Empowering women through training

In Nepal, leadership positions are dominated by men. Even churches outside of the main cities are not spared this trend. Given this scenario, we thank God for sustaining us to train and equip women from various denominations throughout the country.

The participants travelled for two days and some walked for 12 hours to catch the bus to come to the training centre. Many participants are the wives of church leaders, but had never set foot into a bible training centre. It was their first opportunity to be trained and equipped for mission work.

Dr Saggu: Two milestones and a whole new world

Saggu.CMS_Inside_300x217

Dr Abraham Saggu was born into a Hindu family in a remote village in south India. After his father passed away, his mother came to faith in Christ and eventually became a “bible woman.”

The only child in the family, Saggu was attending church for a year and thought he was living out life as a Christian until a divine appointment one night. He was at home when he overheard his mother sharing the gospel with an elderly lady. Among other things, his mother asked the neighbour, “Where will you spend your eternity if you die tonight?”

In November 2016, the National Mission Commission of Nepal launched a livelihood development programme for women living in the slums of Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal.

The purpose of this programme was to equip women who lived in marginalised communities with skills that would enable them to eventually start a tailoring business for sustainable and dignified livelihood.

Acute need to address youth issues

Acute.CMS_Inside_300x217

It is a privilege to serve the poor and marginalised. The last four months of serving in partnership with the local church and community has provided me tremendous opportunities for sharing Christ in different parts of Nepal.

It was wonderful to see more than 170 young people and pastors from 14 local churches participating in a conference on “Youth & Addiction” in Makawanpur in October.

Joy of equipping home-grown leaders

Joy.CMS_Inside_300x217

Teaching and training can be both a challenging and an exhilarating task, especially when it has to be juggled with general administrative duties.

As the founding dean of the Nepal Theological Academy (NTA) in Kathmandu, I can testify to this. But praise God for his faithfulness; NTA celebrated its first anniversary on Oct 21, 2016. We invited our new board secretary to preach to our students. There was also a cultural show.

Extending God’s love in an enduring way

 House_Ram_Inside

By Ram Prasad Shrestha

The Bible says there are only three things that endure – faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love.

Providing a roof over someone’s head is an enduring way of extending God’s love. The National Mission Commission of Nepal (NMCN) is thankful to the Lord for enabling it to complete six earth-bag houses for victims of the devastating earthquake in Nepal last year.
