Covid-19 Update Nepal

By: Rev. Sonam Kabo, BMI Regional Director for South Asia and Nepalese People

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress. My God, in whom I trust. Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.” Psalm 91:1-3

March 19:

As the whole world is reeling from the pandemic of Covid-19, although there has been no positive cases as stated by the Government, yet the fear and nervousness has hit every sector. And just yesterday in the evening, the Government announced that all exams from the National level for Grade 10 to the universities has been suspended for an indefinite period of time. Actually, the Grade 10 National level examination was supposed to start from today and from Elim we had 18 students who were supposed to be writing their exam. Even our school’s final exam which had started from last Sunday 15th of March and was scheduled to finish by this Friday, came to an abrupt end. 

But through God’s grace, we are fine and although there are shortages of face masks and hand sanitizers and some essential items like cooking gas etc. as there has been some black marketing, but the Government has promised to relieve these artificial shortages. The country of Nepal is not really locked down yet, but the Government has issued ordinances that no gathering of more than 25 people will be allowed in any events be it religious gatherings or social. In this case, we as a church will be meeting in groups of less than twenty-five people and pray for the situation of the world. Regarding our other training ministries, where we had been invited but because of the current situation, it is being halted for now.

All international flights have been or will be cancelled by tomorrow, but some domestic flights will still be operating. Land borders with India and China have been closed, and this is the reason for panic buying, as most of our goods come from these two countries.

However, we as a family (The Kabos and our loved ones in Nepal, India ,US, Canada, and Europe) are all fine and doing well.  We want to thank all the BMI family for your prayers and concern. We are upholding all of you in our prayers too.

We would like to quote this verse from Psalm 121: 7 over you all:

The LORD will keep you from all harm-He will watch over your life;”

March 23:

Nepal is now on total lockdown due to confirmed 19 cases. Let’s continue to pray (2 Chronicles 7:14) and pray for God’s grace and His love to prevail on this earth. Many people in the world still have not been saved in Jesus Christ our Savior. In Christ, we are a holy nation and royal priesthood and we have been purchased with the precious blood of the Lamb!
