Basil and Cathy D'Souza visited Nepal for another School of Ministries with NIM churches in the 2nd week of November. 160 pastors and leaders from their churches attended this SOM on 'Discovering the Will of God' in Kathmandu. Some of these had trekked for four days to come to the venue. The teaching was well received and everyone was excited with the new understanding on this subject. Their hunger for the truth was very evident, particularly in the question & answer sessions.

In addition, Basil ministered in the Lalitpur church of NIM. They also conducted a Marriage Enrichment Workshop which was attended by 36 couples. The next day they conducted another workshop on Good Parenting in which 89 parents participated, many of whom had attended the Marriage Enrichment the previous day. The trip culminated in a day of teaching and deliberations with 79 senior pastors and leaders on the pressing issues of the leadership.

Some quotes from the delegates:  

‘What we received was wisdom from above.’  

‘We’ve been pastors for many years but have never received understanding and practical teaching like this before.’ 

'The biblical model of leadership teams was an eye opener. We had not heard nor seen modelled this before. '

'We have now understood various types of leaders and have grown in appreciation of our leaders.'
