Hello dear friends!
Michael is back from Nepal and has some wonderful things to share! (Go here to read why he went.) We have to be vague, but know that God is working there big time. (Video and photo credit: Robin Malherbe)
The earthquake has opened the door for opportunities to share the love of Jesus with many otherwise “unreachable people” using helicopters. Michael was able to take part in flights to deliver shelters and supplies to villages high in the mountains that were totally devastated by the two earthquakes. One local ministry organization has been greatly encouraged by these flights and feels that God is shortening the amount of time they’ve planned to reach all of these people from forty years down to thirty, in just a couple of months’ time!
What do you believe?
Michael was able to minister to many people, and one in particular responded in big way to the gospel – her name is Amia, a 15 year old self-appointed tour guide at one of the local Hindu temples. As she was giving a tour for Michael and a few MAF co-workers, she explained that there are more than 1,000,000 Hindu gods, each with differing importance. As they climbed the stairs of the temple, each level having a different ranking god on it, they reached the top – the monkey god. She then asked Michael, “What do you believe?”
The Holy Spirit empowered Michael to share the truth about Jesus right then and there, and she was astounded! She, like many, had big misconceptions about who Jesus is and what’s He’s done for mankind. After lengthy conversation, she was very intrigued and wanted to know more. After connecting her with a local pastor, she promised Michael and his co-workers that she’d find out as much as she could by visiting the church and reading a Bible. Praise God! Pray that someday you will meet Amia in heaven!
Partnerships in the harvest field
Much like you are partnering with us and with Helimission in reaching people all over the planet, ministry organisations and private companies are doing a beautiful job of working together out here to get the job done. Mission Aviation Fellowship, Fishtail Helicopters, and Helimission, along with others, have been tirelessly working together over the last few months, each using their area of expertise and gifting, to grow God’s eternal Kingdom! Here is a magnificent little video to give you an idea of how.
Thanks for working with us – God bless you loved ones! We couldn’t be or there without you.
