Church Day at Covenant

Kirk here…

Yesterday (Saturday) was church day in Nepal. Under the Hindu monarchy Saturday was the only day the believers were allowed to meet and that is still the traditional day for church. We had an awesome day! I preached on the Sovereignty of God in every facet of our life. From our very formation in the womb (Ps.139), to when and where we live (Acts 17:26) and most importantly to our Salvation in Christ (Jn.6:44, Phil.2:12-13, Ro.9:16). Finally, we looked at God’s Sovereignty over our circumstances and our enemies (Job, 2Chron.20). The presence of God was very strong and many wanted prayer when we were done. One Hindu woman was present and came for prayer weeping. She wanted prayer for her son who is (I think I understood correctly) on drugs. We prayed for her as well that God would open the eyes of her heart to understand the Gospel and receive Christ as Savior. Please keep her in your prayers that God would do just that.

All in all we are doing great other than being a little cold at night. Well, a lot cold actually! However today it is raining and everyone says that is the sign that almost immediately it will warm up quite a bit. Like tomorrow immediately. Something to do with a jet stream shift. Please pray they are right!!!

The children are all doing well and Will is fitting right in. They have worn him out playing football (soccer) for two days straight. It is so precious to be with them. Every morning early and every evening they gather in the basement to have devotionals and worship. Amit the worship leader at CCF usually leads, as do others, and the sound of their little voices comes all through the building. It is a little taste of heaven I think.

On the Bible school front we are gearing up to start probably the last week of January.

Well I will go for now. I hope to post some pictures soon. Please keep us lifted up in prayer. We sense it every day!

    O the memories… Makes me homesick… God bless you guys. And they are ALWAYS right on the weather thingee. Those patterns have been set for thousands of years and they know them well. One day Pramita and I were walking somewhere and I said we should have brought an umbrella because the skies were very dark and clouds were heavy. She said, “O It’s not going to rain.” How can you be so sure? It’s not going to rain on this day. She was right! “I know these things,” is a favorite saying for them.

      Yes “A little bit of heaven, I think ,too!” There’s nothing like the sound of little children joyfully praising God that brings my own joy. “From the mouths of babes He has ordained praise.”

      Love you guys! My heart is there, too!! Tell everyone Kent and I said hello. We send our love.
