Flip flops squish the mud as raindrops splatter on the tops of trees and the heads of the four young women. For three months out of every year, it is rainy season in the Himalayas, and the GFA-supported film team ladies trek and climb and slip and slide up and down the mountain range. As the four walk through forests and grassy stretches, leeches cling to their skin. Even though the girls hate leeches, they peel them off and press on. One of the girls smiles. She’s carrying on her back a cone basket full of materials the film team needs—that the people in the next village need.
Opposition Draws Her Closer to God
As the women continued ministering in Langdairo and praying for an opportunity to share the film there, the Lord answered, and the villagers gave them the chance to screen the film.
All for Precious People
After the women left Langdairo, they heard great news. Gospel for Asia-supported pastors had gone to the village to follow up, and two families trusted in Jesus.
“We were filled with joy!” Pasha remembers. “We thought, Our labor is not in vain. … We were really thankful to God.”
These sisters, who cook and cry and laugh together, care deeply for their people. They know the cost and they see hope, so tomorrow again they will gladly climb up and down the mountains, peel leeches off their skin and endure persecution so precious people can see Jesus in all His humanity and, someday, know Him in all His glory.
