Please keep us in your prayers as we join hands with you. We have committed ourselves to give more time for the ministries of TROHS and we assure you that we'll do our best to be there for you with respect to the ministries of TROHS.

Project manager's comments (Niranjin Adhikary)

Nepal is now responsible for ministry in Nepal and we thank Bright Hope World and Global Development Group from whom we have been getting financial support for our projects. We thank Fe and Carey from Global Development Group and James and Nicky from New Zealand who have recently visited and encouraged us.

However we have found it necessary to raise financial support for our ministry locally. As you know, most of our pastors, leaders and believers’ income source is agriculture. Many Nepalese churches are surrounded by fertile lands from where our ministry expenses can be richly raised. Many of our graduates, pastors and leaders are really unswerving to support us locally. This is the time that our 'beggar' mentality must be thrown away and we must start supporting ourselves because our Lord promised us: ‘I am with you always, to the end of the age”.
