Holistic Development and HIV and AIDS Treatment

Nepal, South Asia

We desire to go where Christ is not known and demonstrate His love in practical ways, serving the poor and marginalised communities where Christ is least known. We encourage local churches to build relationships with and serve their local communities.

Where people come to Christ through our ministry, we link them with a local fellowship or believer to be discipled. For clients, communities and churches, we serve/partner with them to ensure holistic change and to see them empowered to make decisions and be more proactive in solving social, health, economic, spiritual and environmental problems.

We desire improvement in health awareness and health behaviors, including providing cleaner, safer living environments and access to safe drinking water and hygienic toilets. We desire improved addiction awareness, addiction prevention, and assistance to clients and their families in remaining addiction-free.

We desire that HIV and AIDS awareness improve and for churches to engage in HIV and AIDS care and support. We desire an increase in productive livelihood skills and employment and for more people able to afford their basic needs and utilize savings/credit appropriately. We hope communities would respect the presence of the church and recognize it as a catalyst for community wellbeing.

Prayer Resources

 

10 Days of Prayer

Every year, we take the ten days from the Ascension of Christ to Pentecost as a time of prayer. This year we focus on different aspects of joy, in part because of our 125th anniversary year celebrations. We hope that this resource can guide you each day as we look at what the Bible says about joy in our lives.
