There are these three families, all from the same small village in Nepal. Their access to technology was limited, if any at all. There have been no outsiders who have traveled to visit them, and the closest Christian and church are hours away at best. For some, this sounds like a Utopia but this Utopia also meant they have lived in a spiritual void, completely cut off from the gospel.
These families decided to leave their village and venture toward a bigger city. They needed money and resources to take care of their family. As they journeyed, they came across Isaac, one of our missionaries. They talked, drank tea and Isaac did what Issac does. He shared the gospel. This was the very first encounter these three families have ever had with the gospel and four people gave their lives to Christ.
Isaac and his wife Rebekah are now discipling them. Their goal is to equip them to carry the gospel back to their village. In fact, these four may be the only chance these villages have to hear the gospel for the very first time.
As we near the end of 2022, you will have the opportunity to end gospel deprivation in villages like the one I just shared about. Beginning on GivingTuesday, November 29 and through the end of the year, we will be sharing how you can invest so the gospel is delivered where it's not available so gospel deprivation is eradicated.
