A church leader in Nepal gets a court date.

By March 4, 2004

Nepal (MNN) — The future of a missionary pastor with Gospel for Asia in Nepal could be decided soon. We just received word that his case will be heard in court very soon.

Pastor Manja Tamang, who was wrongfully imprisoned on murder charges, was convicted on trumped up murder charges. On March 18 his case will be heard before a full panel of judges in the Supreme Court of Nepal. It often takes many hearings and cancellations before a case is fully decided. “Please continue to pray with us for quick release and justice for our brother Manja,” a GFA leader writes.

After two judges deciding Manja’s verdict last November came to different conclusions, our dear brother continued to wait patiently in his prison cell, shining the light of Christ to the people around him. Like Manja, his wife remains in the joy of Christ, ministering to other women and children in Nepal. Their children study in a local school and are doing well.
Pray with us for Manja’s lawyer as he prepares and presents the case, and for the Lord to work in the hearts of each person who will hear it. Intercede also for Manja and his family, that they may be encouraged and kept in His peace.
