Monk Finds Jesus

[407] prayers in [23] nations have been posted for Dawa.

A former monk has maintained his newfound Christian faith despite strong family opposition. Dawa became a Christian in December 2018 after living as a monk in a Buddhist monastery for 10 years. He left the monastery after placing his faith in Christ, which came as a huge disappointment to his family. In Nepal, having a son who is a monk brings honor to the family. When Dawa’s brother discovered that he was reading a Bible, he threatened to kick Dawa out of the family unless he renounced his Christian faith and returned to the monastery. But having found the truth, Dawa refused to give up his faith. He now hopes to attend a Bible school so he can serve as a missionary to Buddhists. Pray that Dawa will grow in faith and that God will use him to share the gospel among Buddhists.
