Nepal is a rugged and beautiful landlocked country nestled between the two giants of China and India. It is best known for Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. Nepal was closed off from the rest of the world until 1950 when it opened its borders. Over the last 60 years, people from all over the world have come to Nepal to see what it has to offer… towering mountains, fast flowing rivers, its mysticism, exotic cultures and warm people.
Nepal is considered among the world’s least developed countries. Missionaries first entered into Nepal in the 1950s, primarily in the fields of medicine and education. Although legally restricted from evangelism, early missionaries showed the love of Christ through their lives and service as the church was born. Although starting slow, it matured through much persecution. With the advent of relative freedom and democracy in 1990, the indigenous church exploded and is now counted among one of the fastest growing churches in the world. Despite this growth, there are still many areas with people groups who still have yet to hear about His love.
TEAM Nepal first entered Nepal in 1968 to meet the medical needs of the people in the far west. Today, the members of TEAM Nepal continue to work with the Nepali government and the national church to improve the lives of Nepalese in health and education. We also envision a disciple-making Body of Christ in every ethnic group in Nepal, transforming communities and redeeming their culture.
This video, created by short-term worker Jamin Walsh in 2013, gives you a good glimpse of life in Nepal.
