A personal invitation:
Executive Director Rev. Steve Parelli and Coordinator Jose Ortiz of Other Sheep invite you  to arrange a personal meeting with them at Gokarna Forest Resort Kathmandu, June 4 - 9, Rajnikunja, Gokarna, Kathmandu, NEPAL
Dear Friend,
Other Sheep is a multicultural ecumenical Christian ministry that works worldwide for the full inclusion of LGBT people of faith within their respective faith traditions.  Other Sheep connects people with people and people with resources through networking and by introducing educational materials primarily from the Other Sheep websites.
Upon our meeting, we will give you a complimentary copy of the book The Children Are Free: Reexamining the Biblical Evidence on Same-sex Relationships by Rev. Jeff Miner and John Tyler Connoley and introduce you to additional material from our websites on topics like: What is homosexuality?  What is the evangelical "ex-gay" movement?  What is the responsibility of the church and state in matters of same-sex marriage?  What is the work of Other Sheep in Latin America and East Africa?  What are the gay organizations within evangelical and mainline protestant denominations?  Christian authors, leaders and pastors who do support same-sex relationships.  And more . . .
We are a Christian gay couple in a committed relationship of 12 years.  We were married in the State of California, August 25, 2008.  We both grew up in evangelical churches and made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ at a young age.  Each graduated from a Bible college.  In addition Rev. Parelli has an MDiv and Jose, his life partner and spouse, has a Masters in Applied Psychology.  Rev. Parelli, formerly a Baptist minister, is an ordained clergy member of the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC).
If you would like to arrange a meeting with us, email us at or phone Gokarna Forest Resort at 977-1-4451212 and leave a message with the front desk.
Blessings and Peace,
Steve & Jose
