Pastor Dan (Dinesh), Sadhana & their 3 children (Columbus, Grace & Joy) are originally from Nepal. They first came to HK as asylum seekers due to persecution from the government. By the grace of God, they are now in Vermont. They have also passed their US Citizenship Test and are now US Citizens.
Both Pastor Dan’s (Dinesh’s) & Sadhana’s heart are to do the work of God wherever they are sent. The moment they arrived in Vermont in January 2011, they began reaching out to fellow Nepalese there and have since started a church – The Vine Nepalese Christian Church.
Pastor Dan (Dinesh) & family were able to purchase a small house in Essex, Vermont in March 2015. The house was inspected, however as the ground was very frozen at the time of inspection, the septic tank was not inspected. They were assured by the realtor that the system was functional and without problems.
Recently,they discovered major problems with the system – the leach field had failed and the septic system is no longer functioning properly. In its current state, their septic system is a violation of their town law and a hazard to the health of Pastor Dan’s (Dinesh’s) family and neighbors.
An engineer was called in to diagnose and fix the problem. Unfortunately, the current septic system cannot be fixed and anew replacement is required. They are legally required to install a mound septic system on their property which is more costly than other systems. A few different companies were called to access the situation and the lowest estimated cost of the replacement is between USD20,000-USD30,000.
Pastor Dan (Dinesh) is currently a volunteer pastor, hence does not draw income from the church. He works as a part-time Nepali interpreter and care taker of new refugees in Vermont to support his family.
What we can do:
Given the financial situation of the family, Pastor Dan (Dinesh) & family are not able to shoulder the cost of replacing the system. We are hoping to help Pastor Dan (Dinesh) to raise funds to help cover the cost of the septic tank replacement. We are reaching out to you - friends of Pastor Dan (Dinesh) & Sadhana, those whom has been blessed by Pastor Dan (Dinesh) & Sadhana and those who are reading this and feel that they could help this dear brother and his family in serious need.
