  her good future.  We brought blind girl name Sangita 3 years ago. We tried her for treatments her eyes but doctor told me that she could recover her eyes. Doctor suggests me to keep her in Blind school and hostel for education and shelter for her good future. I tried and tried for her to keep in blind school; I found one blind school which is running by government. I send there and she got free ship for education. But it was in very far from Kathmandu one day bus. I was responsible for her as guardian. I could see any improvement her in that school. I used to go there and bring her back to my home. One day I found that her hostel incharge was so badly treating her means scolding and threatening her. She was weeping there. So, I brought her to Kathmandu for vacation. During vacation, I found one blind hostel which is private one in Kathmandu. But there I have to pay some hostel expenses and books, dresses, etc. Now, I am sending her at blind hostel and her studying school there with some blind and some non-blind students. She is great improving now in her study. She is going to promote three classes from one.  She is now 14 years old and she is studying in one class.

 Brother Sankhar Das (Nepali brother) sponsored for some years ago in the past time but he stopped to sponsoring them because of lack of family resources in his family after he got married and have baby in USA. After this we suffered for lack of sponsors until now.

How and where Sangita studying:-  Actually she is not  living with us in  children home. We put her in with blind hostel and studying with other blinds there. We paid school fees, hostel fees and other expenses. I and my wife visit her sometimes in school and her hostel.  Also, we brings her in our children home when she has every school holidays and vacations.  We have been paying her school fees and her other hostel charge from whatever we received sponsors.  Her hostel takes care her now during the hostel and school times.

Shangita is not going to same school as other two orphans go.  I put her  in Blind hostel and studying non-blind school. I bring Sangita Rai sometimes to our home when she has holiday and when she has holiday and vacation we bring her in our children home.  Because of her school hostel send all the blind hostel students to their own parents and guardians. I am her guardian now, so, I bring Sangita to my home in her short vacation and long vacations.

3)     Susmita Rai is third girl of our home:- How I brought her in our home to shelter and education for good future. I have found her in our church in Kathmandu.  There is our church member family in our church named the Sita Rai.  She is with her sister named Sujata Rai. Sujata Rai is Susmita Rai's mother.  Susmita Rai's mother was raped some years ago in her village by one man who has other wife with children. Sujata did not complain about that care but later she was found herself that she was pregnant with that man. Later she said about that incident to parents but could get any help from that. That man did not accept her as second wife. She is poor and not educated, no body help her. Her parents also scold her and she came to her relative sister name the Sita Rai in Kathmandu. Sita Rai is working in Kathmandu with her husband.  Sita Rai helps her until she got baby. She got baby named the Susmita Rai. Later, Sita Rai helped her to find a job in Kathmandu.  She got job with someone house servant. 


She(Susmita’s mother) worked as a house servant for 5 years, in Kathmandu and cared the daughter too. But, She was always suffering for her child and not happy her own too. Also she found not good owners behave with her. As Sita said she used to weep at her and always tell her problems this and that.  She suffered a lot her life and one day she left Susmita at Sita's place and went to with other man very far place. Now she is with her husband. She got other daughter. She came  to her sister Sita, brought her daughter with her in the village in  husband's village but her husband  was not happy with her first daughter and bit her badly and wanted to kick her out if she do not bring back her  to Sita's place. She was bitten many times from her husband so, she brought her to her sister Sita.  Sita got problem what to do with this baby. Sita's husband also did not happy to take caring her. She shared her problems with me.  I and my wife prayed for this situation. We again agreed to bring her to our children one.

In this way, Susmita came to our children home. We are taking care three of them with us by providing food, shelters, clothes, medication, school fees, dresses, etc.  She is 10 years old and studying in class two now. She is happy with us.

 

4) Srijana Rai:-  Now we have brought recently one girl named Srijana Rai aged 11 years old.  During my visitation in our home town churches, I have found one orphan girl in Shakhatar villages near my hometown. Her father was died some years ago suffering Jaundice without getting treatments.  He was working as carpenter some years in Kathmandu. Later he went to his village and started to work as farmer. He has not enough land but he used to farm someone land. He suffered a lot for taking care his children. But later he became sick suffering jaundice disease. He did not had money to go to hospital for treatment. He was Hindu and tried to do some Hindu practice as chanting mantra with witch-craft. But no recover. He died without treatment. Then his wife was suffering a lot in her life with 5 children. She tried to take caring her children but she could not do that. So, she sent her sons and daughter to work as someone’s house servant. Until now they are doing this. Her daughter Srijana Rai, also used to work with someone’s house as house servant before we bring her in our children home.  Her mother had other 5 sons in different aged. Three of them who work as house servants. Her mother came to us and requested me to for her orphan sons and daughter to accept them for our children home.  I studied real her situation.  She has no enough food in her house. She has a little piece land but not enough produce food from her farm. My wife and me accept her daughter for children home. She has sons we would like to bring them too but we do not have sponsor. if some wants to sponsor for them, we may bring them too.

 

There are many requested to us like this orphans from guardians for their orphans to accept us from different villages and from different castes. If anyone want to sponsor them we are ready bring them in our children home.

 

In the future we would like to bring many orphans in our children home:-

There many orphans now in the list their parents are died. Our village churches pastors want to bring them to our children home here in Kathmandu with us.

They are thousands of orphan are living in as house servants for their surviving their lives in Nepal instead of going to school . We can see  their future very dark future. As a serving of God we pastors  want to help such poorest orphans and to give good and bright future in the Lord and also draw them in Christ and help them to be servant of God.

We would like to care boys and girls both in our children home.  But we would like to give fist priorities to girl orphans because of girls are  not safe in Nepal.  There are bad people in society of Nepal; they are selling thousands of girls from Nepal in brothel in India.  Also some  people are leading such poorest team in prostitution in Nepal also.

There are many poorest orphan girls' works as house servants in cities, villages including in Kathmandu city. So, our vision and burden grown bigger and bigger to help such orphans in the Lord to give change their  life and give good future.  We want to draw them in Christ. The orphans whoever with us now they have accept the Lord Jesus after we bring them to shelters and care them in our children home. So, we want to bring such orphans in Christ.

We are praying for the kind sponsors who can support such orphans.  Now, we are praying for this situation for God's wisdom how to lead these orphans for their good future.  We can sense that God is with us and strengthening us.  Actually, this is not my work to feed the children. It is God's work; He will provide all their needs.


Thank you very much for your kind prayers and supports to our church ministries. You may play great roles to help to the our ministries of Nepal. We heartily appreciate you for your great labour for praying for us. We hope that one day you will visit us  in Nepal than you would see all the our Godly activities in our church ministries. We are waiting to hear from you again God bless you.

 In Him,

Yours truly,
