Celebrating Christmas in Nepal: God's Different Strategy

Christmas in Nepal was celebrated differently this year due to the country's anti-conversion laws, but the gospel still reached 50 people thanks to the prayers and efforts of GCC Nepal's youth group.

Why It Matters: Despite a cultural Hindu pride among many Nepalese, the gospel reached 50 people who expressed interest in coming to the Lord. The church of Nepal needs prayer to help break the chain of ancestral religious pride.

Loving Greetings from GCC Nepal.

We want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year again 2023. We want to report to you on how we celebrated Christmas in Nepal.

We had a busy outreach time from 15th December. Our youth group participated in an outreach to the communities of our church brothers and sisters. Our church members invited their household, relatives, and neighbours to celebrate Christmas. We were praying and wanted to make it happen since we are not allowed to share the Gospel publicly due to the anti conversion laws of Nepal.

... so God had a different strategy for us this Christmas. [O]ur church brothers and sisters invited their relatives and neighbours to their home. We prayed and worshipped together and finally we ended the session with the preaching. We have sowed the seeds of the good news of Jesus Christ among 50 people this year. We thank God that these people have shown interest in listening to the word. They want to come to the Lord some day.

But due to their hindrance from family and society, they are scared to come to Christ as their family has a cultural Hindu pride. We want you to pray with us for these people as they need to break the chain of this ancestral religious pride.

We also had a special Christmas service on 25th December. We were altogether 150 people participating in Christmas in Kathmandu. We invited 20 new people to our church for this Christmas to preach and share the good news. Our different groups (youth group, women's group, kids group) planned to add the taste of Christmas in our service. They sang Christmas hymns, and did skits and dances to deliver the gospel message to our participants. We ended our Christmas service at 3:00 PM and we shared Christmas greetings and gifts with joy . . .

It was such an encouraging time for our church this Christmas. We thank you for contributing into our ministry for the sake of the Kingdom of Lord. Please continue to pray for us and our ministries in Nepal. God is impacting the lives of the Nepalese people. Thank you.

With Love and Prayers, TImothy
