In June 2018, the Asia Gateway Residential Training program, held at the Seminari Theologi Malaysia, brought together a colourful combination of cultures and personalities from seven nations across Asia.  Jamshed Gill arrived from Pakistan with high hopes to discover more about cross-cultural missions and in the course of his stay at Asia Gateway, he learned beyond that…   Jamshed is a pensive theologian; always looking deeper at the things before and around him, so that he can, in turn, do more. Reflecting on his childhood days, Jamshed remembers being “impressed by the services of the Church Mission Society (CMS) in Pakistan.” He recalls hundreds of students from other villages, who studied at the high school in his own village – men and women who went on to become great witnesses of Christianity in the whole area...

This can be challenging as he has to travel around 4 hours to and from GTS on the same day each week...

God is always at work; He is always changing circumstances that may seem impossible to us and stirring hearts that may face the most challenging situations. Ashish and Karuna, our new Co-Mission Partners, are witnesses to God's faithful hand in their ministry, as they teach various Diploma, Bachelor and Master theological courses at the Nepal Theological College (NTC), as well as other neighbouring bible colleges. In the past few months, both Ashish and Karuna have been increasingly heartened to see God using their skills and ministry to mould others. They see a deep hunger to learn God’s Word in every place they teach...
