Milan (far right) with students
The Lord has been gracious to our co-mission partner Milan Kumar Magar, giving him the strength to travel 14 hours to the western region of Nepal to help local pastors in mentoring sessions.
Since last year, he has mentored six pastors from Baptist, Evangelical, Pentecostal and Presbyterian denominations.
Raj Kumar and Sita were among 70 couples and 30 singles my wife and I had the opportunity to serve through a family seminar held in May this year. Along with another couple, we had the privilege to facilitate some topics like role of husband and wife, communication in marriage, expectations in marriage, foundation of marriage and Bible studies on family life.
Human trafficking is one of the major social problems to have emerged from the devastating earthquake in Nepal on April 25 last year. News of girls and children disappearing from earthquake-hit areas in remote parts of the country has become common.

“Back then, I had no idea that an incredible transformation would happen in my life. The journey I went through from completely not knowing about Jesus and now proclaiming him as Lord and Saviour is a great privilege,” says the 22-year-old girl.
One of the most common taboos in Pakistani society is “disability”. Disabled people carry a stigma which can dog them for life.
A village in Khowaja Goth, rural Sindh, chants this same sad story of the scars that disabled people, especially children, have been bearing since birth. The lame or mentally retarded children have one and only possible way to survive, and that is to be shut out completely from society. Their families feel an inner shame and are unable to shake off this albatross.
Some things can’t be learned at work, and most people do not have the time or resources to sit and study at home. For Kingdom work, Cambodians find it very expensive and impractical to spend three years at a seminary to gain a diploma.
Praise be to God, whose power has never failed. In May, the local government invited AsiaCMS’s Indonesian partner agency to meet to discuss a new project. This time God was opening two projects for us, one in central Jakarta and another in East Jakarta.

Garry Chapman illustrates that marriages can be seen through the four seasons of winter, fall, summer and spring.
As described by Chapman, winter and fall are the most challenging seasons, which require an important strategy to care for marriages.
It took some ingenuity, teamwork and a few kindhearted souls to rebuild a house that was destroyed by the earthquake in Nepal in April last year. And after just 24 working days, Uttam Bahadur Tamang’s family of five now have a roof over their heads, and an earthquake-resistant one at that.
In the latest issue of our South Asia regional newsletter, we share the amazing story of Milan Kumar Magar, who came to faith from a challenging background and home environment in Nepal.
Today he and his wife Mitung Seng Hkawn of Myanmar serve the Lord in Nepal, and they are blessed with a girl (Kripa) and a boy (Timothy).
