The following is a Christian Work Project sponsored in part by a grant from the Boston Baptist Social Union.

Somerville Nepalese Ministry

Mission and Purpose

The city of Boston has been a one of the major Nepalese immigrant cities in the United States of America. According to the report of greater Boston Nepali Society there are more than 15,000 Nepalese live and work in the Greater Boston area. As a matter of fact, Nepalese people are emigrating from other parts of the States to this area because of the ease of job finding, colleges and family orientation etc.

The United States of America has adopted 100,000 Nepali Bhutanese refugees. There are 21 families who live in Worchester MA and 6 families in Lynn MA, as well as many families who now live in NH.

Having been burdened for Christ, my family and I moved to Boston in 2004 to start a Nepali fellowship here in Boston. It was a very challenging situation for us in the begining because of the new place, culture, language and not having any connection with organizations. In 2007, by God's grace, we met Mr. Ed Hobart at Somerville Community Baptist Church who encouraged us to continue to spread God's Word to the Nepalese community. The result is that were able to start a Nepali fellowship in November 2008. Since, then we have been continuously meeting at Somerville Community Baptist Church.

The purpose of requesting the grant is to continue to uphold the church planting ministry in the greater Boston area. The grant will be used for the glory of God such as conducting Bible study, leadership trainings, and new family visiting.
