Not for the faint of heart, Nepal is home to eight of the world’s ten highest mountain peaks. Its 300 people groups remained isolated from the world until 1951, standing as one of the few countries never to be ruled by a colonial power. While it used to be the world’s only Hindu kingdom, it now stands as a secular democracy with some religious freedoms.
Nepal’s very first church was planted in 1952 with roughly 20 believers. Forged through persecution and suffering, over 850,000 people now profess Christ but much work remains to be done.
