Nepal – Pastor Released on Bail

We praise the Lord that Pastor Keshab Raj Acharya was finally released on bail in late June after spending 3 months in a remote prison renowned for its harsh conditions.

He was first accused of uploading a video on YouTube alleging that God can heal COVID-19 through prayer. Despite denying that he uploaded the video, Pastor Keshab was arrested after being asked to pray for a woman who had contracted the virus. He was charged with spreading false information and misleading his followers. He was subsequently re-arrested on 2 other occasions and charged with “outraging religious feelings” and “attempting to convert”, and printing and distributing Gospel tracts.

In late June, his case was reviewed and bail set at $3,300 CAD. Five days later, Pastor Keshab was finally released and reunited with his wife, Junu, and their 2 young children. However, during this time, because the church was unable to pay the rent for the facility they were occupying, they had to vacate the building.

Pray that all charges against Pastor Keshab will be dropped, and he will remain free to raise his young children in the ways of the Lord and continue ministering to others. Pray for wisdom and divine opportunities for this couple to share the gospel. Pray that God will bless the work of their hands and multiply the fruit of their labour.

Pray that God will provide these believers with a suitable place to gather for worship.

Please share this prayer request.
