विकास, मण्डली र संघसंस्था; परीवर्तनको शुरुवात कहाँबाट गर्छौ ?

पेरुको उत्तरी प्रान्तमा एउटा जनजातीको बसोबास छ जसलाई “एमोआई जाती” भनेर चिनिन्छ। जब सुसमाचार पहिलो पटक त्यस प्रान्तमा आयो, परमेश्वरले त्यहाँका मानिसहरुका बिचमा अचम्म रीतिले काम गर्नुभयो। भौगोलिक दृष्टिकोणले एमोआईहरुको जीवन त्यति सजिलो भने अवश्य थिएन। सिंचाईको सुविधा नभएका कारण खेतीपाती पनि त्यति राम्रो हुदैनथ्यो। फेरि बजारको अभावले गर्दा स्थानिय जनताले जेनतेन गरि उब्जाएको फसलको […]

Down to the Earth: From Dr. Val Inchely to Bal Kumari

-Janak BC   I was familiar with the name “Bal kumari” since I became a believer in Christ, and thought that she might be somewhere from the mountain side. We rarely find such a type of name ending in ‘Kumari’, as it mostly occurs in the middle of Nepali names! However, it might have been […]

Justice […]
