This week I 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 almost no industry of any kind. When the seasons are favorable, farming is the about the only thing people are able to do to subsist.
Your prayers are greatly appreciated for the men who we will be sending up to Manang. The first Pastor moves to Chemje (Chame) Manang in about 3 or 4 weeks.
Our first Pastor heading up to Chemje is Dhanla. His wife will be joining him in about 3 months.
By the end of March, we will be sending another Pastor and his wife to Manang also. This couple will be settling just south of Dhanla below Nache. (See satellite images)
Your prayers for these couples and the mission are greatly appreciated!
