In the kingdom of Bhutan, only a small minority — about 25,000 people — are Christians, and only about a quarter of the country’s 20 provinces have any local churches. The king identifies himself as the defender of the Buddhist faith, and the government works covertly to discourage the spread of Christianity.
Nidup and some fellow pastors have launched the Love Bhutan Initiative, sending Bhutanese Christians as missionaries into the parts of Bhutan least reached with the gospel. These partners in the gospel send devices to enable local Christians to host screenings of the JESUS film. Later, a follow-up team meets with those who have responded to the film.
