If interested in more information contact Dr. Dan Crawford, International Advocate for WestCoast Baptist Association at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMB Missionaries Visit New England
There is a couple that has served as IMB (International Mission Board) missionaries for 16 years that will be visiting New England this summer beginning July 16 for several weeks. They used to live in New England and still have family here.
There are two things you may be interested in considering:
1.) They may be open to speak at your church. If you would like such a visit, contact Tim Buehner at the BCNE.
2.) The couple needs a car to use for 2 to 3 weeks. They will arrive at Bradley airport in CT, spend time in CT and then go up to VT. If any church / church member could supply a loaner car for a time, it would be very, very helpful. The BCNE can provide a stipend to cover maintenance or insurance riders. Please contact Tim Buehner at BCNE if you can help. Email: email@example.com; Phone: 508-393-6013.
Nepali Community Radio Program with Global Reach in Jeopardy of Ending
Nepali Community Church of Cambridge, MA with Pastor Dan bk has been broadcasting a radio program called, “JEEVANKO UDESHYA: NEPALI MANKO NEPALI AWAJ” (The Purpose of Life: A Nepali Voice of a Nepali Heart). This radio program was initiated in 2011 with the purpose of sharing the good news with Nepali-speaking population in Greater Boston and around the globe. It is heard live worldwide online (via internet).
This radio program has gained popularity among Nepali-speaking population in diaspora. They have regular listeners in UK, Germany, Denmark, Portugal, Israel, Qatar, Dubai, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Korea, India, Nepal and the USA. Every week, they have a 15 minute program called, “Nepal Prasanga” (Nepal Update) that focuses on current Christian activities in Nepal. Then they have a program “Baibaliya Bahas” (The Bible: God’s Word and Our Interpretations). At the end of each program, they preach a 10 minute sermon. The program can be called “Radio Church” because it serves as a church service to many who do not get a day off on Sunday or Saturday to go to church due to their work. Their airing time is 9-10 pm every Tuesday.
This program can be listened at:
AM 1330 (Greater Boston Area) www.1330wrca.com (online) OR
online at Nepali Community Church website (click on Nepali Radio Greater Boston) OR
Get the tunein radio app free for download so you can listen in.
Sadly, the program has run out of funding for the upcoming year and they will have to discontinue this coming month. If you or your church wants to have worldwide impact through this project, perhaps you might partner with Pastor bk. You can reach him at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-932-9018. You can also contact Texas Partnerships by email at email@example.com or by phone at 214-828-5180.
Church Building in Worcester, MA needing Renovation Assistance

The building is in serious need of renovations and repairs. We are in the first phase of assessing work and planning for repairs and renovations over the next 18 months. If your church or ministry has people with ability to provide project management, skilled trades persons (some licensed in Massachusetts) and could pitch in to help us use this building again for the Lord’s Kingdom, please contact Tim Buehner at the BCNE (508-393-6013). We will have a need for Disaster Relief Recovery crews to do demolition as well. We will need volunteer short term construction teams as well. Work will include carpentry, masonry, electric, sheet rock / plaster, window repair / installation and painting.
