Word Made Flesh Nepal’s calling is expressed through transformational ministries of compassion among women, children and youth.
Nepal has been shaped by an atmosphere of isolation and resistance to the rest of the world. Because of this isolation, it is one of the poorest countries in the world.
Our calling is expressed through transformational ministries of compassion among women, children and youth and unifying relationships with the poor and the local church. We are committed to making Jesus known by upholding the dignity of women, through the prophetic values of sonship and daughterhood, through the empowerment of Nepali leadership, and through building unity among other believers in Kathmandu who share a similar vision.
Karuna Ghar – Home for Girls
Gautam and Rekha Rai are the parents of this family of girls. Karuna Ghar (Home of Compassion) provides a hope-filled future for girls from backgrounds of abuse and neglect. The Rais currently have twelve children.
Prem Ghar – Home for Elderly Women
At Prem Ghar (Home of Love) Jyoti Bhattarai and her family continue to care for elderly women who have been widowed or abandoned by their families. Jyoti serves the ammas (mothers) diligently, and the ammas have found love and life at the home, where they occupy their time tending the home’s small herd of goats, raising vegetables, and being grandmothers to the Bhattarais’ three daughters.
In addition to the six ammas they care for at Prem Ghar, Jyoti and her husband, Shiva, operate an outreach to the elderly, assisting women in need who are unable to live at Prem Ghar. The Bhattarais care for 12 elderly women around the Kathmandu Valley, assisting them with housing needs, medical care, food and clothing.
Street Ministry Among Men and Women Living in Addiction
WMF Nepal staff spend time on the streets pursuing relationships with children, young men and women who are living in addiction to alcohol and hard drugs. Through relationships that have been established, WMF staff members are able to provide counseling, first aid and exposure to the gospel of Jesus Christ. They spend countless hours deepening these relationships through jail visits, hospital visits and home visits, with the intention of helping their friends through the process of family reintegration.
