Would you please join in prayers with us!

Working in Nepal has been full of adventures. It is always questions that I ask what is next? Finally came out of the children home-road challenge and move to the next one. We live and work in a country, which is hostile against the minority, especially towards Christians. Everything we go through we know in that all things works for the good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose.

Paul’s words also remind me of 2 Corinthian 4:8-9 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. We have not experienced a hostile environment like Paul, but still, those words are full of encouragement as we live and work in Nepal. Every time we go through a tough time, we get to grow and put our trust in Jesus. He is our strength and shield. The anti-conversion law has empowered an extreme opponent of the gospel and try to limit the voice of the churches.

Our present challenge is the same neighbor who caused the uproar and moved the road to our side is giving us problems again. Now he has also bought the property next to the children home new building and their playground. It used to be a hill, but he pulled down the mud and is now making a large wall structure next to the playground. We have agreed on paying him $3500 to finish off the wall and the drainage, but we do not know if he will do it until it is finished. He cannot be trusted.

It is still rainy season around here and the mud from the same mountain has been used to fill in a lower property behind the children home. It has flooded our property and the first floor of where the children have lived before they moved last year. It has been complicated, as laws have very little power. The authorities do not care as long as someone bribes them, so our voices are not heard.

Our approach at this moment is praying, fasting, and asking that the Lord will deal with both of these men. We have watched God take out people before, so we know He can do things that we cannot. Currently, we cannot afford to put at least $15.000 into drainage, wall, and repairs for the damage the neighbors are doing, since there has been one thing after another. We are financially drained.

We also need to put a wall around our property, as it protects the land. If we do not do this soon, people can come and claim our property. It is just how this county works.

On the positive side, the emergency steps are coming along. 60% of the bills have been paid and we are grateful for Gods provision for this important project. These steps will be able to hold up in a case on an earthquake or other emergencies.

I would like to ask you to pray with us. I am currently working 12-hour days, just to try to keep things going, but unless God interferes, we are not sure what we can do. Your support means the world to us, so thank you!

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91: 1

Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal and it is 3000 feet high from sea level. Four million people live in this valley. That means people everywhere. City keeps expending and growing. If you came, few years back and visited us whole area would be empty and open land. Not anymore. It is crowded. The study predicts that by 2020 there will be no empty places in the city. The cost of living has gone high. This is an expensive place to live and land prices have gone skyrockets. More houses are coming every day.  Rural village migration has populated city.  It is dream of every Nepalese to have a home in capital city.

Our first children home and ministry base is in the North of Kathmandu city. We have most good neighbors around the children home. They are friendly.  Everyone is different in his or her approach to us according to individual. Some are silent and some are more vocals. Most of our neighbors are not believers. It makes some of our neighbors upset that we are believers. Some of them have told us that we are western religion agents. This is one of the common accusation against Christians in Nepal. According to them, our presences there is to spread the Christianity. Honestly, I only talk about believing in Jesus. We are making disciples for Jesus. We love all our neighbors regardless of their faith. It is not easy to live and run mission base surrounded by non-Christian environment.

Christianity is new in this area. I do not remember meeting any local believers 17-20 years ago.  Today there are good numbers in our area. Some of these people attend our fellowships. All of our neighbors have heard the gospel, but most of them do not believe in Jesus. Off course, we are praying for salvation of our entire village people and showing the Love of God to our people so they can come to the saving knowledge of Jesus.

Month of February I spent most of my time in Nepal doing ministries such as speaking in the churches, teaching in Bible school and meeting individuals.  One of those was a meeting with neighbor who wanted extension of road from our property.   I asked some of you to pray. Thank you so much for your prayers. There are two pieces of land, which connect to each other.  Below is the pictures. In the middle of the property blue print, there is 6-8 feet old stream. In monsoon season, the water flows from there. A couple of village people who have properties behind the children home wanted to build bigger and wider road from ours to their properties.   First according to the law, they cannot just extend wider and bigger road without the approval of both side owners. Second, they also need specific purpose of the extension of road. Third, they cannot just turn a stream in to road. They really need to buy private property and expend it to go to their property. They did not want to pay for it. The people who own the land behind the property there is no road access except walking trails.

The neighbor invited and formed the committee. This included other villagers who have nothing to do with us. He used them to make an uproar against us with lies. Our faith is attacked all the time. Their whole goal was to expend the road by force.  Unfortunately, this has happened before, because they think if they have uproar and come against in masses, they can do it. In the past, many of Christian properties have forcefully occupied. This is how communist came in power and forcefully stole what they wanted from 1995-2006. The law had no power and not respected.

