Project Details


  • Project Description:

    Underground water creates structurally perilous homes in this ethnic Tibetan Himalayan village. Hydro-geologists and engineers are needed to evaluate and design a system to catch the underground and surface water as it drains from 3 different directions into the village, and construct drainage systems that would move the water from this village. We need people to oversee the construction of the drainage system and volunteers who can help with the construction.

    There is a need for proper sewage disposal systems to be built. Currently the sewage ends up in the water. Secondarily there is a need for electricity in this village and region and conditions exist for multiple types of electricity generation including a micro hydro plant and wind turbines.

    Only through God would these things be possible. Not only is this a closed country to the Gospel but this specific part of the country is a restricted area. Local area officials have given permission to conduct this project.

    The priority of these projects is:

    1. underground drains
    2. sewage disposal systems
    3. a micro hydro-electric plant

    This project would require at least one hydro-geologist and multiple engineers and construction workers. Translators will be provided for the team. These national partners are also trained to assist in church planting, evangelism, and discipleship.

    By showing the love of Christ and reducing the risk of devastation due to earthquake, the goal is to create greater receptiveness among this unreached people group to hearing and believing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

     

    All people who come should have a solid walk with God and be able to faithfully handle the Scriptures. We can train you how to effectively share Christ and will provide training on how to use our Bible study method and discipleship materials as we seek to make disciples among the Tibetan peoples.

     

  • Cultural Information:

    In the ethnic Tibetan villages of the Himalayas, the people are staunchly Buddhist. The Tibetan people of Nepal continue to be not only one of the most difficult to reach with the Gospel due to their geographic isolation, and one of the most resistant to respond to the Gospel.

    Many of these Himalayan Tibetans believe Christians don't really care about people. They see Christians come and hand out tracts or Bibles but don't often see Christians getting involved in meeting their felt and physical needs. Tangibly helping this people group will cause them to reevaluate the way they perceive Christians and the Gospel of Christ.

  • Geographic Information:

    This high-elevation Himalayan mountain village is located in a restricted access area of the country. During the 2015 Nepal earthquake this village was almost completely destroyed. Even though many of the buildings have been rebuilt, the real problem lies in the mountain runoff water which drains from three directions into the village. For six months of the year the ground becomes oversaturated and many homes flood. This has caused great structural compromise in the foundations and walls of the buildings. When the earthquake struck, the buildings collapsed.

Pray


  • Ask God to provide sufficient expertise, workers, equipment and funds to solve the water table issues that not only causes the village people to rebuild their homes every 20 years due to unstable foundations but also puts them at extreme risk should another earthquake hit before these issues are resolved
  • Pray that sanitation and energy issues might be addressed as well.
  • Pray that all Christians involved in the project might walk in the Spirit and be vessels of Christ for God’s glory.
  • Pray that the work done in this village will open spiritual doors and hearts for Christ throughout the region and that His church might be established in every village and place.
  • Pray that every work of the evil one, every pride, every prejudice, every vain tradition and religion, and everything that raises itself up against the glory of Christ be bound and brought captive to Christ.
