Nepal and Finland established diplomatic relations in 1974. Relations between the two countries have been marked by friendship and cooperation.
Educated Nepalis in Finland work as engineers, managers and teachers. Students sometimes work on the side as cooks and waiters. Unskilled workers immigrating to Finland are required to pay for their jobs, and compensation for their work is often minimal. Sometimes they must accept the salary offered so they can pay back loans. This circumstance makes life and living difficult.
Nepalis in Finland are largely Hindus, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods hoping to gain protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are other Hindus who are much more philosophical, especially among the Brahmins.
Nepalis in Finland are unengaged and unreached with the good news of salvation. Their largest need is to know their creator God, who has made provisions for the penalty of their sins so they can have a lifechanging relationship with Him.
* Scripture Prayers for the Nepali, general in Finland.
Pray for believers to take the good news to Nepali families in Finland. Pray for Nepali families to become carriers of God’s provision to Nepali and Finnish people in Finland. Pray for church plants that will bring light to a spiritually dark place.
