Letter of invitation

Pastor Tej B. Rokka of the SARA Church on the Rock writes to fellow Climbing For Christ members:

“I invite you all to come to Nepal any time God opens doors for you. Our church is on the mission to preach the Gospel and make disciples to do the same where there is no church and where there is no easy access.

“I am pleased and thankful to God for connecting me with brother Gary and Climbing For Christ through brother Kyle Austin, who used to attend my church while he was in Nepal. Nepal is mountainous country, including all top mountains of the world. A vast majority of people groups live in remote mountains; they are unreached and they have not heard the Gospel. We are focusing on reaching Buddhists, Hindus, and other groups. They are very much religious, but without one true God. They are uneducated, no good health, poor, and moreover lost in their sins. They are crying for hope in the midst of war, fighting, poverty, superstitions, and so many beliefs. Now we have got a little freedom to propagate the Gospel after a long time of closed doors. We have a harvest ready for reaping, but we lack laborers, so we are praying for God to send workers to this field. Who knows, you may be the one whom God has called to be here.

“Therefore, on behalf of SARA Church On the Rock, I warmly invite and welcome you to Nepal. We can together serve God and His people in Dapcha, and other remote villages and cities of Central Nepal. Please pray and make plans to come as I keep you in my prayers. You will have opportunities to serve at orphanage homes, leaders training center, churches, and others. May God give you favor to respond to His call.”
