If you’ve traveled to Nepal lately to help with evangelism and church growth, you were probably amazed. In one of the modern era’s most notable turn-arounds, Nepal has become the success story of the current age with church growth hitting record levels in the past 20 years. Just when you thought the country was about to go completely Christian, the government, in a stunning reversal of modern trends, recently made it illegal to convert or even evangelize.
Obviously, the Lord’s work will still go forward. It’s unstoppable. But for now, this hiccup of our decade looks likely to make it tougher for groups to make disciples and multiply. Pray for a reversal of this persecution. (Thanks Justin and others.)
