After asking the Holy Spirit to direct their path, missionaries in the Himalayas visited some ancient ruins and found a monastery. They were made welcome. “We are followers of Jesus, the man and God greater than any other god,” lead missionary Tyler Connell told the monk. “I once heard of Jesus in India, but wasn’t able to do any reading on who He was,” the monk replied in good English.
“Can we introduce you to Him through the power of the Holy Spirit and the presence of Jesus?” Tyler asked. The monk said “yes” and put out his hands. Tyler recounts, “suddenly the power and peace of God descended, his eyes got big, he began to take steps back and began to laugh and shake his head in disbelief. He said he’d never felt a peace or power like this. We proceeded to preach the Gospel and gave him a Bible. He insisted we return in the morning to meet the other monks.”
The following morning the missionaries returned and found a monk who had injured his back in the earthquake. They prayed for him and the power of God granted healing. After preaching the Gospel through a translator, and handing out more Bibles, the missionaries skipped down the mountain rejoicing with gratitude for the day Jesus invaded a Buddhist monastery in Nepal!
