The Death of a Father: A Letter from Bijaya
Editor’s Note: The following is a letter from Bijaya to Live Global after the passing of his earthly father. This has been left in its original form, minus minor edits for security.
We would like to thank you very much for your prayers for us and the ministry. It’s really been a very hard time for us as my father passed away suddenly who remained a Hindu till his last breath. I shared the Gospel even in his hospital bed.
So he passed away in [a big city] and I drove his body in the back seat of my car to where my parents lived. It took the whole night to drive 200 kms. The Lord kept me from the possible persecution from my family and all the hundreds of Hindus attending the cremation. I was a only believer there but they did not force me to observe the Hindu rituals of cremation and mourning.
I helped carry my father’s body to the cremation site, but was unbearable for me to see the cremation. It’s been a shock for me to see the deaths of my father, both physical and spiritual. Being a communist for his life, he never responded to the Gospel. But I had some opportunities to share Christ and Him Crucified to some souls during that time.
One of them is a man with no legs. He was walking by using his hands and he gladly took a Tract. Then he started to read it aloud!!
Another elderly mans from eastern mountains came to our church in Kathmandu in search of a Bible. So we provided him one with proper reading glass.
Many efforts were made in past months to proclaim the Glorious Gospel.
