Summitview has a long history of missions involvement in Nepal
. Our connections with church leaders in the Kathmandu area began in 2007, and since 2010, we have fully funded the operation of the Godawari Children’s Home just outside Kathmandu. We sent aid in the aftermath of the earthquake in 2015. And earlier this year, by God’s leading, we entered the fight to bring justice to trafficked women in Nepal.
Andrea Baker, Vanessa Felhauer, Sarah Keck, Nicolle Kuester, Sarah Lemons and Amy Mihaly spent two weeks in Nepal this spring connecting with anti-trafficking organizations and ministering in villages that have been heavily targeted by traffickers.

It is estimated that evangelical Christians comprise only .5 to 1 percent of the Japanese population. The spiritual condition of the country is bleak, but God is working in this country — and Summitivew has been blessed with opportunities to contribute to that work.
Our involvement in Japan began in 2012 when a small group of Summitviewers flew over to help with relief work in the wake of the tsunami. God has continued to provide opportunities since then. Over the last four years, Summitview has provided financial support to the Cervenka family
. In November of 2012, Torgun Lovely, Lee Vary and Mark and Tiffany Schreiber spent a week
with the Cervenkas, scouting out
potential job and housing options. (The Schreibers even relocated to Japan before returning to the states because of their daughter Abby’s leukemia
In the summer of 2013, seven Summitviewers
worked with the Cervenkas in Tokyo and Hiroto Sawane (who studied at CSU and attended Summitview during his time in America) in Hanamatsu on a 10-day missions trip. Becky Keith was one of those seven, and on June 21, she goes back to Japan for a one-year missions trip. Becky and I talked about her upcoming trip via email, and this exchange — plus video of her conversation with Pastor Aaron Ritter from Sunday’s service — is what follows.

Giving financially to support the operation of the Godawari Children’s Home is a beautiful, Christ-magnifying thing. But as Mitch Majeski’s interview on Sunday morning with Heidi Fuhrman and Molly Smith revealed, there is a greater spiritual battle being waged — both here and in Nepal. Our awareness of this reality should bring an added depth of faith and prayer to our giving — and our living. Spiritual darkness is present. Real lives are at stake. Supporting the Children’s Home is not just an additional deduction on your taxes. This is real. And Jesus wants our full attention.
We are sent ones
. Heidi and Molly’s thoughts on Sunday were sobering and inspiring. If you weren’t at the service, the full interview is below. If you were there on Sunday, it’s worth another watch.
Please prayerfully consider giving to our 2016 Missions Fund. Go to summitview.com/missions
to learn more about our efforts in Nepal and to make a pledge toward our goal of $36,000. This amount will cover all of the operational costs of the Children’s Home for a whole year, and we hope to have the full amount pledged by the end of April.

This week, Mark and Tiffany Schreiber — Summitview missionaries in Japan
— received some very difficult news: Their 13-year-old daughter, Abby, has been diagnosed with leukemia.
The Schreibers moved to Tokyo in July to contribute to a team of missionaries led by David Cervenka. Mark and Tiffany were working at the American School in Japan (ASIJ). Their three girls, Abby, Anna and Lilly, also were students at ASIJ.
This is not Abby’s first battle with leukemia. When Abby was 3-years-old, she was diagnosed with leukemia. After nearly three years of treatment and five years in remission, Abby had been considered cured. Obviously, this is devastating news for the Scheibers. They will be arriving in Colorado tomorrow to begin Abby’s treatment.
