Savior?" on the first night and "The works of the Holy Spirit" on the

senior pastor. She emphasized, "The false gods can't answer to our
prayer, can't move its eyes or listen to the prayer of its worshippers
either. Jesus Christ is the only Savior according to the spiritual law.
Only through Him, you can receive the salvation, true blessing and true
peace." Next day she went on to emphasize, "God is alive and works even
today! You can meet Him only if you have faith!"

their souls are getting along well."

all thanks to God Almighty for what he has done through the seminar and
the healing festival which unified the local churches and encouraged
them to have confidence in their heart on the revival of churches in
this special season of change in Nepal. We'd like to help the local
church leaders, if they want, to continually work together to take this
opportunity for the development of Christianity in Nepal'"
