Mission Statement

Pastors Chetraj (Raj) Joshi and Urmila Lama Joshi.their daughter, Sushan, their son, Sushanken, and now they've just been blessed with a new baby girl, Shimrith, that was born in January 2020 and they  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.
  • Here are pictures of the work they are currently doing on the farm.

SECOND QUARTER NEWS 2020

Like everyone else in the world, Nepal is also in lockdown.  They are very strict about it with no one allowed outside.  Police are beating anyone they find outside.

Raj reported that two pastors were arrested for doing livestreaming church services.

The Cow Project that we are involved in is still in work progress, but we can't transfer the money until after the pandemic mess is over and the banks open their lobbies.  Raj says the banks are closed there, too.  We hope to complete the Cow Project in May.  If you want to sow into this project, please contact us.

  • Continue to pray for Pastor Raj, Urmila and the children as they are targets of the enemy.
  • Pray for wisdom as Raj leads not only his church, but eight house churches as well.
  • Pray for the two new hosue churches being established.  Up to ten house churches.
  • Pray for funds to come for completing the farm project to support the young pastors in their house churches.

PASTOR RAJ'S RADIO SHOW - STARTED LATE 2017

Raj now has a Christian radio show in western Nepal.  The audience is the believers in the newly established churches. The radio show is helping and train the new believers in the other districts that the young pastors are in.  The format is simply:  They sing hymns.  They have a Bible teaching from Raj and they have testimonies from believers to help encourage others.  The testimonies are more effective for the uneducated villagers who can relate more to the personal testimonies.  The radio show reaches the churches farthest away with teachings and encouragment.
