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.

History and Goals

The Rich Soil of Nepal

UPDATE MARCH 2019

  • Raj reports that the church continues grow in numbers every week with 61 new people waiting to be baptized.
  • Raj reports that a group of gypsies were camped in their area and they went to visit them.  One of the women got delivered of a devil by Urmila.
  • We are doing another teaching series for church leaders on Abiding in Jesus Christ.  The purpose is to motivate the leaders to establish good Word study habits.
  • Every week people keep coming to ABC Church for spiritual help!  They are really making a difference in western Nepal.
  • There are a couple of women leaders who are coming to the forefront of ABC Church.  They are leaders in house meetings and prayer. They were included in the group of young pastors we taught this past week. Go God!

UPDATE FEBRUARY 2019

Raj reports that the church continues grow in numbers every week.

He says that he has translated the Pastor’s School teachings into Nepal and is using them to disciple his people.

Raj is going to adopt the new format of our Power Prayer meetings to his church. Urmila was very excited to hear of the new format. I’m expecting great things!

Raj reports that ABC Church is getting a reputation for signs, wonders and miracles.  People are actually bringing their sick and demonized people to the church for healing and deliverances.  Raj says they bring them in and pray over them until they are healed and delivered.  It's the power of God in action that is drawing Hindus from around the area to God's House.

The Lord gave Raj an idea to be able to support the young pastors who are struggling financially to full time pastor their house churches.  They are going into goat and chicken farming.  Raj inherited about an acre of land and he has donated it to the church for this project.  The proceeds from this farm will support the pastors while they build their churches. 

 

Raj is now preparing to do another Pastor's School with another class of students.

Raj has reported that the pastors are struggling with their quiet time, reading the Word, intimacy, et cetera.  We are talking about doing a class for them to encourage and teach about intimacy. 

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.

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.
