Nepal Update - May 2018

Overview of Progress

Located in the Himalayas, and known for its rich cultural history, diverse geography, and Mount Everest, Nepal is a country of over 26 million people. However, while this country has worked hard to increase their economic growth; political instability and a poor infrastructure coupled with devastating earthquakes in 2015 and recent flooding have impacted an estimated 680,000 vulnerable children. Food scarcity and limited access to water, sanitation, healthcare, and education has created a crisis in Nepal. 

But there’s Hope! The Church in Nepal is one of the fastest growing in the world and churches are supporting their communities as Nepal continues to heal and rebuild.

SARA Ministries is our partner program in Nepal and provides care for over fifty orphans and vulnerable children in the capital city of Kathmandu.

Hope Broadcasted

Recently Nepal passed an Anti-Conversion law criminalizing Christian Conversion and Evangelism. This has left the Nepalese Christians fearful of the implications for publicly professing their faith. However, the Nepalese people love to celebrate the Christmas holiday. On Christmas Day 2017 SARA Ministries had an opportunity of a lifetime and was permitted the opportunity to present a televised Christmas special and shared the message of hope found in the Gospel of Luke.  

The two broadcasts were viewed by an estimated 500,000 Nepalese people and the live tapings were attended by government Cabinet ministers, military officials, and high-profile people. The response was overwhelming, and people responded by calling in to learn more about the God of love and redemption and it opened doors for the Christian church in Nepal to respond in love. 

The staff at SARA Ministries working with the educational programs and children’s home feel a renewed boldness in their faith as they minister to the children in their care and are grateful that they have been able to share the transformational good news of Jesus Christ with such a far-reaching audience. Please continue to pray for their safety in light of the recent Anti-Conversion legislation.
