...the harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few
I was extremely anxious when the message came to me that our Brother Wesley Graham has gone to meet our Lord Jesus Christ. This news shocked me and the Free Presbyterian Church of Nepal as a denomination. Humanly speaking Rev Graham was the foundation of the work in Nepal. But he is no more with us in the body, what sad news for all of us brethren! We feel that the foundation is broken!

When we met Rev Graham, we were young in our Christian lives; he was like our father who cared for us, fed us, looked after us in every area of Christian lives. He taught us from the Word of God as the little child needs milk and then we gradually progressed to meat and other food. But now this man has been separated from us. What tragic news for the people of Nepal!

We have had a very close walk with Brother Wesley since 2005. Since then he has showed us the way to live our Christian lives. He showed us the way to reach to the unreached and, as a result, we commenced the radio broadcasting in 2007. He showed us the way to develop the leadership in the church and, as a result, we commenced the Bible College in 2010. He showed us the way to make a strong Free Presbyterian Church of Nepal as a church body and, as a result, we were able to establish our Presbytery in 2013. But now we hear that this man is passed away and is united with the Lord - what tearful news for all of us!

There were innumerable ways that Rev Graham was involved in supporting the work to spread the gospel of Christ. He travelled from the far East to the far West and from North to South, to equip the brethren in Nepal. He slept in a bus while traveling; he walked many hours in the heat, but he never complained in the work of God. He was such a man of God, a man of inspiration. He has left us so many memories.

Throughout almost 15 years, we have had the privilege of spending much time with our brother Wesley Graham. During those years, we had a very close fellowship with him day after day, month after month, and year after year. We had a very blessed time with our Brother Wesley. But that time of fellowship has now ended!

We found that Rev Graham lived his life as he taught and preached. "Preaching and living go together", he used to say. He lived a life of example, and he fought a very good fight of the faith. Now God has taken him to be with Him forevermore.

We would like to offer our heartfelt sympathies. We are praying for his family during this difficult time. We accept that, sooner or later, we too will face death, but we will meet Wesley in Heaven; united with our Lord.

Your Brother from Nepal
