The Gospel of John for the Most Populated Area

Gospel of John project

My heart is overwhelmed with the joy of publishing, distributing, and supplying the Ancient Path booklet in the Southeastern language of Nepal. This is the first gospel literature ever printed in the Tharu Language. Tharu is spoken by more than 80% of the people living in the most populated area of Nepal.—Bijaya

God has worked miraculously to lead Bijaya to be the translator of this gospel tract into Tharu. Now that this project is complete, he and his team are laboring vigorously to publish the Gospel of John in the Tharu language for the first time.

The Writer of the Word Is Present

As a part of this translation process, Bijaya has been visiting 11 pastors in the southeastern region of Nepal who are all native speakers of Tharu. On his recent tour, Bijaya distributed literature to them, gave them manuscripts of the Gospel  for editing, and encouraged them that God’s Word had the power to convert the soul and it could work long after pastors had left the readers’ presence because the Writer of the Word Himself would be present with it.

Reading Tharu Literature

Healed from Mental Illness

Then one of those 11 pastors shared his testimony. He was mentally ill for three years. He had to sell his land for the unsuccessful treatment. Then some pastors and believers came to visit him and prayed for him. They also gave him some literature. He was healed miraculously, but he was not moving out of his bed. He knew he was well, but was just lying on his bed.

There He Read the Word

There he read the Word, “If any would not work, neither should he eat.” Then he thought that that verse was speaking to him. He had not been working for three years, yet he was eating. Then he felt convicted and went out to give water to his cattle in the field. People tried to catch him thinking he went crazy again and was running away. But he spoke for the first time after a long time, saying that he was in good health and not running away. The next day he went to plough his field and back to his normal life. The written Word gave him new life in Christ. Now he serves as a pastor in a village.

Actually, Bijaya said that this man encouraged him and they gladly prayed together for the Gospel of John project in the Tharu language.

The Most Neglected Area

The southeastern part of Nepal is the most neglected area in terms of the gospel. According to statistics, in one district there are 700,000 people, but only 500 known believers. This is one of the least reached ends of the earth, and Tharu is the most common language in this area. Let’s pray that God would progress the Gospel of John project and save souls through His written Word.

Bijaya and his team want to print at least 100,000 copies of the translated Gospel of John when it’s finished. And it only costs 10 American cents ($.10) to print one copy of the Gospel of John with a colorful cover! You can be apart of getting God’s Word into the hands of Tharu speaking unbelievers by giving to this project below.


Bijaya and his wife Bimala are faithful believers who engage in evangelism to remote villages in Nepal, where they share the gospel with hungry souls.
