Foreword

‘Let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us,’ (Hebrews 12.1, Living Letters).

It is God, our loving Heavenly Father who sets the race before us. He has planned in Eternity what He would have ua do, and He: equips us for every step of the way. For our part we are to keep at it – and to run!

Our Father knows what lies ahead, He knows also how much longer we have before the Lord Jesus comes for His own, and the ‘day’ is finished.

Looking back over the years since 1960, how gracious the Lord has been to us as a Mission. No less than fifty colleagues have been given to us, the· work has extended into the West, as well as showing steady growth in Pokhra.

After being refused four out of five places where we sought permission to start new dispensaries in 1969, only two years later the government policy was completely reversed, and we were asked to open several small hospitals in the West, but this has to be ratified by Central Government. Surely God Himself is opening these large areas to us because the time is short…

A Mission Hospital at the Foot of Fish-Tail Mountain in Nepal

Lily M. O'Hanlon, At the Foot of Fish-Tail MountainThis little book is considered by the staff of the International Nepal Fellowship to be the most significant publication in the mission’s history. Following the opening of Nepal’s borders to ex-patriate missionaries in 1952, it tells of the story of founding of the mission work at the Shining Hospital in Pokhara.

Foreword

This is a most disturbing book: it is an account of a modern miracle. It is far more than a record of a great missionary adventure. It is convicting and challenging. It has made me thoroughly ashamed of myself, and my so much more easy pilgrimage.

Dr. Lily O’Hanlon, and her colleague, Hilda Steele, set off at the call of God to be ready to enter the closed land of Nepal, directly the “gate” was open and the needed permissions granted.

Nothing daunted by the difficulties, disappointments, and delays, they waited and worked among the border villages for sixteen years, always fully persuaded that what God had promised them He was able to perform.

And now He has done it. The redeeming love of Christ is known to some in that hitherto unopened territory of God’s world. His two intrepid ambassadors had none of the comforts of modern travel in reaching their promised land. They walked, they climbed, they trekked, often without knowing where they would rest the following night. But they arrived! …

The “fires” in the title of this book are Nepali Christian workers who sought to bring the gospel to their fellow countrymen and women. “Fish-Tail” is the magnificent Mount Machapuchare which dominates the sky-line of the city of Pokhara in Central Nepal. This little book tells the story of some of these fire brands. It was published by the Nepal Evangelistic Band in 1959 and reproduced here by kind permission of the International Nepal Fellowship.

Foreword

There are expositors who teach that the seven Letters to the Churches in Revelation 2 and 3 are descriptive of the seven epochs in history which must be completed before the Return of the Lord. Most of them have made comparisons which suggest that today we are in the final·epoch descriptive of the Laodicean Church. Yet surely the Philadelphian experience of the open and shut door is incredibly interpretative of our generation. The door is closed in China; it is almost closed in other territories where permission for continuing work begun many years ago is ungraciously given, and then chiefly for educational or medical reasons. It would seem that to-day doors that were once wide open are certainly closing. It is equally true that doors that have been fastened against the Christian Missionary for centuries are now beginning to open. Since there are no chance happenings in sovereign grace it must be in the Will of God that Nepal has opened its doors, and therefore the following contribution by one of the pioneer missionaries, one of the first to pass through the open door, is not only of interest, but of great value….
