GFA Pastor’s case nearing end in Nepal

By May 10, 2004

Nepal (MNN) — Gospel for Asia is excited that one of their missionary pastors has finally had his day in court. We have received news from Nepal that pastor Manja Tamang Manja’s case went before the Judges of the Nepali Supreme Court late last week. GFA reports they examined the case in a five hour hearing. Tamag’s wife and children as well as many GFA staff attended.

Gospel For Asia’s field leader in Nepal is optimistic and reports he sensed the prayers of God’s people, those in and out of the courtroom. “Often when I turned my
face to look back,” he writes, “I saw many of our people praying.” For hundreds of Christians in GFA Believers Church congregations and Bible colleges in Nepal, the day was dedicated to prayer and fasting.

The judges are expected to issue a final verdict on May 27. GFA is ask people to pray over the next few weeks.

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