“‘For I Was Hungry, And You Gave Me Something To Eat. I Was Thirsty, And You Gave Me Something To Drink. I Was A Stranger, And You Invited Me In. I Needed Clothes, And You Clothed Me. I Was Sick, And You Looked After Me. I Was In Prison, And You Came To Visit Me.’
Then The Righteous Will Answer Him, ‘Lord, When Did We See You Hungry And Feed You, Or Thirsty And Give You Something To Drink? When Did We See You A Stranger And Invite You In, Or Needing Clothes And Clothe You? When Did We See You Sick Or In Prison And Go To Visit You?’
The King Will Reply, ‘Truly I Tell You, Whatever You Did For One Of The Least Of These Brothers And Sisters Of Mine, You Did For Me.’”
(Matthew 25:35-40, NIV)
The fact lies here, life in the Himalayas is hard and sometimes beyond imagination. In the winter it snows heavily. In the summer monsoon season the rains bring floods and landslides that sweep away many buildings and people.
When traveling in the Himalayas, our dear brothers and sisters must spend hours walking to reach their destination. Many times, they have to cross big rivers that bring risks and fears of being swept away.
They go from house church to house church in the distant places, carrying their children on their backs as they cross those dangerous rivers, travel through dense forests and over steep mountains.
Nepal is highly vulnerable to earthquakes, epidemics, dangerous weather events like floods, landslides, fires, avalanches, windstorms, hailstorms, lightning, and droughts.
Water scarcity in the Himalayan regions is also very common. Safe drinking water is the necessity of the communities and remote villages of the Himalayas.
This problem affects women most often, as they are responsible for many household chores. They must travel miles to get water which wastes their daytime and energy. At the tap, well or source of water, they must stand in a queue and wait for their turn. These regions are often ignored and lack many of the developmental projects more common in suburban areas.
Life in the Himalayas is beyond imagination. People live more in hopes and dreams rather than in foods. As many native people are known for being unreached, ignored, degraded, and impoverished, they have many enthusiastic questions that can only be answered through the powerful scriptures of God.
Our native believers from the remote Himalayas stand firm in faith in God. Their life struggles and testimonies can bring anyone to tears. Their life transformations can make anyone overjoyed at the divine plans of our God. Their passion, prayer, and determination of serving God in such a harsh situation of life is truly humbling indeed.
Despite many personal, financial, and professional problems and sometimes losing houses, livestock, and lands, they have learned to live in happiness
