A Christian speaker shares a message about the love of Christ at the Easter celebration program.

With the sun on the horizon, Christians in Nepal put on their walking shoes. Then they gathered together, and Gospel for Asia native missionary Arun Prasad led them in prayer. Excitement filled their hearts as they prepared for the long day ahead. Easter had finally come.

This year, Gospel for Asia missionaries gathered with about 30,000 other Christians in Nepal for an Easter parade. Joyfully singing songs and carrying colorful banners adorned with Scriptures, the believers walked for several hours proclaiming the Good News of Christ’s resurrection.

Arun and the believers with him passed out hundreds of tracts to people along the parade route—which stretched from one village into another. They also stopped and shared more about the Gospel message with those who had questions.

When the believers reached the final village, they conducted an Easter celebration program that included singing, skits and a presentation of the Gospel message. Many of the people they met along the parade route attended—and heard about the love of Jesus for the first time.

Gospel for Asia missionaries and other believers carried banners adorned with Scripture and Christian messages along the parade route.

At the end of the day, the believers rejoiced at how the Lord worked that day. They praised God for the time to celebrate His gift of salvation and share about His sacrifice with others.

Arun and the believers request prayer that the tracts they distributed will bring much fruit, and that many will come to know the Lord through the Easter parade outreach.
