Cross-Culture Trip in Nepal has been unfairly forgotten for decades by many travelers. It’s surrounded by giant countries like India and China, and some people still don’t give Nepal the attention it deserves. On the other hand, those who visit Nepal become real fans. Because it’s located right in the heart of the great Himalayas, it’s the perfect destination for hikers and adventure lovers. However, that’s not all. Nepal offers a wide variety of cultures, tribes, and religions. It’s one of the most interesting countries you can visit in the world! I’m sure if you visit Nepal, you’ll want to go back.
Cross Culture Trip in Nepal, you will sacrifice your time, talents, and money to serve others and do so in the name of Jesus Christ. You will be sharing and encouraging the emerging leaders in the Jesus Saves Network Bible School from your life experiences and you will be also learned from their experiences. Together we will make great for the Lord Jesus expending His kingdom in the country of Nepal. This is arguably one of the highest honors a believer can receive to be the mouth, hands, and feet of the Lord to be his co-laborer in the gospel.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:37-38)
