Prayer Points – November 15
Prayer Points – November 15
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, UMN invites all people of prayer to set aside time daily to ask for God’s help in our work in Nepal. The time suggested for UMN staff is 3.00 pm. For our friends around the world, we ask that you join us either at the equivalent time in your country of 3 pm Nepal time, or whenever you are able. Many have found setting a daily alarm on their phone a useful reminder. 
Thank you for your fellowship in prayer.
Joel Hafvenstein 
“The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him. The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.”
Lamentations 3v24
We encourage everyone who is praying for UMN not only to raise our requests but to listen to God on UMN’s behalf. Please take time to read this Bible verse slowly to yourself. Pause and ask God to speak through His Word. Then read it slowly again. Settle and calm your mind before you pray.
Major Matters for Prayer
  • In Okhaldhunga the new oxygen plant house is almost complete with only painting work remaining. Our supplier will send oxygen plant for the installation within two weeks. Looking ahead the hospital needs a new ultrasound machine as the existing one is not working. Please pray for another vital piece of equipment.
  • Second year nursing examinations are being held at our college in Okhaldhunga. Pray for all nurses taking these important exams.
  • The Mission Hospital in Tansen is having a visit from some engineers and architects from the Article 25 organisation. Peter Lockwood will be accompanying them to help with long term infrastructure planning. Meanwhile there are discussions with the forest office about the use of land for the wastewater project. Everyone is very positive about the project but there are procedures needed to use this forestry land.
  • The hospital is still waiting for reimbursement for the last three months’ work from the Health Insurance Board. Please pray for quick reimbursement. We have cash flow issues as over 70% of our work is under this scheme. 
  • The Town Maternal and Child Health clinic was handed back to the district hospital last week as the provincial government felt it was time for them to run this without help. The Municipality has now asked us to restart in a new location in partnership with the municipality. In the meantime it will temporarily be run from the hospital.
