Esther Joins Our Widow's Home

Esther.jpg

Esther came to us from Lamjung. She was married at 17 and her husband was a preacher/evangelist in a church in Pokhara. When she was delivering their first baby, her husband was traveling by bus from Chitwan to be with her. There was an accident and the husband was killed. Esther and her son, Agape, were taken in by her Hindu in-laws. As usual in these cases, Esther was blamed for their son’s death and the in-laws and relatives heaped abuse on her. She heard of Mercy Mission from one of our teachers who is a relative. She was in a very depressed state and it took just a few days for her to realize that she was in a very safe, loving place. She is very happy now and plans to stay here and raise her son to continue her husband’s ministry.

Village Pastor Needs

Pastor Philip lives east of the Nepal border in a tea garden area. He has helped plant four different churches in his area. He is a hard-working and faithful servant of God. He wants to increase the size of his barn and add more cows and goats so he is better able to provide for his family. His need is $3000. Designate your gift for "Church Planter Support."

This is Pastor Philip's church. We held a one-day program for the women. All these women work in the local tea garden.

Pastor Lila and his wife and children still live in a tin shed since they lost their house in the earthquake. We need $5000 to help them rebuild their house in the village.
