Loving our neighbors

There seems to be a lot of division in the world at the moment. The debates during the Brexit and the US Presidential campaigns seemed to have polarized both countries. Both sides in each debate relied on headline grabbing statements that were condemning of the other side, belittling their opinion and trying to make the opposition feel inferior. Rather than openness, sincere debate, in a spirit of honesty and respect, the tactics have led to huge divisions in each nation. Read more →

Casting our nets

In August 2013 I was encouraged by the previous leadership at KISC to spend time on a private retreat to pray and reflect on what God’s plans were for the new site and fundraising. During my 24 hours away one of the passages I felt God using to talk to us was from Luke 5 v 4-6:
‘(Jesus) said to Simon “Put out into deep water and let down the nets for a catch”. Simon answered “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets”.When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.’ Read more →

Justice

Our term verse is Zechariah 7:9
This is what the Lord Almighty says, “Administer true justice: show mercy and compassion to one another.” As I was reading these verses recently, I was reminded of one incident in my life. It was on 2 March 2014. I was invited by one of our partner schools in a small village near Tansen, Palpa to be part of an opening and handover ceremony of the water tank that was funded by KISC EQUIP. Read more →

God's Provision

In my role as a director of a property investment company in the UK before coming to Nepal, I was responsible for many property acquisitions and disposals. Coming to Nepal I didn't expect to be quite so active in property agreements as I have been over the last three years: the sports site, the two new Operations buildings in a space of a couple of months, moving the KISC guest house to a new building following the earthquake. Read more →

Struggle in Transition

When we look back at this history of KISC, especially during the time of transition in 2004 when KISC was brought under the ownership of HDCS, there were times we were very discouraged. At times we even asked ourselves if it is worth it because of four years of hard work did not bring any significant results. It was contrary to our expectations. It took nearly 4 years to negotiate with various government agencies. Read more →
