History
After a war with Britain, the government of Nepal did not trust foreigners. So Nepal was closed off from the rest of the world from 1816 to 1951. Few people in Nepal had the opportunity to learn about Jesus during those years. Thousands of people died during a 10-year war that ended in 2006 between Maoists (communists) and the government.

 

Religion
Mostly Hindu, many Buddhist, many who mix both religions.

Persecution
People who come to Christ from other religions are sometimes persecuted by their own families, neighbors, and bosses. Hindus honor cattle, and it is against the law to kill cattle in Nepal.
