IMB Nepal Prayer Journey
This prayer journey will begin in Kathmandu. The group of six participants will then split into groups of three with one group heading west to Pokhara and one group heading east to Dharan. Both groups will meet back up in Chitwan before returning together to Kathmandu. The two groups of participants will be accompanied by IMB personnel during travel. This journey will allow for praying on site while gaining an overview of current work in Nepal. Our desire is that participants will return to Charlotte as advocates for prayer for the work in South Asia and for partnerships between IMB teams and Charlotte churches.
This will not be an easy trip. It will be wearing physically, mentally and spiritually. We will do our best to arrange adequate hotels, transportation, and hygienic meals, but non of this is guaranteed. What is guaranteed is that participants will be exposed to the realities of Nepal–especially the overwhelming lostness. But, participants will not leave without hope as they will interact with passionate believers, both Nepali and international, and hopefully come away with a vision for seeing the gospel transform the lives of the millions that call Nepal their home and ways churches in Charlotte can be a part of what God is doing in South Asia.
This is not simply a one-off prayer journey. Participants should be people who can champion prayer for and partnerships with the work in South Asia after they return from this trip. Our desire is that this experience leads to long-term partnerships between Charlotte churches and IMB teams. Another desire is that participants will capture prayer needs and images which will be compiled by the association for the creation of a prayer guide which will be used by the Metrolina Association and others. Regular debriefs during the trip will give opportunities for the group to compile these items.
In-country cost is approximately $600/person. This includes all local travel, lodging, and meals, as well as expenses for partners traveling with the group. Not included in this estimate are expenses such as international airfare, visa, mandatory travel insurance, mandatory background check, and souvenirs.
October 4-11 (In-country dates)
