Why you should serve
The need in Nepal
With 81% of the population identifying as Hindu, Nepal is a nation in dire need of the gospel. Many children in this region are at risk for trafficking, and it is our desire to support the missionaries who are building relationships and instituting programs to prevent this from happening.

Ways to serve:
Access to medical/dental care is a luxury that is foreign to many Nepalese people. Our medical teams come and provide medical attention to many who would never otherwise receive it. Note: It is recommended that at least one medical doctor travels with the team. Non-medical personnel are always welcome.
Children are a big part of our ministry focus. Teams will have the opportunity to love and serve children through regular interaction with them at the mission site in the form of games, crafts*, songs, etc. as well as at other local ministry sites. * Teams are responsible for bringing necessary craft supplies and should budget appropriately.
We know that many children living in orphanages around the world are economic orphans rather than orphans in the traditional sense of having lost both parents. Our child sponsorship program is proof that we aim to keep families together by alleviating some of the financial burden that many families around the world face. While all of this is true, it is also true that there are children living in orphanages or group homes who deserve to be held, played with, and offered the hope that comes from knowing that there is a Heavenly Father who loves them unconditionally, if we cannot bring about the change that would reunite them with their families.
Missionaries often don’t have the budget for repairs or updates, so we ask our teams to contribute to the ongoing upkeep of the mission site, and help with bigger projects as needed. Additionally, many of the local schools are constantly in a state of needing repair.
Sports are a great way to connect with people whom you've never met before! We love using sports as a way to enter into conversation and relationship.
Many pastors are laymen, who serve their congregations as volunteers. Pastoral training is a valuable tool that will equip these men with a better understanding of how to present the gospel and meet the spiritual needs of those in their community.
