SPECIAL OFFER FOR SHELTERING IN PLACE
“THE UNEXPECTED MISSIONARY”
Gagan Gurung found it difficult to find shelter – until Jesus found him.
His family was forced to leave Bhutan and return to their native Nepal. The Gurung family lived in a squalid refugee camp for 22 years. On his way to be baptized by a river outside the camp Gagan became terrified and ran up into the mountains.
The boy hid in a Hindu-Buddhist temple. His life was in crisis. After a miracle he was baptized in the refugee camp. He had met a God Who would not leave him alone – Who would give him shelter in place.
This is the story of a miraculous conversion. How did a man from Nepal who had once avoided baptism end up as a missionary to America leading more than fifty souls to baptism in St. Louis, Missouri?
The Lord led Gagan Gurung through very difficult times as a lesson for you, and me and someone who needs to hear a word of assurance. Someone who needs shelter. Like St. Paul:
St. Paul says to us in 2 Corinthians 1:8-10, “We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us.”
While you and I are sheltering in place we can find inspiration from Gagan’s story. If you know someone else who needs support during this time why not share this account of God’s mercy and protection with them?
