Pastor Dies After Contracting COVID-19

Believers in Nepal are mourning the death of a beloved pastor who died from complications of coronavirus. Lomas Shrestha had served as a pastor for the last 20 years after coming to Christ. Last year, Pastor Lomas enthusiastically distributed Christmas Care Packs and supplies to pastors during the first wave of the pandemic. “This is the right time to help people who are in need,” he said. Before his death, Pastor Lomas said, “I believe that I have done everything possible for Him. I believe that I fought the good fight and achieved the purpose of God! I know that I am going to my heavenly Father. I know that He will take care of my wife and children. I know that my church will continue to grow by His mighty people. I am going to my Lord! Do not worry about me!” Pray for his family, for his church and for all the churches in Nepal.
