Sarvajit graduated from a seminary in North India in 2010 and returned to Nepal in order to work alongside his father. He has a great desire to see Nepalese believers grow in their understanding of the Scriptures. Pray for him as he serves the church in Nepal.
Dear brothers and sisters, greetings to you in Christ our Lord from the land of Nepal. We are thankful to the Lord for His grace and mercy in enabling us to grow in Him. My wife Arpana and our two baby girls are doing well. Arpana is standing by my side in caring for the kids as well as encouraging and praying for me. She has been reading some solid books (Shepherding a Child’s Heart, Living by the Book) which have been helping her to grow spiritually and in biblical soundness. I am so thankful to the Lord for her support and for His grace in strengthening our marriage as we seek to please Him.
It is my privilege and joy to share about the work of the Lord here in Nepal and how He has used me over the last couple of months.
The most important part of my ministry is the local church, where I am shepherding the flock that God has entrusted to me. Brother Dul and I have been feeding the hungry souls by taking them through a series of sermons from the book of Romans. So far, we have taught through Romans 1:1-3:18. We have spent nine weeks in this book, and it has been very wonderful (as well as encouraging) to walk in His living Word. Some of the subjects on which we have taught so far are the righteousness of God, man’s problem of sin, and the solution to that problem—the gospel of Jesus Christ. The saints were encouraged and challenged. They are slowly and gradually gaining a deeper understanding of the gospel. Please pray that the Lord would continue to edify His church through the preaching of His Word.
For the last few months I have been involved in teaching the brothers in the internship, as well as some other young brothers who are joining the training class. Brother Dul has been teaching the Old Testament Survey class and the Hermeneutics/Homiletics class. I have been teaching from Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology. We have just finished considering the doctrine of the Scriptures. We have gone through the four characteristics of Scripture: authority, clarity, necessity, and sufficiency. Now we have started the doctrine of God. May God open our minds and hearts to know Him more and to humble us as we come to Him. These young men are very excited; they are learning, immersing themselves in the truth, and growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ through these lessons. My sincere prayer is that God would raise some leaders to send out into His harvest. The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few (Matthew 9:37).
God has also given me an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ among a Tharu tribe at a wedding party in Kapilvastu. Brother Hari invited us to this program. I had the privilege of sharing the gospel to the bridegroom and bride, and many others were there. People were listening to what I was sharing, but they did not respond. May the Lord change their stony hearts and give them hearts of flesh!
I have been reading the book 9 Marks of a Healthy Church by Mark Dever. This has been very encouraging and challenging. I have read through the first (“Expositional Preaching”) and second (“Biblical Theology”) marks thus far. Praise the Lord! He is helping me to grow deeper in understanding. This is God’s wonderful blessing in my life—giving me a high view of Himself and helping me to adore Him alone. I am continuing to read this book in order to understand the biblical truth which will help me to grow, to worship, and to lead His flock according to His will.
Thank you for your prayers and support. It is very encouraging to my family and me. We desire to grow in His grace and to advance His kingdom. May Christ be proclaimed and honored in this needy land through the establishment of biblical churches! Let Psalm 117 be our prayer: “Praise the Lord, all nations; laud Him, all peoples! For His lovingkindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord is everlasting. Praise the Lord!” Amen!
