Destination: Nepal


For today’s blog post, I thought I’d do a quick fact info on Nepal. Unfortunately, this past Saturday Nepal suffered a devastating earthquake that was measured at 7.8 on the richter scale. More than 4,000 people pronounced dead and many more injured.

Nepal is located southwest of China and northeast of India. It is a landlocked area with about 120 different languages. More than 10 million speak Nepali as their first language and many others speak it as a second language.

The population in Nepal is over 29 million inhabitants.

I have never been to Nepal and only imagined what it would be like in my mind by viewing pictures and surfing the net.  I did discover there is a BIG spiritual need in Nepal because the 2014 yearbook showed that there were only 1,911 publishers with an average bible studies of 3,890. And there are still many more interested because Memorial attendance was at 5,556. Definitely something to think about…

May we continue to have Nepal in our mind and to pray for our dear brothers and sisters there.
