JUNE 2022 NEPAL/INDIA
Judith and I thank the Lord for His provision, strength, and increase this year. India Western Conference has increased in the number of churches and continues expanding into different regions. We now have IPHC work in two new states: Rajasthan and Gujarat. Tony Misquitta, our leader in India, held several pastors' meetings recently. Twenty-five pastors attended one of these meetings, and they were all farming to support their families and ministry. Another district meeting included time for prayer, sharing the Word, and fellowship. Tony helped pastors in baptizing seven new converts to the Lord.
Nepal: We are still praising the Lord for the miracle of being a legal church organization in Nepal. Ashok Lama is the Chairman of the Board in Nepal. He has a National Board with leaders in each province totaling 75. Pastor Asta Maya Lama (not family to Ashok) has accepted the National Women Pastor's leadership. We currently have around 60 female pastors.
We thank the Lord for being able to lead six pastor meetings in several provinces in Nepal during March. This resulted in adding 100 churches, giving us around 700 churches in the last five years. We give all glory to God for the great things He has done.
Chase Granstaff has three Schools of Ministry up and running. This is an excellent foundation for our established pastors, emerging pastors, and leaders. Frank and Mandy Moore, IPHC's short-term missionaries, traveled with us for two weeks and were a tremendous blessing.
We are grateful for the expansion of the People-to-People children's ministry, where 35 children are currently enrolled in the program. These are primarily children of pastors, and the funds assist with education fees.
The Lord has done incredible things, and He has now enabled us to raise over $400,000 for the Nepal IPHC Headquarters. Our goal is $500,000, which will allow us to furnish the building and prepare a motorcycle parking area. We are grateful to God for each donor and for the IPHC Antioch Grant.
Thank you for all you do! Only as the body of Christ works together can we accomplish the Great Commission. Your prayers, giving, and encouragement are a tremendous blessing.
