ABC Church in Nepal

Mission Statement

Pastors Chetraj (Raj) Joshi and Urmila Lama Joshi.their daughter, Sushan, and their newborn son, Sushanken, live in Lamki, Nepal.  They minister to the believers in Lamki and to believers in a mountain village several hours away.   ABC Church is now the largest Christian Church in Nepal.  ABC Church continues to make 12-hour trips up to the mountain villages, where they have never even heard the name of Jesus, and bring these sweet people to the knowlege of Jesus Christ.  Signs and wonders are following them as people are getting healed and delivered from demons and being born again and brought into the Kingdom of God.  We are honored and blessed to be a part of this very important work in Nepal.

LATEST PRAYER REQUESTS

  • Pray for wisdom and strength of spirit and mind for Raj and Urmila as they lead over 500 people closer to Jesus.
  • Pray for the young pastors to return to their churches and for provisions to be there as they work in the Kingdom.
  • Agree with Raj for the spiritual maturity of his congregation and future leaders.
  • Pray for the protection of the church leaders in the volatile environment of Nepal’s government attitude towards Christianity.

UPDATE OCTOBER 2018

  • I heard from Raj over the last four weeks. He reports that everyone is well there including the young pastors.
  • He says that God is taking them to new levels spiritually.  They are excited about that.
  • Raj reports that the ABC Church is overflowing with new people and new believers!
  • They hope to baptize 20 to 30 people in the next few weeks.
  • He says that God is growing the gift of prophecy in him.  Awesome!  He is pursuing the gifts!
  • Right now his focus is to edify his church and to make mature believers.  He says that this is a challenge for him.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2018:

  • ABC Church is running at 500 people, which has Pastor Raj extremely busy.  They have a powerful prayer ministry, which he built based on our training classes.
  • Some of the young pastors were forced to abandon their churches to find work in India to support themselves.  Difficult financial times are a reality.  They are now working in Delhi and attending the Delhi Church.  There are now eight house churches, down from 11.
  • Please keep Pastor Raj in your prayers for wisdom, revelation and strength in mind, spirit and body as he has so much responsibility.
  • Hank, his son, is growing like a weed and the rest of the family are doing well.  
  • They are continuing to pray for Pastor Micki's trip to Nepal to help teach leaders and discipleship training classes.


JUNE 2018 NEWS: ABC Church has expanded yet again, this time with a covered porch as an “overflow” area.  They are working to get the technology set up for them to participate in the worship and hearing the messages.


As of May 2018 - The Church in Nepal is every growing!


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.
