 Nepal, Maoists oppose Christians

RURAL NEPALESE CHRISTIANS FACE GROWING OPPOSITION FROM MAOISTS

Native missionaries taking the gospel to rural ethnic people in the mountains of Nepal are facing persecution by Maoist insurgents who are doing their utmost to disrupt missionary travel and church planting. They have resorted to violence to drive those who spread the gospel away from their “territory.”
Recently members of one congregation were in the middle of a meeting when they were surrounded by gun-wielding Maoists. But after talking to the angry mob, the Christians persuaded the attackers not to harm anyone.
In another incident, missionaries trying to reach a remote area to follow up on new believers were almost forced to turn back by Maoists who tried to capture them.
Despite the dangers, native missionaries continue to work in these difficult conditions, bringing the gospel to isolated ethnic groups in Maoist-overrun locations. Most of these people live in poverty without proper healthcare or education.
