"Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising."
Vision Nationals-Nepal was founded in 2008, an outreach of its parent organization Vision Nationals, www.visionnationals.org, which began in India in the early 1990s. Vision Nationals-Nepal was established with the intent of training church planters, ministering to widows and providing a home for orphans.
Since the inception of the ministry, the Lord has continued to bless the work of Vision Nationals-Nepal, expanding the reach and boundaries of His work in this small Himalayan country.
The mission of Vision Nationals Nepal is threefold:
1) To provide church planter/pastor training for Nepalis, Indians and Bhutanese in an effort to build effective, local churches with an emphasis on solid Biblical teaching.
2) To provide a home and livelihood for widows and single mothers.
3) To provide a godly home and education for orphaned children and desperately poor children from single-parent homes.
The work of Vision Nationals-Nepal is currently supported by four families:
|Elliot, Sue, Joel and Isaac|
