Pray for the preparations and translation work for 15 days of prayer for Hindus that God would use these resources to create awareness among churches and believers and to generate more prayer for the South Asian Diaspora.
Nepal is very hot in May, when people, especially in rural areas, can struggle for clean drinking water. Please pray that monsoon rains will quickly replenish supplies, but that those same rains would not be so harsh as to cause fatal floods and landslides. Please pray for BMS World Mission workers Alan and Megan Barker as they continue to support BMS’ partners, both in Nepal and further afield, while also keeping up with their various other roles within Nepal.
Many people in Nepal and especially around Pokhara are grieving the loss of family and friends after the plane crash in Pokhara. Pray for comfort for the grieving families and friends and opportunities for local believers to share the hope we have of life beyond death.
Medical buildings that are fit for purpose and earthquake resistant are critical in Nepal. Pray that BMS World Mission worker Toby Vokuhl can well assist with the infrastructure growth plans of one of BMS’ Nepali partners, and that this work will enable continued and improved medical care in the region.
Viva’s partner network CarNet Nepal runs two Learning Spaces in Nuwakot and Lalitpur for children who have fallen behind on aspects of their education. Many of these children come from abusive and violent home lives; providing them with a safe space, and adults who will support them, allows for community transformation and engagement in child rights. “If the Learning Space were not open, children would be irregular at school and many of them would have dropped out.” Pray that the Learning Spaces will help young people catch up on skills and competencies as they return to school.
BMS World Mission supports work in small villages in rural Nepal, aiming to help the members in the community through health and education ministries, as well as through farming training. Many farmers in these communities lose livestock to preventable diseases. Pray that BMS’ recent Good Land appeal would provide much-needed training opportunities for local farmers, enabling livestock to survive and thrive.
