SAIMON SAWOD SHIBA, NEPAL – October 2020
Greetings and blessings in the name of our Lord God, Jesus Christ!
I am very grateful to God for the past month that I have been able to serve Him in many places. In the midst of so many challenges, difficulties, and hardships, the kingdom of God is still advancing. Life is precious, and I want to spend all of my time serving Him. This month, here were some of my highlights:
-To renovate Barara church: I am really so thankful to God for the opportunity He gave me to do some renovations for this church. It gave me so much joy, and it was a great experience to make something new for the Lord.
– To lead the church: As we know, the church is the house of God; it should never be closed, no matter what plight comes. But since the virus situation has become worse now, we are compelled to close the building. However, our service to the people of God is continuing, despite the challenges it can bring.
– To comfort a bereaved family: We lost a member of our congregation this month. I was able to minister to the sorrowing family, spending three days with them to help them through the process of their grief.
Although there is a fearful global situation right now, we as believers receive strength from God to help us to overcome the obstacles that arise. I am thankful for this time that is building my faith and drawing me closer to Him.
