Featured Missionary: Cory and April McTague

June 01, 2014 at 11:00 AM

This week's featured missionary family is Cory and April McTague, Himal Baptist Church, Kathmandu, Nepal. 

While a college freshman, Cory McTague picked up a book on the people of Tibet, a mountainous region on the border between China and India. He read about their great spiritual need, and wondered if God would ever call him to minister there. The thought stayed with him, and after graduating in 2006, he and his wife April announced their desire to take the gospel to the Tibetan people. They chose the country of Nepal, in the heart of the Himalayan mountains.

The couple arrived in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, in May 2009. They spent the next eighteen months with language school and an internship in a Kathmandu church. Then, in late 2010, they launched Himal Baptist Church, a ministry to the Tibetan people of Nepal. The mission work has seen many salvations and baptisms, and the McTagues are already training a Tibetan assistant pastor with goal of establishing an indigenous church as soon as possible.
