Eight Nepali Christians were cleared of “proselytising” charges on 6 December, bringing a close to their ordeal.
“Praise the Lord!” a VOM contact said. “All eight Christians having court case got clean sheet today. We are thankful to all who continuously prayed and helped in many different ways.”
Police arrested a pastor, two school principals and five school staff members on 9 June, accusing them of evangelism after they distributed children’s books about Jesus at a Christian school. Under Nepal’s new constitution, evangelism is a crime. Please pray for Nepali Christians, who face increasing persecution under the new constitution.

- Pray that the released believers will not be afraid to resume evangelising the lost with the Good News of Christ.
- Pray that this answer to prayer will give Nepali Christians great encouragement to remain faithful and to depend on God to do His work regardless of circumstances.
- Ask God to give Nepalis a deep curiosity about the Gospel they are forbidden to hear and to bring them into contact with believers who will witness to them.
