Almost 30,000,000 people live in Nepal with as many as 100 ethnic groups. Caste is often as important a distinction as ethnicity in this strongly Hindu culture. Around 55% of the population are unevangelized and a staggering 309 people groups are unreached. Holistic ministries have powerfully demonstrated the love of Christ in practical and spiritual ways. (Above information taken from Operation World.) Pray for the church in Nepal and for a strong witness for Jesus. Persecution of believers continues especially to those who share their faith with Hindus. Some say the percentage of Christians in the country is 2.8%.
