In 5 weeks WMA team is heading to Nepal, the poorest country in the world. Nepal is the size of Arkansas but with 10 times the population.
In the 21st century Nepal still has highest rate of malnutrition among children. Though it is blessed with exquisite natural beauty and is home to the world’s highest mountain, the people of this country have endured centuries of suffering.
The people of Nepal have followed Hinduism historically worshiping thousands of idols, they have suffered under the communist-style political regime and the decade –long civil war that took tens of thousands of innocent lives. Each year many parts of Nepal are affected by severe droughts which cause famine among the population.
The extreme poverty drew human traffickers who exploit the despair of the families and buy out their children to sell them into sexual slavery.
In 2006 the new government turned the political course of this nation towards democracy. It declared Nepal a secular state, allowed freedom of faith and pronounced Christmas a government holiday.
Since then Christianity has exploded in Nepal growing to more than 2.5 million believers in more than 8,500 churches across the country. Yet, 28 million people in Nepal are still considered unreached.
World Missions Alliance has ministered in Nepal since 2011. On our very first trip we had 1000 Bibles with us for distribution. On the second day our bus got a flat tire. While the driver stopped at a nearby truck stop to fix the flat we decided to give away a few Bibles. What happened next took us by surprise. There were seemingly a few people around, but as we started passing out Bibles, suddenly we were surrounded by a large crowd and they all wanted a copy of a Bible. We could have easily given out all thousand copies right there at the truck stop.
One of the first to get a copy was a middle aged man. He thanked us with a big smile and then we watched him take it to his father and son. They carefully opened it started reading together – all three generations.
What an incredible blessing this picture was to all of us. It was God’s vision of the future and His plan for this nation. Neither poverty, not drought, nor forces of darkness can stand against the power of the Word of God.
The spiritual hunger is Nepal is much greater than the lack of food. It is the kind of hunger that can be satisfied for ETERNITY! And we have the power to make the people of Nepal HUNGER NO MORE!
We want to be able to take another 1000 copies with us again. The full Bible is just $5.25/ copy. We have already ordered 151 copies. Will you help us purchase the rest?
We need 45 people who would give a gift of $100 to accomplish this goal!
Five dollars and twenty five cents can buy a latte at Starbucks that will give you a five minute joy. It can also buy the Word of God that will give a desperate person eternal life.
What an incredible power we have through Christ and God’s Word to affect eternity!
We thank you in advance for partnering with World Missions Alliance in this extraordinary mission. The time for Nepal is NOW!
Your partners in the Great Commission,
Chuck and Helen Todd
