    Praise the lord sir,
    My name is Ganesh BC from nepalgunj Banke ,Nepal. I am a pastor doing ministry in nepalgunj . After my biblical studies I came back to my villages and saw many youth Are backsliding from faith . And saw church pastor teaching and preaching is very poor so many false teacher took them from the church. So seeing this I am independent and planning, praying for it to teach those local level pastors and leaders to build health church.

    I am 42 years old. I have had several jobs in the past. I am not new to the word, but recently I feel that I have failed God, and that I don’t deserve his grace. Whatever experiences that I have had in life can help, they are offered now! I am willing to go Anywhere! I pray that Jesus will tell me where to go, and what to do. If anyone here can help me help others, please let me know. Thank you

    In most bigger towns the nation over, there are group associations that keep up at least one lofts for YASNs. On the other hand, a few families that have YASNs can meet up and sort out to lease a few flats in a similar complex (with the landowner’s contribution and endorsement, obviously). This is an incredible choice for guardians who wouldn’t fret rolling over to visit a couple times each week and can help compose exercises.
