Land was purchased and funds were delivered during Mission: Nepal 2021 for the construction of the church at Ghapa in the Mid-West district of Rolpa. This is our third church build in Rolpa and ninth in Nepal.
Ghapa is the second church plant from the church at Korchabang, which Climbing For Christ helped build in 2012. Dharmashala (built in 2018) was the first church plant.

Shyam Kumari, the woman in whose house the Ghapa church was originally planted (photo above), and the 70 other members of this church began construction on our latest house of worship on Nov. 11. They worked from morning until evening. “Everyone has been excited, and the work is going on very well,” Kingdom worker Megh Gurung said.
The church’s hope was to have this house of worship completed for CHRISTmas to celebrate the Lord’s birthday inside their new church.
