"I am wholly undeserving of God's grace. Undeserving of His favor. Undeserving of His love. I am even unworthy to be used for His Glory. Yet, here I am on the Silk Road. How is it possible? How can such a man like me be used?"
Those were my thoughts today as I met with local Gospel workers here in Kathmandu. People who have given up so much (and gained so much more) in service to our King. Foreigner and Nepali alike share in the work to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have never heard in Nepal.
I have to be covert here and not mention any names. However, today I met with a large organization that has a distinct presence in Kathmandu and all across Nepal. I met with someone on their staff who could help with future work along the Silk Road to Tibetan Buddhist peoples in the Himalayas. His expertise and experience is something I will call upon in the future. For today, a relationship was formed and will be kept over email.
Next, I met with a local church pastor here in Kathmandu. He called his church a resource and training church. Their passion is to train local leaders and church planters for the furthering of the Gospel. This pastor was educated, orthodox, and Christ-centered. He introduced me to his staff and we prayed together. Going forward, we will continue to communicate over email and hopefully see a partnership develop between us.
Today was a blessing from God. In my next post, I will go into detail about what I believe the rest of my time in Nepal will be devoted to doing. My goal was to leave the country with one possible contact. I'm leaving with at least two.
So, with that, I officially pronounce the SRM Expedition #1 - Nepal Mission a success!
I want to thank those who sacrificed to make this happen. Your prayers and gifts have not gone unnoticed! The Lord has honored them and will continue to use them in the future!
That's all for now. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face shine upon you and give you peace.
See you next time, travelers!
