My name is Gorakh Majhi and I am from Chandrapur (Paurai and Rautahat). Many people living here are Majhi and that is why it is called Majhi Tole. I have a beautiful wife and three children, and we received Christ in 2011 at Paurai. A few months after, we went to ‘Dhulikhel’ and started to attend Dhulikhel Friends Church, where we were baptized in 2012. I grew in my faith there and then returned to ‘Paurai’ (Cha’pur) in 2013. There, I met Kedar Rai who had left his previous Church due to a doctrinal issue. We discussed and prayed together about starting a new fellowship in Paurai. We felt and started Paurai fellowship with only six people.
In 2017, Friends CHE (Community Health Evangelism) Ministry entered our community through Suleman Rai. Friends CHE helped by organizing the CHE Vision Seminar in February 2017. I was not interested initially. I didn’t understand what CHE was and why it was helpful to our church. So, I discussed with brother Kedar about this matter. Since he knew Suleman Rai well, we agreed to host the Vision Seminar in our community. After the Vision Seminar, I really understood what CHE was and how it works for developing individuals and community both physically and spiritually.
All of this caused us to start Paurai CHE Committee in our own community. Now, Friends CHE Ministry is helping facilitate the program and provide different CHE trainings. We can offer health lessons and spiritual lessons as well. After learning from different CHE trainings, we are reflecting and trying to be an example to our community; so that we can witness to others. We even have picture booklets that have been very helpful in sharing our faith and knowledge to our neighbors.
I would like to thank Friends CHE, as we have benefitted both physically and spiritually through this ministry and are able to reach out to non-believers in our community with ease.
