In the summer of 2016, the ULM Wesley took a group of 13 individuals across the world to the country of Nepal. This experience allowed us to show the love of God to the people of Nepal in various ways. We shared the presence of God with everyone with whom we came in contact and got a unique opportunity to preach and lead worship at a local church in the remote village in the mountains.
Our main reason for going to Nepal was to show God's love in a practical way through the building of a hostel. Many of the children walk a far way, some up to 8 hours round trip, to and from school. This hostel acts like a dormitory for these students to live during the week while they go to school. The hostel will be able to hold up to 16 students.
We continued our work with the Chepang village following our summer 2016 mission trip to Nepal by building a two room school for 42 students (ages 4 - 4th grade) in the summer of 2018.
Into Nepal Continued
The ULM Wesley Foundation is seeking to make a difference in the lives of people living in the Chepang Hills of Nepal, especially children. These young students will walk as far as 8 hours to attend school. Many of the children living in the area suffer from malnourishment and some are discouraged to attend school because of the distance. By building a hostel, we have eliminated the obstacle of distance.
Now we have started a school lunch program! Check out the video below to see the program in action. We believe lodging and shelter gives these young hearts and minds a better chance to be who God created them to be. For just $5.50 per month, you can provide a daily lunch for 1 of the 384 students enrolled for this school year. We’d love for you to join us in this great adventure, remembering these words of Jesus... for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
