Nepal 2015: Prayer Requests

In a matter of days, on Friday, January 30th, 2015, four members of the Candlewood Church family will leave for Nepal for a month. The team is excited for the opportunities to share the love and saving faith of Jesus.

Nepal, a country situated between India and China amongst the Himalaya Mountains, is one of the world’s poorest nations. 75% of the population is Hindu, while 2.9% claim the Christian faith, approximately 850,000 Christians and growing. Those who convert to Christianity face the potential risk of fines, a three-year imprisonment, or expulsion. Despite these risks, the people of Nepal are amazed by the Gospel, the good news they have never heard. Missionaries have witnessed many profess a newfound faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

It is with great faith that the team goes to Nepal. The team needs your prayers throughout the month of February. Here are the specific prayer requests:
