The Himalaya chain is spread southeast to northwest across the Asian continent. What is called the ‘Indian Himalayas’ is that part of the Himalayan chain which lies within Indian Territory. In the east, the Indian Himalaya originates from a knot between Myanmar. China and India. The chain continues to the border of Bhutan. Beyond that lies Sikkim, home to many peaks including the world’s third highest, Kangchenjunga. The Himalayan range west of Sikkim forms part of Nepal until you reach the border of Kumaun and Garhwal. From here the Indian Himalayan chain continues without a break through Kinnaur, Spiti, Ladakh and lastly East Karakoram.
India is a vast country with the Himalayan Range forming its northern boundary. Its climate and geography are complex, so when considering your trip you need to plan carefully where to go, when to go and what your budget is. The initial experience of India - the heat, the noise and the street life, the vibrant colours and the multitudes of people - may bewilder and exhaust the first - time visitor, but the country and its people are friendly and hospitable. Once you have spent some time here everything will fall into place, and you will be amply rewarded with your first glimpse of the Himalayan peaks, one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in the world.
The Himalaya, "home of the snows", is the most impressive system of mountains on the planet, and for centuries the setting for epic feats of exploration and mountain climbing, are a world into themselves.

Married Charmian Jacobson, June 13, 1942
Born Again spiritually in 1929, and received the baptism with the Holy Spirit at the same time.
Charmian was Born Again at age 10, and received the baptism with the Holy Spirit at age 21.
This is the true story of an ordinary man who has experienced an extraordinary series of events.
When we first heard of Roland Buck, we had been sharing the story of how God had placed a special warrior angel with us to protect us from the
fiery darts of the devil until Jesus comes back. A couple asked us, "Have you heard about the pastor in Boise, Idaho, who has been having
visitations from angels? They have been talking to him and bringing messages from God."
Even in these days when the supernatural power of God is more in evidence than ever before, this shocked us; especially when Doug and Ruth told
us that Gabriel was the one who brought the messages! For a moment it sounded like the most wayout
statement we had ever heard, but somehow
or other, there was such a ring of truth to it that we had a hungering created in our hearts to hear more!
Our busy schedule kept us from calling this pastor to find out any of the details, but in God's perfect plan he kept nudging and nudging us to contact
Roland Buck about writing a book. We were still too bogged down with other work, so we didn't do it! Then God really got busy when we continued
being too busy! He brought a couple down to Houston from Sitka, Alaska, who had stopped by Eugene, Oregon, and picked up a series of "angel"
tapes they wanted us to listen to. They were bubbling over because they had listened to these tapes all the way from Oregon to Texas. All they
could say was, "You've got to listen to them you've
got to listen to them!"
And listen we did! Every time we got in the car, the tape player came on with another angel tape. At night when we went to bed, we went to sleep
listening to "angel" tapes, until one Friday afternoon Charles said, "I am utterly compelled to call Pastor Buck to see if we can interview him with the
idea of writing a book. These messages from the angels are so fantastic, the entire world needs to hear them." Frances was equally fascinated with
the idea of angels talking to an individual, so we both went to the telephone to make the call.
Pastor Buck immediately invited us to minister in his church in the evenings and said he would be more than happy to cooperate with interviews in
the daytime. Although he assured us that the heart of the messages the angels had given him were on the tapes we had listened to, he said there
might be some extras we would be interested in hearing. We could hardly wait to get there!
We arrived on a Sunday evening just minutes before the church service, and afterwards we went out for a bite to eat with Roland and Charmian
Buck. If there had been any skepticism in our hearts before then, it was gone as he began to share from his heart some of the beautiful truths the
angels have brought to him directly from God.
That evening was followed by two days of interviews in which we saw the heart of a man who said, "I want God to be in focus and glorified. I do not
want any glory for myself." We asked him many of the questions you might ask: "Was it an unusual day when you had the first experience?" He said,
"No, it was just an ordinary, runofthemill
day before I went to bed that night. Angels are the last thing I would have thought of when I sat up in
We were both fascinated with his knowledge, not only of the Bible, but of the scriptural references as well. It seemed his total conversation was
direct from the Word of God! We asked him if he had always had the good memory which he has had since he returned from the Throne Room. He
said, "I would have to say 'no.' Before this experience I had to use the scriptures that I knew, so I studied and read the Bible over and over again. I
have been in the ministry many, many years, and I always had to use a concordance to look up verses, but for the 2,000 verses God gave me I don't
have to do that any more. I don't even have to read them from the Bible when I speak, because I JUST KNOW THEM!"
One of the things that spoke to our hearts about the genuineness of these experiences was the fact that they all tied back to the Bible!
One night Charles said, "Can you imagine people believing the son of a Jewish carpenter who came up and said, 'I am the way, the truth, and the
life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me!" (John 14:6).
We find it easier to believe the stories of angelic visitations in the twentieth century than it was for those people to believe that this ordinary young
man was Jesus, the Son of God!
Some people didn't believe that story. Some did! It will be the same way today. Some will believe this story. Some won't. We do! Whether you
believe it or not, this book will cause you to see God's love in a greater way than ever before and it will make Jesus come alive to you! It will give a
feeling of living right now in the limitless dimension of eternity!

A Word From the Wife of Roland Buck
What an exciting day to be alive! Although we have the darkness of wickedness on every hand, we have the assurance of God caring through a
great supernatural renewal in our day.
A spiritual awakening is always characterized by miracles of healing, many conversions and a new touch in lives.
Part of the special work God is doing is a broader revelation of himself through the messages brought by angelic visitation.
To think that our family and church could be a part of this expression of his love is more than I can comprehend.
Two questions people ask me when they know that my precious husband has had many angelic encounters are: "Have you seen an angel," and
"Why did God choose your husband?"
I have not yet had an angelic encounter, but at times when I have gone to bed at night I have experienced such an overwhelming inflow of God's
presence that I have had to go downstairs to praise and worship him. I am very much at peace because I know God does everything right. My
husband is the leader and the one who is ministering to the people, so God has laid his hand especially on him. Who am I to question God? Our
love is so close and we share the ministry so much together that although I have not seen an angel, I have been abundantly blessed as my husband
pours out to me the truths that God has shown to him.
In answer to the second question, "Why did God choose him?" you must understand my evaluations are purely human because we cannot limit God.
In the first place, my husband is not easily swayed. We have pastored in Boise, Idaho, for 29 years. Through the years I have seen such a
confidence and trust in God that he has been like a rock of Gibraltar.
He has maintained a steady, even ministry in spite of socalled
"fads" in religious circles not
"swayed with every wind of doctrine," but weighing
carefully those things which could be of a questionable nature.
He has always been a great student of the Word and in his ministry has built a bridge for the unbeliever instead of a barrier to the kingdom of God.
The angelic encounters have not been his first knowledge of God dealing with him in a special way. Many times he has come to bed in the morning
after God has spoken to him through the night hours regarding truths in the Word, giving him many scriptures to bear out the particular message he
wanted to give him.
His consistency and stability have created within our four children and me a trust in God that is unwavering. He has suffered three heart attacks and
one heart arrest, but through it all the peace of God was felt within our whole family. God has given us a wonderful heritage.
Although my husband has meditated a great deal on the Word, he is not a mystic, but very human and a person I have grown to love and trust.
God can do as he pleases. Didn't he visit many people in the Old and New Testaments? He is still able to do the same in these days God
God of the supernatural who
can deny it?
Encounter (Ch. 1)
The most outstanding and thrilling thing that has ever taken place in my life has been the angelic visitations that have occurred during the past two
God made it very clear to me that I am to share what happened in my life so I am passing on descriptions of what I have seen, experiences I have
had, and messages I have been given.
God is illuminating truths of the Bible in unprecedented ways prior to the return of Jesus. Revelations are being brought forth in all ministries flowing
in the Spirit. In this relation, God quickened my spirit to John 16:1215:
"Oh, there is so much more I want to tell you, but you can't understand it now.
When the Holy Spirit, who is truth, comes, he shall guide you into all truth, for he will not be presenting his own ideas, but will be passing on to you
what he has heard. He will tell you about the future" (TLB). Jesus spoke these words.
I have written these encounters and messages with the limitation of my own human understanding. In doing this, I have made references to what the
angels have said, but not with the thought of quoting them verbatim, except where I have so stated. When you consider that there have been some
fifty hours of angelic conversation which I have condensed with my own words and understanding into this single volume, you can perhaps realize
