We are a few days from heading back to Nepal.  The team is excited for the opportunity to serve along the local leaders who do an amazing job!  God is doing amazing things because of their faithfulness.  This year, we will work in dark areas where girls are being taken and sold into sex trafficking is a major issue.  Please continues to pray that God will reveal himself through dreams and visions to these dangerous men.  We are praying for a supernatural trip where God is glorified!  Thank you for praying!

Below is a short video which highlights the sex traffic problem in Nepal. We know this is not an easy seven-minute video to watch. Yet, this is the reality for too many young ladies.  As a father of two amazing young girls, this truly breaks my heart and praying for change.

Urgent update and prayer request

February 15, 2019 0

Update: We have shifted our target area to one of the highest sex trafficking areas in Nepal.  This area is spiritually dark and our presence will not go unnoticed.  I can't disclose the area, but the Lord knows and we truly value and appreciate your prayers! We will spend prayer walking, training, and encouraging local churches and leaders. So, thankful for each of you and what God is going to do through your prayers!

One of the aspects of mission work I enjoy is involving others!  We all have a unique role to play and this year is no different.  Next month, we will head back to the Himalayas. Our team is working with local pastors to go into unreached villages. This is our third year and my spirit is filled with expectancy.  We can't wait to see what God is going to do!  I would love for you to pray for our small team of 3 as we prepare and go! 

I am also selling shirts to help raise necessary funds and raise awareness of the work. The cost is $20 for S-XL and $23 for XXL or XXXL.  There is a $3 shipping fee if you are not local. Thank you for your prayers and support!  We are ordering on March 8th.  Soft shirts are a tad less generous of a fit than a normal t-shirt… they’re a nicer, softer t-shirt… but if you are between two sizes I would definitely suggest choosing the larger!  

If interested, please send me an email to and let me know what size and address if you're not local.  You can pay Kathy, me or Pay with Paypal. You can also donate directly through our church by contacting Whitney Warren via email  

Sorry, I had the wrong email on the last post.

I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you or your small group to discuss our past experience and explore upcoming opportunities to get involved and go!. Please click this link to view pictures and videos from past trips.

This year, we will focus on a different people group and explore an opportunity to partner with a local strategy coordinator for three years.  As you can see from the chart below there is a lot of work to be done.

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.

Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God

Psalm 90:2

God is speaking through dreams and visions

January 30, 2019 0

Please pray for our missionaries and the national leaders as God continues to speak through dreams and visions in a supernatural way.  I believe God is calling this generation and the next to rise and take our place amongst the history makers who set the course before us.  

Romans 10: 13-15
13 for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? 15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!”

Acts 2:17 
‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says,
‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
And your young men shall see visions,
And your old men shall dream dreams;

Why we must pray and go!

January 16, 2019 0
This week, Open Doors USA released the World Watch List—an in-depth report on the top 50 countries where the persecution of Christians is highest. "Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body" (Heb. 13:3). 

This is why we must pray and go!  Nepal and India are in the top 25!

Pray for Nepal

September 18, 2018 0

 The power of pray is God allowing his people to cry out for the Nations!
            Psalm 96 English Standard Version (ESV)

Worship in the Splendor of Holiness

 Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
    sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
    tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
    his marvelous works among all the peoples!
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
    he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
    strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    bring an offering, and come into his courts!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;[a]
    tremble before him, all the earth!
10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!
    Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
    he will judge the peoples with equity.”
11 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
    let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
12     let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
13     before the Lord, for he comes,
    for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
    and the peoples in his faithfulness.

Moldova 2018 - Kathy, Shannon, and Emmanuel

April 25, 2018 0

In the year 2000, Rob had the opportunity to go on a short-term mission trip through our church, to India.  That trip birthed a love in him for taking the gospel to the nations that eventually spread to the rest of the family when we had the awesome gift of going on a trip to Africa a few years later.  Through our love for missions and sharing God’s Word, we have been fortunate enough as a family to visit several more countries for Christ.

Our daughters have fallen in love with sharing Christ overseas, and Jessica even lived in Peru for three months after her high school graduation as a result of earlier trips.  We now have the opportunity for Emmanuel to see first-hand how wonderful it is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ before we head back to Africa.

June 28-July 7, 2018, our church will lead it’s 13th trip to Moldova to teach VBS and run a medical clinic in a village in Moldova.  With each trip, we reach a different village.  Shannon, Emmanuel and I will work with children in VBS.  We need prayer support.  We need our brothers and sisters in Christ to commit to pray for us ithat we would not miss a single moment God has planned for us to reach the people of Moldova. 

Thank you in advance for your support and prayers.  We are so very thankful to have fellow believers who have a heart for the lost.  We are praying that God blesses you immensely as you pray and give.

May God use us all for His glory among the nations until He returns,

Kathy, Shannon, and Emmanuel Compton
