More than a Warm Blanket

John Piper says, “As Christians, we care about all suffering, especially eternal suffering.”

Live Global partner Bijaya and his evangelism team in Nepal agree with this statement and take it to heart as they work throughout the remote villages in their country.

A Blanket Ministry

A blanket ministry is a profound way for Bijaya and his team to reach the hearts and lives of people during the difficult winter season in the mountains. They gather hundreds of blankets and drive them to remote villages in the mountains where they distribute them to people who need something warm.

On their most recent trip, they delivered 260 blankets in four different villages. Of those who received blankets, new mothers were some of the most grateful!

But to give out a warm blanket to relieve earthly suffering without considering the person’s eternal destiny would be a great disservice.

The Best Gift of the Gospel

By God’s grace and provision, Bijaya never neglects to give out gospel tracts and Bibles and to preach the good news of Jesus whenever he makes a trip.

Bijaya said, “Every one of them got copies of God’s Word. It was really great to show God’s love to them in both ways.”

Most times Bijaya and his team share the good news with people who have never heard it—people who come from many different backgrounds.

About Evangelism to Remote Villages

From handing a gospel tract to a construction worker on the world's highest road to entering an unknown Hindu village home to share the good news, Bijaya and his wife Bimala are faithful evangelists. They endure crazy bus rides, dangerous roads, long journeys, and awkward encounters to do the Lord's work in some of the most remote villages in Nepal.

They follow the Spirit's leading as they travel from place to place, meeting people hungry for hope along the way. They deliver God's Word to people who have never heard the name of Jesus and they encourage the precious few believers they find along the way.

They face many hardships, but God is blessing their work and providing for their needs as they share the good news of Jesus Christ.

Meet the Leaders: Bijaya and Bimala

Bijaya and Bimala are faithful evangelists to those who don't yet know Christ in Nepal. They, alongside their team, are constantly trekking to the most remote villages to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Their primary focus is to evangelize people who are unreached with the gospel. Bijaya and Bimala combine providing aid (like blankets or food) with preaching and handing out gospel literature and Scripture, and it has made for a great and effective ministry model.

Bijaya and Bimala also occasionally make trips with the purpose of training, teaching, and encouraging new believers in Christ with God's Word.
