Pastor Suresh leaves behind more than dust as he travels by motorcycle on the arduous roads that snake through villages high in the mountains of Nepal.
The snow-capped crest of Mount Everest often keeps him company as he climbs higher. He stops at one village, merely a small grouping of mud, stone and tin homes, to give school materials to a barefoot child in need. He stops in another to read the Bible and pray for a sickly elderly woman.
“Many people had sickness and evil spirits, says Suresh, “We prayed for them and after God’s healing they have believed and become Christians.”
Suresh leaves behind compassion and kindness to an isolated people.
“CICM is committed to reach the unreached people, says Dr. Ajai Lall, CICM Director and Founder. “These areas have different languages. They have different ethnic backgrounds. These areas are difficult. It is best…to train Nepalis to reach Nepal.”
“I have to go long distances for ministry. With the help of CICM I have a motorcycle and I am able to maintain it,” adds Suresh.
But even with the motorcycle and hours of rough travel, Suresh can not always get to some of the villages clinging to the mountainsides. He has to go on foot, his small black backpack filled with ministry tracks and his Bible.
Down in the valley where his village is located, next to a brick factory that belches acrid smoke during the six-month dry season, Suresh and his family have a small shop and a mill for wheat and rice.
Workers from the brick factory stop by to purchase small items, “As they come to buy, I communicate the Gospel to the brick workers (many of whom are young children).”
CICM pastors, like Suresh, plant the Gospel in some of the hardest places in the world. Places that are physically hard to reach with people who are spiritually hardened against the Gospel. Pastor Suresh is witness for Christ to the people of his culture. Through his ministry work, he shows them that Christ’s love can reach them even at the ends of the earth.
Please prayerfully consider a donation to CICM’s Church Planting Ministry to aid Gospel carriers, like Suresh, in their work. Through CICM church planters, we are able to bring the knowledge of Christ to those all over the world and work to faithfully fulfill the Great Commission. We thank you for your kindness, generosity and support of the ministry of CICM.
