Dear Friends, January 4, 2018
We have an opportunity to redirect the future course of Nepal with the gospel in the year 2018. Last October the Nepalese government installed a law that bans evangelism. This law will take effect on August 15th of 2018. In response to this legal change, the Nepalese church has abruptly changed the date of Kathmandu Gospel Festival from the end of November 2018 to the end of March 2018.
In early January, our team will start training 50 church leaders for evangelism and follow through. These 50 leaders will then train two people in the following week and this effort will continue with each newly trained disciple-maker training two new people each week until the week of festival. In this way, we will have produced more than 50,000 Nepalese Christians who are competent in evangelism and follow through. Although the law may prohibit public proclamation of the gospel, there is no law that will stop the compassionate sharing of the Good News through meaningful human relationships. Even if the anticonversion law takes effect after our festival is over, the Nepalese church will continue to grow through the work of these 50,000 trained disciple-makers.
This whole process of disciple-making culminating in the Kathmandu Gospel Festival costs approximately $100,000. With the festival now occurring in March, I only have 3 months left to raise the funds. The fundamental problem of Nepal can be solved by the gospel. As a believer in Christ, you have the solution to the problem of Nepal. Will you provide the solution to Nepal with DCMI through prayer and a financial gift? DCMI is praying that the Lord will provide 100 churches/Christian businesses and professionals to support this cause with $1000 each. Even if you are unable to give $1000, the Lord will multiply whatever amount you give to help transform a nation through the gospel. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Together for harvest; hope for Nepal!
