Nepal: 4th Quarter, 2017

By Asee Darla


In Nepal, one of the students wanted to come to Nellore (India) for further studies, but because of the bad weather conditions, they are afraid to travel to reach Kathmandu. Whenever the weather is clear for their travel, I am waiting to arrange their trip.

We are constantly praying and encouraging to all of our students to continuously spend time praying, thinking, and memorizing the Sermon on the Mount. Sanjay is in constant touch with them in Whatsapp and other media facilities. The students are eagerly waiting for get together for studies and fellowship.

Philippines: 4th Quarter, 2017

Rains continue and two typhoons just passed by Northern Luzon. Many areas were flooded and experienced landslides. By God’s grace, we are still safe in Baguio City. My wife Minda and her sisters are still in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental to attend the funeral of her mother. Alvin Luther, an American missionary who married a Filipina and put a church and school there, shall give the funeral message.

I have started a new seeker’s class in Munoz, Nueva Ecija, in the house of Minda Barbo. Most of them are young people (high school age) and are eager to learn God’s word and become disciple–makers. Helping me are Jun Abaya and Andy Mabesa (both volunteer workers of Cabanatuan Church), who make use of their private cars and money to help in the Lord’s work. Praise be to God that we have such brethren today.

I recently came from a three day summit meeting of old preachers from Tagaytay City, held at the Christian Development Centre. We reviewed the 21 Ecumenical Councils of both the Western and Eastern churches, the Muslim conquest of Europe and other parts of the world, the Reformation and the Restoration movements, and the essential differences in Churches of Christ with other religious groups. Our purpose is to be able to understand other groups and how to bring them to Christ’s fold in the most effective way. Sponsoring this quarterly meeting is Isidoro Cayton (a Christian businessman based in Tagaytay City).

Soon I shall be going to Cabanatuan City again to continue seeker’s classes in Munoz, Nueva Ecija, and Kalikid Sur, Cabanatuan City. Please include these studies in your prayers. Always, we thank WFR Church, the World Radio people, One Kingdom, and all the benefactors of Word Radio evangelism. God bless you all, brothers and sisters.

Kenya: 4th Quarter, 2017

We are getting rain in most areas, but a few regions are still in need of food. The rain is not sufficient, and the crops they have planted have yet to mature. We have implemented training for farmers on how to produce short–season crops. We are still needing to reach out to families in the northern regions such as Eldoret, where the rain is bad.

In Nakuru, the crops fail due to lack of enough rain, and the people there still need relief. We have exhausted the relief we got from the good people in your ministry. We are also wanting to set up a training facility in Nakuru or Eldoret. 

The election here is over, but tension and challenges linger. We are waiting for the courts to make a ruling soon. More reports coming soon.

India: 4th Quarter, 2017

In India, we are continuously encouraging our regular students to learn more about the Kingdom. Last month, we received 39 new responses and 47 previous responses. I traveled to Nagarjuna Sagar for a two-day Bible seminar and personal studies with two families that are preparing to get baptized. 

My daughter, Sowjanya, and John Lee were so happy to have me in their ministry. We have problems continuously with our government, and there are indications that we will have more problems in the future. I am grateful Brother Ben is making efforts to bring Sanjay to the U.S., and I pray we will receive help.

I am eagerly waiting to meet our family there and be with you to encourage each other by our faith. If every thing goes well, we will meet soon. We love you and feel very comforted whenever we think about you.
