Decision on Nepalese pastor delayed

By June 28, 2004

Nepal (MNN) — Pastor Manja Tamang’s verdict hearing before the Supreme Court was supposed to take place last week, but it was again delayed. According to Gospel for Asia, the Chief Justice and judges were involved in a meeting and could not announce their decision. The verdict announcement will be rescheduled, but there’s no word on how soon.

This is yet another delay, but it gives us more time to pray for Manja. Intercede for the wrongfully imprisoned missionary and his family that they may be kept in God’s perfect peace during this trying time. Pray for encouragement from the Scriptures, and lift the hearts of the judges to almighty God.

Tamang says been holding Bible studies daily in prison for 25 people. GFA’s KP Yohannan says one of the men has since been released. Yohannan says he’s now receiving training from Gospel For Asia Bible school, preparing to go into ministry.

Tamang has been in prison since being falsely accused and convicted of murder two years ago.
