Just as Jesus cared for the whole person – body, mind and soul – our project partners in Nepal follow His example by addressing a wide range of issues with holistic solutions. Our partner radio stations at Afno FM, serve communities in Okhaldhunga (east Nepal) and Dadeldhura (west Nepal) sharing the Good News and the personal transformation that only Jesus can bring.

SUNDAY 19th December

Afno FM broadcasts a daily live programme where the team receives messages directly from their listeners by text and over the phone. Those listening are invited to share their testimonies and personal experiences, encouraging others as they grow in their faith.

In the approach to Christmas, and the celebration of Christ’s birth, discover stories of praise and thanksgiving from our Feba partners and join our final week of Advent online www.feba.org.uk/Advent4

MONDAY 20th December

Like many countries, COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on local communities, with many facing unemployment, the loss of loved ones and isolation. With increasing incidents of suicide, the team has created a new radio programme specifically for those in need of counselling and support. Please pray for these broadcasts, that they may bring comfort to those struggling, and peace in the midst of anxiety and fear. (John 14:27)

TUESDAY 21st December

The team continually seeks to engage with listeners. Lift up the team as they adapt and adjust to changing needs around them. Pray that they may be able to reply in a timely and appropriate way, providing support and encouragement to those responding to their programmes.

WEDNESDAY 22nd December

Give thanks for team members Aashim* and Ragin* who have recently recovered from COVID-19 and have been able to return to work at the station. Pray for the team as they continue to face the challenges created by the pandemic, asking for God's protection and restoration to full health for those serving in this ministry. (Jeremiah 30:17)

THURSDAY 23rd December

The station in Dadeldhura has recently relocated bringing with it a number of challenges. Despite these, the team has settled and with the equipment in place has been able to continue broadcasting and sharing the Good News in this region. Please pray for God's blessing and protection over the team and their new home, as they seek to connect with their local community and beyond.

FRIDAY 24th December

Praise God for the faithful commitment of the staff team. We give particular thanks today for those who were recently awarded prizes in journalism for their efforts to communicate and inspire through radio. Lord we pray that you will continue to bless the team and all they do to share Your word. (Acts 2:47)

SATURDAY 25th December

Happy Christmas! Vijay, Afno FM’s coordinator, recently shared these words with us, “Thank you Feba UK team for your generous support for us. Thank you for trusting and choosing us for partnership. We believe to serve together for His kingdom in coming years too. We pray for your good health, pray for your family and ministry around the world.” We give thanks to God for partnerships and for the prayerful support of all those lifting up our partners in Nepal and around the world, especially on this special day when we celebrate the birth of Jesus.
