Every 5 minutes in Nepal a family
member is dying from Covid 19

Pastors need personal health kits, food for fatherless families and medical supplies.

The church in Nepal is mourning the loss of many pastors like these.

* Pastor Amar Bahadur Fauja (79) died of Covid-19 on Wednesday 12 May. His son Pastor Lok Bahadur Fauja died of Covid-19 on Thursday 6 May (see below).  Father and son died in the same hospital.  A loving father of the same family and loved son, both went to be with their Lord, from the same family, same Church.  The father, Pastor Amar Fauja, was a renowned Godly pioneering pastor.  God used him to start churches with just a very handful of believers in mid-west Nepal.  Amidst severe persecution he stood firmly in his faith.  Because of his strong leadership and vibrant testimony, God used Amar to stay on the cutting edge of outreach and Church planting ministry.  A church leader remarked, “God used the testimony of an ordinary pastor – Amar Fauja – in our part of the region and province.  Today because of his ongoing spiritual leadership, God graced us with 350 plus growing churches in this part of the world. He was a man of faith and man of action.  A fearless Saint.”  Pray for his wife Manisha (76).

 

** Pastor Lok Bahadur Fauja 41 went to be with the Lord on Thursday 6 May 2021 just six days before his father (see above).  A church leader remarked, “He was an energetic young pastor, he died of Covid-19 in Surkhet Hospital. This young pastor had shared a compelling vision of his heart with us to launch massive evangelism to reach the upper Himalayan parts of Karnali Province this year and plant churches in those most unreached remote parts of Nepal where the Gospel has never been preached.” Pastor Lok leaves a wife of 39 Mina Fauja and three sons – Prakash (20), Sushil (17 ) and Prashanta (12).

Thanks to the generous support of WEA donors our Pastors Emergency Covid Fund is already providing relief aid to pastors, widows and orphans of pastors who have died, other church families and their community too as they struggle to survive the out of control Covid 19 pandemic. Food aid, personal health kits, oxygen and more is being distributed by evangelical churches including hardest hit rural areas of Nepal.
