MISSIONARY NEWS – THE FINK FAMILY – Nepal is a beautiful, multiethnic, landlocked country that is 80% Hindu and only 1.5% Christian. The political, economic, and religious environment of the country is volatile. Every day, about 1,500 Nepalese men and women leave to find work in India, Thailand, or the Middle East, often gone for 2-3 years. Many do not survive in their pursuit of work. In addition, there is great fear due to the many earthquakes. Please pray that the people might find hope in the true Prince of Peace! Tim and Scott ministered in Nepal Baptist Theological College for 2 weeks with 14 students and 4 faculty members. Although they taught 5 hours each day, they also had the privilege of preaching in 4 of the church plants within the city of Kathmandu and the mountains outside the city. An older woman who had been a Buddhist her entire life, came to Christ! Between the 3 churches, over 20 people raised hands asking for prayer that the Lord would use them as a bolder but more loving witness to their loved ones and neighbors. Most of these students come from difficult backgrounds. One was deaf; however, he persevered in his studies in an incredible way. Some students are either misunderstood or rejected at home for their faith. Pray for these precious believers! Please pray also for the school as they are going through some serious financial hardships. Their future is uncertain; pray that the Lord would graciously provide for their every need.
