Gumi Church 

As I started to work with Lil Shris at his Bible School we started to get involved with his home church in Gumi.  I had the privilege of seeing this church grow and spent a lot of fun times with the youth producing skits on videos.

Lil Shris had close ties with the church in Chinchu somewhat of a sister church to the church in Gumi.  I had the privilege to go to Chinchu often to encourage Pastor Nahar Garti and the Christians there.

Dadagau Church 

Another sister church of the church in Gumi is the church in Dadagau.  The church in Dadagau was started when a mother of 9 who was married to a drunkard was sick.  No longer being able to work to feed her family she walked a day away to Lil's church where she eventually got healed.

Eventually this ladies whole family became Christian and within a short time many families came to Christ.  Going to Dadagau was another real pleasure as it was 3 hours away on a motorbike and a three hours walk up the mountain.

Melekuna Church 

We helped Pastor Phatta Bdr Rana in Melekuna start a church because it was one of the most highly populated area of Surkhet.  The church in Melekuna took quite a while to grow but has become a well established church.

Jumla Churches

Pastor Satal is from Micha but was not able to start a church in his home town for many years after he studied at the Bible School.  Satal was a missionary who started churches in many places before he went home to start a church in his own area.  

After a Solar Project in 2009 we were able to buy land for Pastor Satal and Pastor Narayan Neupani.  Pastor Neupani built a church / orphanage on his land and Satal started a church.

Mugu Churches

We have been involved with the growth of the church in Mugu from the very start with our first trip back in 2003.  One of the first churches we helped start in Mugu was the AG church there.  Most of our Solar Projects were done in Mugu in co-operation with the AG pastor Bal Bahadur who is now diseased.  

We bought land and build a building for the church there and later continued to help out.  The humanitarian projects we are doing in Mugu are threw one of our staff Rajani Bham who used to work at the Mercy House in Surkhet.
