Joshua and Reena Pradhan founded Living Word Centre (LWC) in 1994 after serving as missionaries for more than seven years. LWC is a legally registered charity trust that works toward equipping the church and uplifting the community spiritually, socially, intellectually and economically in the Eastern Himalayan region of India. They recently told about some friends and supporters who visited them and assisted in their ministry.
Joshua writes, “Bert and Heather Kamphuis from Coquitlam, British Columbia, have been good friends of ours since our Prairie Bible Institute days and have also been our faithful supporters over the years. They were very busy during 18 days spent with us and had something lined up every single day. We were able to visit Gangtok, Kalimpong, and Darjeeling; they spoke at every place we went. A local Christian TV channel even interviewed them about their work among international students in Canada. Their preaching in schools and churches and teaching at LWC and at a local seminary were greatly appreciated.
“God faithfully brings young people to us for training at Living Word Centre in preparation for their ministry in different churches and mission fields. Each year, we have four 6-week training programs where we take our students through biblical and practical subjects. We recently held the 67th and 68th training programs at LWC. During the last program, it was an honor to have Bert and Heather with us teaching the students. Bert spoke on leadership from the life of Nehemiah. Heather taught Bible study methods and shared how to make various craft items and cakes and cookies. They also brought a few boxes of books from Operation Mobilization which proved to be a huge blessing to our students.
“We praise God for the many students who have been blessed at LWC. Please pray for the Lord to guide them as they serve in various ministries today. Pray that God will provide funds so that more poor, but deserving, students will be able to attend future programs at LWC. Students are responsible for half the cost of the training program and LWC subsidizes the rest.”
