From 13 to 17 August 2012, Pastor Lawrence Lim spent five fruitful days in Nepal preaching to 100 pastors and church leaders, and visiting the ministry that our church had sowed into.
For most of the pastors, this was the first time they were hearing the gospel of grace. Some had even travelled for days from neighbouring countries, Bhutan and India, just to hear the good news. Invited by Pastor Raju from Hosanna Church Ministry, Pastor Lawrence preached the powerful message of God’s grace and love at an intense two-day Grace Seminar.
In the Spirit-filled prayer session led by Pastor Lawrence, many were embraced by the Holy Spirit and others joyfully shared that the fresh revelation of God’s love inspired them to move forward to the next level in their ministry!

Pastor Raju shared that after he read Pastor Prince’s book, Destined To Reign in 2009, an amazing breakthrough took place in his ministry. With the revelation that the pulpit is a place to feed God’s love to His people, his congregation has grown so much that he now holds two services on Sundays for 1,000 adults and 400 children.
God also used Pastor Raju’s ministry mightily and gave him the favour to set up the first church in an isolated village populated by the Badi caste. In just three years, 300 girls were rescued from prostitution and given free lodging and education at Badi Girls’ Home, also supported by New Creation Church.
Pastor Lawrence visited the girls’ home and ministered to the girls with prayers of restoration and healing. During the time spent, many testimonies were shared, giving glory to God’s work in Nepal!
