Introduction

The Nat of Nepal are professional dancers, singers and acrobats by tradition. Today many in the Nat community are employed in farming and other trades. They usually live in hamlets on the outskirts of villages and towns. Their work and semi nomadic lifestyle have caused them to be impoverished.


Ministry Obstacles

It is difficult to reach peoples who are on the move.


Outreach Ideas

There are many Nepali believers who can reach the Nat community as His ambassadors.


Prayer Focus

Pray that Nat believers will allow the Holy Spirit to shine through them so that others will be drawn to the Savior. Pray for families of Nat believers loving and serving others to grow reproducing churches. Pray for a chain reaction of families reaching Nat families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others. Pray for grace and truth expanding into the entire Nat society as all believers learn to love others.
