ABC Church in Nepal

Mission Statement

Pastors Chetraj (Raj) Joshi and Urmila Lama with their children live in Lamki, Nepal.  They minister to the believers in Lamki and to believers in a mountain village several hours away.


 

  • Raj and Urmila Joshi are pastors of the largest church in the Lamki area of Nepal.  They started with 5 women and now have over 500 people…and growing!
  • BWC came alongside the Joshis in 2016 and have watched the amazing things God has done and is doing with this faith-filled and faithful group of people.  Simple faith does mighty things!

History and Goals

The Rich Soil of Nepal

THE FARM PROJECT - STARTED DECEMBER 2019

  • ABC Church is building a farm operation that will fund the young pastors so they don’t have to get secular jobs and can devote themselves to the Word and to prayer for their churches.
  • Raj has observed that the pastors who are full time in their ministries have the strongest churches.  He wants to use his land (which he inherited) to provide income and provisions for the young pastors.

LATEST NEWS AND PRAYER REQUESTS JULY 2020:


Raj and the team made the arduous journey to the mountains and reached 3 out of the 4 villages they wanted to reach.  I’ll read you a report of the journey.  This journey was a 36 hour hike high into the mountains and was very dangerous as they went into the wilderness where there are tigers.  (Photos are under Mission Reports.)\

JULY 2020 MOUNTAIN TRIP REPORT

Flooding is happening in the Lamki, Nepal area.  Raj has reached out to the Church for prayer for his people as they do not have sturdy homes to withstand flooding.

In June the money for the cow was sent and Raj is in the process of procuring the cow in about 20 days due delays with coronavirus restrictions. Meanwhile, he is going to go ahead and get some chickens and a couple of goats to begin the farm. They are farming vegetables now.

They cannot meet in their church, so Raj goes to 30 houses to feed his sheep, which makes for a very long day for him.

  • Raj and the team are planning another trip to the mountains to leave a few of the young pastors there to build a church in 60 days time.  (September time frame).
  • Pray for more opportunities to sow seeds of salvation in their area and new churches planted during this mountain trip!
  • Raj has been to the mountain, so the cow project is still in work.
