11-12-14 Jesus 101 Biblical Institute Reaches Himalayan Villagers
The majority of people residing in the Himalayan Hills bordering Indo-Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet-China, are Buddhist and Hindu. The Jesus 101 Biblical Institute was able to send books, DVDs, and study guides to local pastor there, Praveen K. Tamsang, so that he could teach the local villagers. Although the materials were received in English, he was able to translate the materials into the local vernacular Nepali, Hindi, and Bengali so the Himalayan people could hear the message.

The villagers were thirsty for the message of Jesus and many of the people traveled on foot from different directions to hear the message that was presented. Pastor Tamsang stated, “the Jesus 101 message was prepared in simple language with illustrations that were easy to understand by all, reaching the rural and urban areas of this Himalayan Hill. There were many who accepted Jesus as their personal Savior and are now taking Bible studies.”

During the evangelistic series, many of the villagers made a personal commitment to follow Jesus and members of the Buddhist community were baptized. Pastor Tamsang added, “Thank you Dr. Elizabeth Talbot for hearing our prayer and counseling us to move the good news of Jesus! The invaluable gospel materials has helped us win many souls in the Himalayan Hill!”
