The Nepalis

I just read about the Nepali brothers.

They carry heavy loads of supplies from the last bus stop in the Mustang mountain region of northern Nepal–a journey almost straight up–to a village six-days away.

Seems they went to this village to establish a church but quickly discovered that the locals would not allow outsiders to stay unless they had a job. The only jobs available were as porters who would carry, on their backs, hundreds of pounds of supplies like rice, salt and other provisions from the base of the mountain to the village at the top. Six days down. Six days up.

They talk to everyone they meet about Jesus.

They’ve covered five villages with the gospel and established a church of believers in the village at the top of the mountain.

What is interesting is that they are both college educated and could have “good” jobs any where else.
