In the first two weeks of November, Pastor Paul Rai and Pastor Dan Evenhuis will be visiting Nepal on a fact-finding and presence ministry trip. We are looking to build long-term partnerships with local pastors and NGO’s in Nepal. We will be partnering with Baptist Mission Australia in setting up long-term partnerships for mission and outreach by indigenous Napalese people.
Some of the trip highlights will be:
- Visiting two Nepalese NGO’s who are already doing great outreach work in Nepal
- Encouraging local pastors, especially those in more rural areas serving minority people groups
- Encouraging a bunch of children and teens who have experienced homelessness
- Visiting a Bible College supporting church planting and rural pastors.
How you can get involved:
Walk with us:
Your welcome to join us for the walk. However, it is a 1,000m ascent and there are no places along the way if you want to drop-out. So it’s all in if you’re joining us. You’ll need a reasonable level of fitness.
We’re welcoming donations to support the ministry in Nepal. Half of what is received for this walk will go towards covering the cost of the trip. The other half will be shared with ministries within Nepal (we’ll report back with what your donation went towards).
Use this form to make a donation towards the 'Mountain Climb for Nepal'. Alternatively, you can make a direct bank transfer using the following info (please add reference 'Mountain Climb').
