Join us this November on our Bible Mission Trip to Kathmandu, Ghyang Sukathokar and a village (TBC) in Nepal where you will experience hands-on ministry. You will help distribute bibles and scripture resources, relief aid and school kits to the children and needy people. It will be a great opportunity to bless the locals with resources and humanitarian aids. You will also get to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, pray for the people and at the same time, let God transform your life.
We also strongly encourage participants to raise SGD$1000 to support Bibles and other resources for the villagers.
