Pastor Mohan Limbu was passing out Bibles in a village when a group of about 60 local people confronted him and accused him of paying people to convert to Christianity.  They told him to leave the village and never return.  Mohan got on his motorcycle and left, but he was overtaken by the group which then beat him severely and stole his motorcycle.  The Pastor suffered two broken ribs, and is having difficulty walking because of the damage done to his legs.

What you can do:

  • Please pray for Pastor Mohan, his family, and his community.
  • Please pray for the village and the people who attacked him.

Father, I thank you for Pastor Mohan, who is willing to give his time, energy, and money to share his knowledge of you with the people around him.  I pray that You will lift him up, heal him, encourage him, and strongly support him as he recovers from this vicious attack.  I pray for the village where he was working.  I ask You to pour out Your Spirit upon everyone in that place.  Open their eyes, and reveal yourself to each person there is a personal and special way.  I pray for those who attacked the pastor.  I ask you to forgive them, as you forgave Saul, and show the who you are, just as you did Saul.  Raise up a hundred new followers from the ashes of Pastor Mohan’s abuse.  Let Jesus shine in Nepal, Father.

 

Chhedar Bhote Lhomi: Nepal

nepal

Chhedar Bhote Lhomi and his wife are from an area of Nepal where eating beef is allowed, however in other areas of the country local Hindus refuse to eat beef.  Cows are considered sacred, and must be treated as symbols of the gods.  Pastor Bhote and his wife established a church in a remote area of Nepal and were working among the Tibetan people there.

In October 2012, some villagers discovered that Chhedar and his family eat beef.  They accused him of killing cows, and turned him over to the Hindu committee, which had him arrested, and sentenced him to 12 years in prison.  A representative of Voice of the Martyrs met with him in prison recently, and found him to be sad and discouraged.  He’s worried about how his wife will be able to provide for the needs of his family, and what will happen to his children (ages 10, 8, and 7), who are constantly ridiculed and mocked by their peers.

What you can do:
Pray for Pastor Bhote and his family.
Write letters to him to support and encourage him, and to let him know he’s not forgotten:
Nakkhu Kargar Sauybu-4
Cod No 44700 GPR Block
Kakkhu Lalitpur
Kathmandu
Please remember to never mention the name of the source of your information, nor the name of any organization when writing to prisoners.  It may bring harsher punishment to the prisoner.  It is fine for them to receive personal letters from individuals.  Please be respectful of their country and government, and don’t say anything negative about their homeland.  You can visit PrisonerAlert.com for more information and letter writing materials.

Father, You are the Lord of all creation, and You live right there in that prison cell with Pastor Bhote.  Strengthen him, support him, encourage him, and lift him up by the saving power of Your mighty right hand.  Pour out the glory of Your presence in his prison cell, and let the light of Jesus shine through him to everyone with whom he comes in contact.  Support and provide for the needs of his family.  Lead them to a safe place to live.  Bring them to a group of believers who will accept and welcome them.  Give his wife the means she needs to support her children while her husband is in prison.  Let Your light shine with Your shekinah glory over every member of this precious family, Father.  Please bring Pastor Bhote home, as soon as possible, and pour out Your peace upon him, and each member of his family.  Work among the villagers they love, Lord, and bring them to You.
