THE WORK IN NEPAL…
NEPAL – “Madan” is the national leader for the Nepalese Christian Youth Movement. In his native Nepal, he is our primary connection with the regional training movement in South Asia.
Madan was born into the highest class of the Nepalese caste system. After coming to Christ, he suffered tremendous persecution and eventually banishment from his family.
He grew in his discipleship and rose to a national level of prominence for his efforts in sharing the gospel and training young Christians to serve the restricted nation.He is the owner of Prince Guest House and Tours in Kathmandu. His business success has given rise to hiring many young disciples and getting them an education at the country’s bible college.
Check out these videos of Nepalese leaders reflecting on our trainings.
Madan has been running a BAM guest house and tour business in the capital city and is working to understand the potential for greater collaboration among the many businessmen, promoting one-on-one evangelism.
A February 2023 ministry leader training is planned for three outlying districts. Although this is dangerous on many fronts, MissionConnect is poised to fund and lead in this formidable work. MissionConnect leadership will remain in Kathmandu and begin training local Christian businessmen on BAM (Business As Mission) fundamentals in hopes of bringing some long term sustainability to the evangelism and discipleship efforts in the region.
Huge Opportunity for Fall 2023!
Nepal and Myanmar are restricted countries which regularly persecute Christians, Christian Workers and Christian Churches – especially outside the main capital cities. Typically, the further out from the city you travel the greater the hold the local Hindu priests (Nepal) and local government officials (Myanmar) pressure the church underground. The outcry of Church leaders and Christian leaders has been for more training in evangelism, discipleship and sustainability. Currently, the many of the “sent” workers last less than 2-3 years out in the outlying districts due to a lack of sustainability from those few churches able to send funding.
MissionConnect is moving into Nepal and Myanmar with strategies to inaugurate sustainability models in the main cities in order to build in-country funding possibilities. We are planning to hold a Business-As Mission (BAM) congress which invites a consortium of local Christian businessmen and local Christian Church personnel. In these all day seminars, we share about the working models of sustainability which are successfully operating worldwide. In our breakout session, a model is built with local culture in mind -resulting in a decision to move forward forming a local foundation in which funds are derived from the foundation team and additional training is invoked on day two. Our ministry instructs “local ownership” strategies and helps to design the propulsion of financial stream funding which ends in a generational giving model.
Ultimately – the success of our ministry is people like Silas Sashi, who would like to continue to go to the remotest villages in the high-mountain districts in Nepal to share the gospel and plant churches which can remain due to the sustainability piece. Silas is an accomplished evangelist who only lacks sustainability as a means to be more consistent with his trips to the far reaches of his native Nepal.
The trip is planned for September 10 – October 4, 2023. Of the total cost of $15,500, we still need to raise $8000. Click here if you would like to give toward this crucial event.
