Communities where He is least known

In Nepal, over 80% of people are Hindu, 10% Buddhist, 5% Muslim and 1.4% Christian.

People living in the Terai

The southern plains of Terai are home to more than 50% of the country’s population, with a variety of caste and ethnic backgrounds and languages. Agriculture is the main occupation. Challenges include poverty; ethnic inequalities between gender and caste; disasters (especially earthquakes, floods and fires); health and hygiene issues. Of the nearly one million Muslims living in Nepal, 97% live in the Terai. SIM is reaching out to Nepalis from different backgrounds and ethnicities in the Terai, demonstrating God’s love through a variety of transformative and
empowering ministries.

People living with disabilities

More than half a million people are known to be living with disabilities in Nepal. The actual number is higher, as many are segregated from society due to stigma and shame. The spiritual beliefs of Nepalis have traditionally regarded disability as punishment for bad deeds in a previous life. People with disabilities are often treated as objects of pity; some are neglected
and abandoned.

People with disabilities have more health problems, lower education levels, and higher unemployment. They also experience higher rates of abuse, discrimination and social exclusion.

Through partnerships with other organisations, SIMers are reaching out to those affected by disabilities by providing treatment, rehabilitation, vocational training, advocacy for inclusion and social participation, and psychosocial care and support.

Oracíones

1

Pray for work permit/visas; it is not easy to get these documents.

2

Pray for Christians, as persecution has been increasing.

3

Pray for Muslim people living in the Terai to experience fullness of life in Him.

4

Pray for political stability and safety. 

5

Pray for our various ministries, that Nepalis will be empowered and experience positive transformation.


Stories from this Country

A way in the desert for widows

After their husband's death, widows in Burkina Faso were often left on their own with no material or moral support. Many times their in-laws would take their children or even accuse them for the death of their husband, saying that they had a "bad spirit."

Are you ready?

We may have been shivering 12,800 feet above sea level in the little mountain town of Ayaviri, but the warm welcome we received from our Andean brothers and sisters in Christ was unlike any other.

Key of the kingdom

Enraged at his Christian wife for going to a church conference, the Muslim husband locked up the house as soon as she left, declaring to the neighbors that his wife would never enter his home again. To make his point, he threw the key into the river as he headed to his girlfriend's house for the week.

"It touched my heart"

PbeeMai was like any other twenty-year-old: looking for validation from his peers, wanting to be well-liked and popular. But he saw something different – something perhaps even worthwhile – in the way Brian welcomed students into his home and built relationships with them.

Galmi Hospital: Going where no believer has gone before

This is an amazing profession, working at Galmi Hospital. I used to dream about becoming an astronaut. But here, rather than exploring barren planets devoid of life, we get to venture into unchartered territories where there are living beings made in the image of God.

Sharing the light of Jesus with villagers in Niger

As soon as I get out of the car, I am greeted by six kids eager to learn. Their first question is: "Did you bring the video?"

Transformed by short-term missions

For many years, I have felt that the Lord was calling me to something. I prayed for wisdom and clarity but a restless and unsettled feeling plagued me.

Planting seeds of hope

The Esan region of northeast Thailand is often described as one of the hardest places to do ministry in Thailand. Christians are few and far between, Buddhism is strong, and drug addiction is widespread.

Light at the end of the tunnel

I took a deep breath and reconsidered my options. The most appealing choice for me would require us to backtrack several miles to the place we took the shot cut and then climb over a high mountain pass.

Gozo al Compartir La Historia de Esperanza

La Biblia es la palabra de Dios, y quizás también podríamos llamarla el libro de la Esperanza. Podemos ver a Dios obrando, y Su plan de salvación a través de Jesús desenvolverse a lo largo de sus páginas. Esto es lo que muchos cristianos han entendido en un pueblo rural de la provincia de Loja. Continúa leyendo para conocer un testimonio del poder de la palabra de Dios en los corazones de Su pueblo, equipándoles para compartir mejor sobre la esperanza que hay en ellos.

Lessons from a Peruvian prison

When I began working with foreign English speaking women on parole, I had no idea the work would include ministering to children, but when several women brought their children to the Bible study and we couldn’t provide child care, we had to get creative.

Sacrifice and obedience, even when it's difficult

Hellen is a single mother of nine children. She works very hard to provide for her children. Every day she sells charcoal in Acholi Quarter in Uganda.

Bringing art and beauty to Kenya's trash heaps

What business does a group of artists have, visiting a huge rubbish dump in Nairobi, sitting in tiny shacks with the trash sorters, and bringing art materials to their kids?

Trading death for life

His name is Adam, and he was a witch doctor.

From noodles to soccer balls

Aof had gone to church for many Sundays and had said many “Amens” to the prayers people had prayed for her – but nothing really worked until she challenged God herself.

The seed planter

This week we were privileged to hear the testimony of a man whose life was eternally changed by a simple question. We invited Martin to sit around a table on our back porch to share with us how the Lord saved him, and how God opened his eyes to the truth of the Gospel. This is Martin’s story.

¿Existen más cristianos en mi Universidad?

Las universidades son lugares donde la fe de los cristianos es puesta a prueba. Necesitan ánimo para saber que no están solos como creyentes y que pueden compartir el Evangelio con sus compañeros de clase. Lea más sobre el impacto que el ministerio juvenil tiene en las universidades de Loja.

Encouraged and empowered: Helping women help themselves

Like most girls from her village, Khushboo grew up accepting the established gender roles. She would do housework in her parents’ home until the day she moved into her husband’s home, and she wouldn't leave their husband’s house until she was carried out – when she died.

Mark is making gospel connections in Ecuador

When you join any new community, it's a challenge to form relationships. With God, however, new relationships are often built in exciting and unexpected ways.
