Thank you so much for your fervent prayer and support for the Koinonia Church Network in Nepal. As a result,
the church planting ministry is going smoothly. In many parts of Nepal, the church planters are training
and the church planting ministry is growing.
The Koinonia Network Expands
The Koinonia network is continuing to identify new target locations and each existing church is still working to plant new churches in these areas. By God’s grace, the work continues, fellowships are being formed, buildings are being constructed, and Jesus Christ is being worshipped!
But as with many church planting missions, their efforts are not without adversity.
One Church Experiences Adversity
As construction is almost over with one new church building in a strategic area of Nepal, a neighbor complained to the government. This halted the construction work on this building for the time being. They have to wait until the problem is solved.
Not only does the building project need to stop, but the individuals worshipping in this body of believers experienced personal threats and harm. But, the Lord has given grace upon grace to this church.
“Instead We Persevere”
According to the leader of this church, they, by the Holy Spirit, have chosen not to react poorly to this adversity, but to instead move the church to a rented building and to continue serving the Lord as usual.
We have not reacted; instead we persevere. This has left a good legacy among the surrounding community. Thank God that even from that incident the gospel was spread in the community that Christians are doing good.
Amen. Join us in praying for this specific body of believers and their neighbors who need to hear the Good News.
