God's word never returns empty

While shepherding his animals, Dul, a local man living deep in the Himalayas found a discarded New Testament.  The word “Holy” caught his attention, and he took the Bible and began reading.  As he understood that “whoever believes has eternal life,” he resolved to follow what he read. 

Later that year, the OM Team that had left the New Testament travelled through his area to follow up their earlier Bible distributions.  When they came to Dul’s household, which had been missed in the earlier distributions because nobody was home, he immediately invited them into his house. 

Holding the Bible he had found, he shared his story and asked the team many questions about his reading.  As a result, Dul and his wife chose to follow Jesus and continue to read and grow.  The team was encouraged that God had made a way for Dul and his wife to hear the Good News!
