• Refugee work

    One of our continual prayers at LifeBridge is that God would allow us to see the world through His eyes -- moving us to action when we see a hurting or broken brother. Our work with the refugee community downtown has been a truly life-changing experience for us.

  • It's God's Money...

    At LifeBridge, we intentionally do without some of the things we'd enjoy for ourselves so that we are able to give more away. A full 50% of all offerings given are set aside for helping the poor, serving in our community, and starting new churches and schools. While that forces us to "live lean", it has opened the door for all sorts of amazing ministry that has truly transformed lives.

  • Jesus Sent Out 72

    Following Christ is risky, messy and sometimes dangerous. It means going into places you might not normally go, loving people you wouldn’t normally love and risking losing everything for the sake of Jesus Christ. This is the life that Jesus lived, and calls us to live.

  • Homeless ministry

    After years of working with the Montrose Street Reach downtown, our church has become much more active in recent days with a local ministry called Cy-Fair Helping Hands, which works with the homeless and "sheltered homeless" (living in hotels/motels) in the Cypress area. We look forward to a growing relationship with them as we serve God's people together

    Nepal Mission Work

    One of the truly exciting opportunities that God has entrusted to our church is the opportunity to have a very hands on involvment in a church planting venture in Nepal. Through ServLife International, we are actively partnering with around 50 indigenous church planters in Nepal to bring the Gospel to the most remote villages in that country. We also sent full time missionaries there to help establish a micro-finance program in some of the most impoverished villages in extremely remote areas of Nepal. This is literally "ends of the earth" ministry that we are humbled and privileged to be a part of.

Nepal Mission Trip – Getting Situated

What an amazing first full day we had! Every single one of us is on a spiritual high as we have been amazingly humbled by what God is doing in this place and through these people.

Nepal is a city with many challenges and difficulties. Filth and ruin are everywhere. Poverty is rampant. There is very little in the way of infrastructure (poor sewage, no hot water, spotty electricity, etc) … and this is one of the few “modern” spots in Nepal. Already, we are bracing ourselves for our remote portion of the trip next week when we will experience a more third world environment.

But, it is so obvious to see Christ at work here. There is a hope and a conviction in the hearts of the Christ-followers here that is truly inspiring to be around. 30-40 years ago, Christianity was virtually non-existent Today, it has grown to almost 4% of the population, and we have the joy of seeing some of the ground floor work that is being done as the Christian faith gains a foothold in this predominantly Hindu and Buddhist country.

Yesterday, I had the privilege of teaching 45 Nepali church planters for close to 3 1/2 hours. They were so hungry for God’s word, sitting at the edge of their seat and writing down every Bible reference and taking meticulous notes. They prayed with a fervor and intensity, and their singing was absolutely beautiful…because it was from the very depth of their souls. Watching them served as a stark reminder of the complacency and lack of zeal that we so often bring into our worship life. Oh, that we would learn from them what it means to come into the presence of God!

During the afternoon, Gil had the chance to sit down one on one with about 10 of the pastors, to hear their story and what was going on in their churches. Wow, does he have some amazing stories to share with you! His comment yesterday was “I feel like we’re in the book of Acts.” Most of the people coming into Christianity are because of miraculous healing that are taking place all over here. Sick people are being healed, people with demon possession are being made well, and all sorts of things that are straight from the pages of the Bible. Amazing!

Julie and Sasha spent the afternoon at the orphanage, which they loved. The children are in the middle of school exams, though, so they didn’t get to spend much time with the children.

Then, last night, we were able to spend the evening with Abraham Tamang’s family at their home here in Kathmandu. It was wonderful to experience a “real” home and spend time getting a feel for what everyday life looks like in Nepal. Their entire family has a deep faith current running through it, they run a couple of orphanages, and are leaders in their church. Their pastor even stopped by as we shared a traditional Nepali meal and celebrated Asha’s one year birthday. Asha, by the way is doing better. She’s still a bit sick, but seems to be past the critical part of her sickness. Thanks for your prayers.

Today I teach for two more sessions and then lead closing worship. I am loving it, but for the first time in a long time I feel talked out. Gil is going to join me in teaching the last session. It is such a joy for me to see what God is doing in the hearts of all of team members. I wish everyone in our church could experience this…it’s the kind of thing that will change your life and shape your faith forever.

Thanks for your prayers.

Pastor Michael
