Introduction / History

The Nepalese in the United States are Americans who have their origins in Nepal. They began to come to America in the last century. They are usually called Nepalis here. Their main ethnic groups are Paharis, Madhesis and Tharus.

Many Nepalese emigrated because of poor conditions in Nepal due to the Nepalese Civil War. Many live in New York. They have social, religious and cultural celebrations such as the Nepali New Year. The Nepali Bhasi from Bhutan have come to live in America too.

The Nepalese in America are mainly Hindus by religion. They speak Nepali, English and other languages also.

Prayer Points

* Pray that American Christians will help lead the Nepalese in the USA to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials will lead them to salvation.
