This week our CAN authors are sharing heart warming stories of fulfilling the Great Commission and speaking around the country on matters close to their heart!
Grace Fox just completed an 11-day trip through Nepal. This was a pilgrimage of sorts for her and her eldest daughter who was born with hydrocephalus in Nepal 33 years ago. Her daughter’s lifelong dream has been to visit her birthplace, and this trip fulfilled that dream. Read the beginning of this story—how Grace’s husband returned to North America with their three-day old daughter while Grace was left behind in Kathmandu not knowing whether or not she would see her baby alive again. https://www.christianity.com/11622440/
Also on this trip Grace and her husband, Gene, visited the village where they lived for two years in the 80s. Gene was a civil engineer then, and he helped build a hydro project that brought electricity to this region. They discovered that these Hindu friends now watch TV programs that present the Gospel. Without electricity, this wouldn’t be possible. Another highlight was distributing Nepalese Bibles to the villagers. God is on the move.
