We just heard the latest about wrongfully imprisoned GFA-supported missionary Manja. Today when our brothers from the field went to Nepali Supreme Court officials, they heard a verdict from the judges that he would not be released.

Now field leaders are planning an appeal to the King of Nepal on Manja’s behalf. Earnestly pray for God’s wisdom to be given to our brothers. Pray also for King Gyanendra’s heart to be receptive. Our Nepal field leader believes God will answer our prayers.

Though sad and deeply disappointed upon hearing the verdict, Manja responded with trust in the Savior. “God is in control,” he stated. “God has a plan and in His sovereign grace and foreknowledge allowed some of His chosen servants to be put in prison.” He went on to say that even in prison, he will keep witnessing for the Lord and leading others to Christ. Do continue to pray for our dear brother as he carries out the ministry entrusted to him. Praise God that a number of his cellmates have chosen to follow Christ through his witness. May the Lord’s comfort and encouragement be very real to Manja and his family at this time. We will keep you posted as we receive further details.
