The Fight of His Life

Kumar Lama was handed a gun at age 13, when he was forcibly conscripted into an army of Maoist rebels in his home country of Nepal. His communist captors trained him to fight and kill as they sought to overthrow Nepal's long-standing monarchy. When peace finally came to Nepal in 2006, at least 12,000 people had perished in the violence. Kumar's life was spared, and he returned to civilian life, finding work as a carpenter and eventually marrying a girl named Maya Tamang. She gave him a beautiful daughter whom they named Sajina. With his dark past behind him, Kumar looked forward to a brighter future with his young family.

Compassion for a Captain

The afternoon was hot, and I welcomed a seat in the shade under a tree. I was in Myebon, a riverside town in southwest Myanmar, bringing relief to victims of Cyclone Giri with one of Heaven's Family's Burmese ministry partners, M.B. Thang. We had just helped a widow and her four children with funds that would enable them to rebuild their flattened home, and the rare sighting of a white guy in this remote area attracted about thirty curious neighbors. M.B. and I took advantage of our captivated audience to share the gospel—and they were very hungry to hear about the Lord. I also told them about Jesus' followers from far away who had sent me to help them.
