“The blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached to them.” Luke 7:22

Thank you for committing to pray with us for our brothers and sisters in Nepal. You can download our July prayer suggestions here and use them for your personal prayer, prayer group or within your congregational news letter.

Please pray with us for:

INF Nepal

Give thanks for Community Medical Outreach Project Camps in Kapilvastu and Disability Camps in Gorgha which reached 971 patients. A new Oxygen Plant was inaugurated on July 11 by Australia’s Ambassador to Nepal, Felicity Volk, who also visited GPH.

Please pray for the 6 month old baby of a couple who are both visually impaired members of an INF Nepal Self Help Group. The baby has been diagnosed with cataracts and is receiving treatment.

Pray also for Namrata, a member of the nursing staff at Green Pastures Hospital who has been diagnosed with tuberculosis. She has two children under 5 years old.

Thank God for the training in community development being provided to INF Nepal’s community teams by new Community Programs Director, Sean Sokhi. Please pray that new skills and knowledge will encourage even greater impact and community transformation through INF Nepal’s community programs.

Please pray for all officials in the Government of Nepal who are reviewing INF Nepal’s Health Project Agreement. Please pray for a rapid resolution so that expatriates can be granted work visas to work in medical programs and INF Nepal’s critical medical and clinical work can proceed with confidence.

Shanti Nepal

Give thanks, along with Shanti Nepal, that the COmmunity Health Clinic in remote Makwanpur district has increased its earnings and is able to move towards becoming self sustaining.

Thank God for the commitment and energy of Shanti Nepal’s small team of volunteers and staff.

MILAP 

Milap is beginning a new project in Janaki Rural Municipality Ward Number 2 Belbhar and Ward Number 3 Indrapur. In this location, most of the people are from Madhesi and Muslim backgrounds. They are among the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the region. The area is near the Indian border and crime rates are high. Please pray for the success of the new projects and for the safety of staff. 

Caryn and Peter Kneale

Caryn has had a good report from her surgeon and GP with regard to her spinal surgery. She has been advised to wait for three months post-op before flying and the Kneales aim to return to Nepal around the third week of August. 

INF’s Health Agreement with the Nepali government still needs to be signed and this will determine how many expat visas are provided under the ‘health’ category. This will help clarify Caryn’s role in Nepal and whether she will work under Community or Health agreements. 

INF Australia

Give thanks for the faithfulness of our prayer groups, some of whom are enjoying the ability to meet in person together in this half of the year. We are grateful too for the response of our supporters to our end of financial year appeal for funding to support our projects. We will begin the new financial year in a stable financial position to continue to support the work in Nepal. 

Please visit https://inf.org.au/how-your-support-will-bring-hope/ to find out how funds are being used and to read messages of encouragement and prayers from supporters.
