Mission: Possible 6

Ministry for the bold and adventurous! Go where people have never heard the name of Jesus. We are returning to a place we have visited on two previous Evangelic Expeditions and where our “m” now works to continue building relationships. “I have shared some more of the Gospel and explained the (discipleship) guide (we have developed in their native language),” our “m” said after visiting one of our semi-nomadic friends. “It was a nice talk and he is interested, but still have some more distance to trust. He welcomed you to visit again.” When... Read more »

Church Build in Dapcha

Pastor Tej visiting the site of a future church build in central Nepal. Climbing For Christ wired money to Pastor Tej B. Rokka in Nepal on Monday, Oct. 26, 2009 for the purchase of land (photo above) in the mountain village of Dapcha, where a church will be constructed in 2011. There is a population of about 30,000 people in this area and this will be the first Christian church. Pastor Tej's SARA church in Katmandu had raised US$900 to buy land, but still needed US$4,100. “We are praying to buy this land and build a church,” Pastor Tej said in early September 2009.

Serving a patient God in Nepal

I went into Mission: Nepal in May 2009 acknowledging that its success was in God’s hands. But my conviction of this was tested throughout the journey as God continued to teach me to have faith in and reliance on Him. He also challenged me to increase my patience while waiting for the humans required to do the ministry. I realized that these lessons were probably part of God’s agenda for me about a week into the trip. I was waiting for a landlady who had changed a lock on us, when we were trying to deliver a huge (and heavy) water filter in Kathmandu. She told us – and o... Read more »

Special Report: Sky Burial - Dancing with Death

Special Report: Sky Burial - Dancing with DeathThe Hollywood-ization of Buddhism would have you believe that it is a religion of peace, love and virtues, caring for the earth and the creatures in it. “Buddhists look to a smiling Buddha seated on a lotus blossom, while Christians worship a suffering Jesus nailed to a cross,” one Christian analyst wrote. But the dark side of Buddhism is found in its temples and monasteries, and in its sacred paintings, symbols, and ceremonies. Many have never seen these ominous signs, while others (such as 386 million Buddhists in the world) have been blinded to the lies. In a temple in Chi... Read more »
