Thursday July 12th

Why do we speak different languages? That is my introduction, which leads into the Babel account and the joyous glory of our unity in Christ Jesus with one Lord, one faith, one baptism.

Pastor Lekh serves the congregation we were at today. The seminar started slowly, only four there at the time we were scheduled to start. But they kept coming so there were 50 by the time Matthew started teaching. As all needed to be saved from the flood, youth and mature, Cainites and Sethites, so 1 Peter 3:18-21 all need to saved through baptism in Christ, baptism which is Acts 2:38 for the forgiveness of sins.

Pastor Lekh has been a Christian for 45 years. He is 68. Christianity in any form, preaching, evangelizing, sharing tracts etc was illegal in Nepal at the time he was converted and until 1990. He indicated that before he was converted he was a heavy drinker. One night a man from Chennai took him home and put him to bed at his place. When he woke up the man did not preach Christ, cause that was illegal, but Pastor Lake described it as kind of talking about it symbolically. Pastor Lekh kept coming back and has not drunk alcohol since. During the 70′s he endured heavy persecution with the other Christians.

There was an 81 year old there who has been a Christian 55 years, thrown in prison and more for Christ. He was quite eager to tell us all about his life. The Biblical vision of Christ as the ladder to heaven has had special meaning for him. He leads the congregational prayers for healing for the sick.

On the way back to our lodging, an artist from Canada accosted me. His pitch: “I am selling my paintings to help Nepal and its people. My impressionistic drawings are meant to help people see its greatness. I have been featured on the Letterman show. Soon my paintings will be worth millions. You can buh one now because I have seen you and talked with you in my visions so I know you are worthy.” Obviously I invested all I had. Language without Christ remains a confusion but in Him we hear the voice of heaven.
