Grace News – Summer 2023
Grace News is Anglican Aid’s quarterly newsletter, through which we share encouragement and updates from our project partners. Below our feature story about Nepal, you will find our lastest quarterly video, as well as updates from our work in Burundi, Kenya, Tanzania and more.
“Our goal is to reach out to every village in Nepal so they can see the light of Jesus,” said Rev Prem Tamang, Director of the Anglican Training Centre in Nepal. It was a great encouragement to meet Prem, with his heart for training workers for gospel ministry, when I visited Nepal in January.
The Anglican Church in Nepal is relatively young, having been formed in 1999 with about 10 independent churches coming together under the auspices of the Diocese of Singapore. They now have 117 congregations, 17 clergy and 45 licensed lay pastors. Although the church in Nepal is one of the fastest growing in the world, there is a lack of trained pastors. Prem feels this lack deeply and is keen to partner with the Diocese of Sydney to develop training programs that equip gospel workers. It was a joy to meet some of the nine students who are being sponsored by Australian Christians through Anglican Aid to study at the Anglican Training Centre.
“I would really like to extend my heart before you and say a great thank you…”
One of the impressive students I met was James Tamang. “There is a great need for workers who don’t need to be ashamed and who handle the word of God correctly. So as we fill this need, we have been moving forward for this generation in Nepal,” he said. James had a message for Christians in Australia: “I would really like to extend my heart before you and say a great thank you for helping us and continue to pray for us as we work together for the Kingdom of God.”
Prem also shared how much he values our partnership in theological training:
“I would like to thank Anglican Aid for supporting us to train theological students in Nepal.
Nepal is one of the places where Christian growth is so rapid. It is our vision and our goal to train up more young leaders to send to the different villages . . . It is important for them to be equipped biblically so that God’s truth can be spread in the whole of Nepal.”
