Buddhists oust believers from their homes in Nepal

Pray for believers in Nepal who are
facing hardships for the sake of Christ.
Buddhists in Nepal drove a pastor and other believers from their village, accusing the pastor of bringing a foreign religion to the village and promoting teachings against society, reports VOM-USA.

The oppressors accused Christians in the village of using bribery and coercion to convert local residents to Christianity. It is also believed a six-year-old girl was sexually abused by one of the individuals who incited the expulsion.

A VOM worker has helped the victims resettle in another village and also prayed with the family of the girl who was abused.

You can help by praying.
  • Pray that the passion these believers have for Christ will be the light that draws others to Jesus (Matthew 5:14-16). 
  • Pray for healing for the girl who was abused. 
  • Please pray that hostility against Christians in Nepal will cease and that believers will be allowed to live and worship freely.
