Sunday School Around the World: Nepal
About 80 percent of the people in Nepal are Hindu, and about 10 percent are Buddhist. In practice, many follow a mixture of both religions. About 2 percent of the people are Christian, and their numbers are increasing. Those who come to Christ from other religions may be persecuted by their families, neighbors, teachers, and bosses, or others.
The youth in the photo are studying the Bible. They have some unusual animal guests visiting their class! (Hindus honor cattle, and it is against the law to kill a cow in Nepal.)
