Nepal—Land of Mountains


Nepal is a small, landlocked country between India and China. The country is known for its mountains in the north with eight of the world's ten tallest mountains, including the highest point on earth, Mount Everest, called Sagarmatha in Nepali. It contains more than 240 peaks over 20,000 feet.

Two young men from Nepal attended the All-Asian Creation Conference in Malaysia last year. These men came to me and told me that they now wanted to go home and have a Nepal creation conference. I tried to encourage them, but I was aware of the huge political and religious obstacles that they would face.

They went home with the prayer of Caleb on their lips, “give me that mountain,” as in relates to their homeland and a creation conference.

I am pleased to tell you that in April of 2012 was the first-ever Nepal Creation Conference. This conference was held in Khumaltar, Kathmandu, and had over 400 in attendance. The Mountains of Nepal will rejoice with the words of the Creator.