After hearing this, I reached out to the local leaders in the village. First, I talked with ward chairperson, (elected village leader) he said that it was up to us to decide.  According to him that the neighbors could not just decide the extension of the road by taking our property.

Next day, the meeting was scheduled. A handful of people showed up on Thursday and the person who invited the meeting canceled because he expected more people.   He invited the meeting again on Monday. In the meantime, we all kept praying and asking God’s wisdom on this matter.

While I was talking to this person, I felt that I was intimidated and fear hit my heart.  After finishing our talk, I went inside the house, up in my room, and started praying. I started rebuking it and casting it out the spirit behind it. I had to deal with myself and fight the spirit of fear. I realized that I needed to be free from it before I could deal with anyone. I knew it was not with the right intention whatever he was trying to achieve.

Based on the information given to me by some people in the village, which the meeting was not just about road. Some of those people’s plan was to close our church and stop what we are doing.  When I closed my eyes and felt like all the dogs from neighbors’ property were barking at us. I realized that I was in a place of Jeremiah confronting Asar and Baal’s prophets.  I kept praying each day more and more and asked your prayer.

The city is surrounded by strong, extreme demonic strongholds. Pro- Hindu leaders and movements are vocal against Christianity that is not a new thing. We are told by the Social welfare council administration authority of government not to have bible studies and not to let children attend fellowships. Last year one of the Christian church facilities is destroyed in Kathmandu. It takes God’s strength and lot of prayers to run all those ministries.  Already, because of local, government opposition we have moved bible college in down town area

As I met all these people on Monday.  I let them speak for a while.  Two people had already minutes the meeting before people came.  They have written paragraph stating these are the decision we made and down there were no decision written.  I was surprised and it was very evil intent. I asked God to give me right word and wisdom. With respect, I began to speak and kept praying. There was confusion among them. The courage and authority filled me and I sensed God’s power as I spoke and every one kept silent. No one argued with me and I left the meeting without signing any agreement or giving to their demands. At

 Property behind the children home

the end, I decided to give them 10 feet road on the humanitarian ground.  When I needed road in the front I had to pay my neighbor to have it extended 10 feet. I told them if they needed more than they should pay for it.  The condition was that they had to put a wall back as it is now.

Since then  we realized and senses urgency to  buy that land behind the children home.  We cannot buy all of it but at least to the point where we cannot be disturb by this neighbor. He always comes with different plans, like this road.  One person just tried to rally



the whole village against us. We need to buy that land and level the property. Children home property is too small and it gives us threats on every side. We need eight Ana. Per Ana it is $10000 but we will need $ 80’000 US dollar.


At the end of the meeting, each one of them left and I was told that other people who joined the neighbor left him because they thought it was not right.   I just want to thank you so much and appreciate your everyday prayers.  We cannot not do what we are doing without God’s power and strength. Thank you for your prayers.

I read that morning this scripture below and please read it and be blessed.

Psalm 91: Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018 !

Merry  Christmas  and Happy New Year 2018 to all our families and friends! Thank you so much for all your prayers and support to Compassion for Asia in 2017.
We hope that you will have good time with your families and friends in Christmas seasons. Remember that he loves you and you are the reason he came to this world. He cares you and has plan for you. Rejoice that savior is born and who is redeemer for this world.
Luke 2:10-11

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Matthew 1:18-25

This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about : His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.  Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.  But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).  When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.  But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Thank you once again !

Learning to wait on God

This morning God reminded me about waiting on Him and not being in hurry and being patience.  Here is great scripture .
Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD. (Psalm 27:14)
Learning to wait on God and being patience is challenging in these days. It is called instant age. Every thing is now , now and now .  For example people get instant coffee. Instant fast food. It takes less than 3 minutes for popcorn. Pulling money in ATM takes less than a minute. Everything is quick and life runs through remote control. Life seems slow if we have to wait for little bit. We get upset and angry. 

We get disappointment if God does not show in our time frame. We want God to do what we want Him to do . We are asking him to sign our plan instead of waiting on him and be the King and master of our lives.
I was thinking that Jesus did not start his ministry until he was 30 years of age. (Luke 3:23) Moses was in his 80s before seeing burning bush experience (Acts 7:22-30) David was 30 years when he became king even though he was anointed with the oil in his 20s.( 2 Samuel 5:4) Paul spent 3 years in Arabia (Galatians 1: 15-18) after his encounter at Damascus (Acts 9: 1-4)
What a scripture to remember .
“who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

Wait on Him !
