Dearly Beloved Brethren,

Kuching Calvary BP Church

I went to Kuching on 21 August 2011 to preach at Kuching. I recounted God’s help and leading as this was my 13th trip to Kuching since August 2009 when I took my first step of faith trusting God to go to Kuching. By God’s grace, we have also organised 2 Church Camps for them and thank God for brethren who came to help in the camps. The Church needs a lot of help especially in the teaching of God’s Word.

One commendable feature of the Kuching Church is that they will all strive to come to the Church Prayer Meeting. The worship service is held on Sunday night at 7.45pm. On Monday night, we will have our Prayer Meeting in a member’s home. They are frank in their sharing of their spiritual struggles and request prayers to overcome their besetting sins.

Thank God for the Church that God has raised in Kuching. They started by taking a separatist stand not to compromise with the Charismatic Churches and the Ecumenical Movement. In fact, in the early days of this Church, sometimes there were only 1 preacher and 2 members. God has kept and preserved them and they have about 13 members now. Pray for them.

Kathmandu BP Church, Nepal

God willing, I will be travelling to Nepal from 10 to 16 October 2011 for the inauguration of the Kathmandu BP Church in Nepal. I hope to conduct Bible classes and Gospel meeting when I go to Nepal. Pray for me.

This is another mission work of faith trusting God to start a witness in Nepal to proclaim the truth of God’s Word. There are many ecumenical type of Churches in Nepal and very few that teach the whole counsel of God’s Word faithfully and contending for the faith. The Lord puts this desire in the heart of Rev. Shachen (a Nepalese FEBC graduate based in Singapore), preacher Rajan (a Nepalese FEBC graduate based in Nepal) and I to start a BP Church for the Lord in Nepal at Kathmandu.

We rented a premise in June this year for the Church for worship and prayer meeting. Evangelism has also started to reach out to unbelievers. Here is an email report dated 16 August 2011 from Preacher Rajan of the progress of the Church. Pray for them.

Dear Rev. Shachen,

Warm greeting in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We all are well in Christ. And hope and pray that you are too well in Christ and your family and Church member too. Dai, in these days, by the grace of God, we are doing our best. 2 people accepted Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. And waiting almost 3 people for Baptism this coming October. Last 2 weeks, 20 and 21 people attended at Ktm B. P. Church. Tuesday and Friday we go outing for Evangelsim and Wednesday evening we have Bible study. And we (Church) moved now in Soyambhu cause very far those who come from Bauddha, Kalanki, Dhapasi, Anamnagar and some other place. After moving Soyambhu, some of members and new members are attending at Church. Please pray for new believers especially who received Christ in our Church and waiting for Baptism. Brother Jaya attended last Sat’s Fellowship and shared his testimony. Previous week brother Rueben Tamang from Kakarvitta shared his testimony. Only this much for today. May the Lord bless and please convey my and Ktm B. P. Church’s members Jaimc to all members of SNF.

In His Grace,
Preacher  Rajan Shrestha
Ktm B. P. Church

Expect Great Things from God; Attempt Great Things for God

There was a young man long ago in England who asked some pastors if the Church had done all it could for the unbelieving heathen world, and received this answer : “Young man, sit down. When God pleases to convert the heathen world, He will do it without your help or mine.” Who was this young man? William Carey.  Mr. Carey eventually sailed for India where he served as a missionary for 40 years (1793-1833). “Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God” was the motto of this great man of God who is now considered the father of modern missions.

May God raise from our Church men and women who are willing to go to the big harvest field for the Lord!

“The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few” Matthew 9:37.

Work, for the night is coming!

Elder John Leong
