On the 27th of May 2016, our good friend and partner in ministry Pastor Gunja lost his life in a tragic motorbike accident on the Pokhara road.
In the short time we have known Pastor Gunja, it has been clear that he is a wonderful man of God who loved serving his people and community. Pastor Gunja and his wife Kapana have planted two churches in the Chitwan region as well as mentored a number of other tribal churches in the region. Several years ago they opened their home to orphan and abandoned children, whom they loved and cared for as their own. Just a couple of months ago, as I was talking to Pastor Gunja about the children’s home he commented: “When we heard of the terrible situations and condition of these ‘at risk’ children we just knew we had to do whatever we could, so we started the children’s home”.
Would you pray for Kapana and the children of Great Commission Children’s Home? Many of the children there have been there for several years, they must feel like they have lost their parents twice over. Many of these children are available to be sponsored through IMM’s sponsorship program.
As we mourn the loss of this wonderful man of God, we look to the Lord for answers to assist however we can – please pray with us.
