India Nepal Bhutan Quick Update

by alan.young on November 13, 2011

Hey All,
Just want to give a quick update…our internet connections have been extremely slow or non at all. We had a very powerful Agape International Pastors/Leaders conference the first week we were here in Siliguri, West Bengal India where we had 600 hundred Pastors and Leaders/Church workers come from Northern India, Nepal and Bhutan. There was a mighty move of God upon all of us, we were overwhelmed with His love for us as His children and His urgent call to reach the unreached with the amazing Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
From there Chris Reynolds and I went to Nepal where we ministered in a Nepali church (the Pastor a former Hindu is 34 years old, saved at the age of 16 dying from liver failure, a local Christian asked if he could pray for him to Jesus for healing. He was instantly healed. He has started 34 churches since then and has more vision than ever and a deep deep burden to reach his Nepali people with the hope of the Gospel).
The next day we ministered in a Bhutanese Refugee camp church. The Pastor is 28 years old. All I can say is…I was totally blown away by this young man of God and how the Lord is so mightily using him to reach his people with the hope of the Gospel. Moved to tears.
We then went back to India (Sikkim) where we met up with Chris Harrison and the rest of the team. They ministered in a church the night before and then we all did the next night we were there. All I can say at this point something very significant will be birth from those couple of days there.

This picture is from a Underground “Gathering” taken this morning in B.

Then we journeyed to Jaigaon, a boarder town to Bhutan. When I say “journeyed” please let your imagination take over :) We spent 4 nights in this city and ministered in a couple of churches and met with the leaders who will be heading up our School of Ministry. The first one starts January 4th, 2012 and then in September later in the year. From these schools come on-fire equipped empowered church planters! Also, met a man of God who is a local Pastor and has six underground churches in Bhutan. We will also be starting a School of Ministry with him for his India/Bhutan churches. He told us that 80% of those who turn to the Lord from Hinduism in this the Indian Sub-Cont. is because of signs and wonders, miraculous healings including his own sister, who after years of going to gurus and priest his own father finally gave in and allowed him to take her for a couple of weeks…and then, well you know-complete and total healing and deliverance by the Lord.
We then left for Bhutan. We are still here for two more nights…I cannot say much for now and will most likely give update either back in India or end of this next week when back home. For now, know this, the Lord is truly moving in this beautiful land of beautiful people.
Love you all. Thanks so very much for continued prayer support!
